Using Self-Service User Preferences

User preferences enable self-service users to set default values for themselves to minimize the need for repetitive data entry. After they have been set, the default values remain associated with the user until changed or deleted. Self-service users can select their own user preferences or you can do it for them by using the User Profiles Management process to assign them the latest values corresponding to their profiles.

The User Preferences page displays the Share My Information link. A self-service user, for delegating the access of his or her data to another person, can click this link to navigate to the Share My Information - Summary self-service page.
