Update User Preferences Window


ResSched allows individual users to tailor the way information is entered and displayed. When a new user is created, the initial values for his preferences are taken from the System Settings. This window is not available to view only users.

 

To speed up information entry when booking resources,  ResSched lets users establish default and routine values for many of its booking entry fields. When making a new booking, the default values are automatically displayed, and the routine values are available from drop-down lists. Users can accept or change any of these values when making a booking. Each user can maintain his own preference values for these entries, but the initial values for a new user are taken from the System Settings. System Administrators can also reset all these preferences to those in System Settings.
