Setting General Preferences

On the General tab, you can set your preferred time zone, language, profile picture, out-of-office assistant, and so on.

  1. On the Home page, click Tools, and then User Preferences.
  2. Click General.
  3. Set your preferences for:
    • Your time zone. You can type ahead, for example, type "PT" for Pacific Time. The time format that you specify is used throughout the application.

    • Your language. When you sign out and sign back in, the user interface displays in the language you selected. If you don’t select a language, then your browser’s locale is used.

    • Your profile photo. See Setting Your Profile Picture.

    • Which alias table to use and how you want members or their aliases displayed. See Setting the Display of Member Names or Aliases.

    • Your preferences for Approvals, including whether to display aliases and whether to show approval units that aren't yet started. You can also set the out-of-office assistant and set Approvals actions to be in effect when you're away. See Setting Approvals Options.

  4. Click Save.
