User Settings window
|Top Previous Next|
The User Settings window can be used to change name, display, and email settings that pertain to the current user logged into Design Manager or the computer from which the user is operating. This window is accessed by selecting the File - User Settings.
The Name, Title, and Email fields are the same ones that can be set under the respective user’s password. Should the fields be grey and not accessible, then that means that the user does not have rights to change them as defined by their password settings.
The Name field is the name of the user as reported on various windows including the To-do-list.
Title is the position or title of the user such as “Office Manager” or “Designer.”
Email is used to enter the respective users e-mail address. The Title and Email is also used when creating certain Word™ documents from the Address Book to identify the sender of the document.
The Default Email Message Text is used to set the body text of any e-mail sent from Design Manager. This is useful if your e-mail does not support signatures. The text can be over-ridden for each individual e-mail sent. If Outlook is your E-mail setting option, do NOT use this default Email message function, use the one provided by Outlook.
The Visual Settings can be used to change the look of the windows, toolbar, and colors in Design Manager. There are a number of themes and combinations that are included with Design Manger. The user can experiment with these settings but the user must exit Design Manager and Restart the program to see the changes.
To increase the on screen font size choose the Change button. Select the font size you prefer and choose OK.
***IMPORTANT NOTE: Choosing anything larger than the Normal (9pt) font size may cause windows and fields to show less information.***
Workstation Settings - these options are used to control functions specific to the computer from which the user is working.
SMTP - SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) allows you to specify a SMTP server, either on your own network or from an Email provider such as Yahoo, Google, MSN, etc., through which Emails from Design Manager will be routed. To use your own SMTP settings, click on the SMTP Settings button to enter the necessary settings on the SMTP Settings Window. Using SMTP will allow a more advanced Email Window to be utilized when Emailing through Design Manager with features including adding attachments to the Email, having Blind Carbon Copies (Bcc:), etc.
***The Synchronize Tasks/Appointments with Outlook option is NOT available in the Cloud, unless you are a CloudSpace user.***
