Adding a settings rule

You can change settings for individual users or groups of users by adding setting rules. When a setting rule matches a user, the value for the rule overrides the default setting value. The first rule that applies to the user is used.

To add a setting rule:

  1. Open the Administration tool.
  2. From the page menu, click Settings, or click View Settings on the settings card on the start view.
  3. Locate the setting to change.
  4. Click the actions menu (…) for the setting to change.
  5. Click Add Rule to display the Add Rule dialog.
  6. Enter a name for the rule.
  7. Change the setting value.
  8. Search for a user or role to which to assign the rule.
    To add a user:
    1. Start typing the name of the user in the Add user text box.
    2. Select the user to add the user to the Added list.
    3. Continue adding users, as required.
    To add a role:
    1. Start typing the name of the security role in the Add role text box.
    2. Select the role to add it to the Added list. If no suggested list is displayed or the role is not in the list, you can alternatively enter the role and click Add role.
    3. Continue adding roles, as required.
  9. Click Add.
  10. Click Save.
  11. Click OK to confirm.
