Setting User Preferences

You can control how you interact with Oracle Workflow by specifying user preferences that you can set from the User Preferences web page. The values that you specify in the User Preferences web page override the default global values set by your workflow administrator in the Global User Preferences web page.

2. The User Preferences web page displays a summary of your current user preferences. Choose Update to modify these preferences.
3. In the Language and Territory fields, use the list of values to select the NLS_LANGUAGE and NLS_TERRITORY combination that defines the default language-dependent behavior and territory-dependent formatting of your notification sessions.
4. In the Date Format field, specify an Oracle Database-compliant date format to use for your database session. An example of an Oracle Database-compliant date format is DD-Mon-RRRR. If you do not specify a date format, then the date format defaults to DD-MON-YYYY.
Note: Oracle Workflow may include a time element when relevant for certain displayed dates, even if you do not include a time format with your date format. If you specify a time format along with your date format, then in those situations when Oracle Workflow displays a time element, you will see two time elements following your date.
5. Leave the Document Home Node field blank. This functionality is reserved for future use.
