User Profile and Preferences: What They Are and How to Modify Them

This article explains what a user's profile and preferences are and how to view or modify them.

Overview

A user's profile contains information about them, such as their name, phone number, and email address. The profile can also include their photo. In addition to these details, the profile stores certain user preferences that streamline their use of the system. 

To view or edit your user profile:

1. Hover your cursor over the arrow beside your initial in the upper right corner of the window.

2. Select Profile & Preferences.

  • Click Reset Password to change your password.

If Single Sign-on is enabled, the option to change the email address and password will not be available, as the user must change this data in the security system.
