25Live allows you to configure a number of system defaults for the application.
Getting to the General Settings
The System Settings section is accessible from the More menu in the top navigation bar.
Use the menu link to go to the General Settings section.
Use the System Defaults link in the left-side menu to view the section.
How to Customize System Defaults
1. Select if Sign In is Required
When Required is selected, this setting sends all 25Live users directly to the sign-in prompt, and no guest or viewer seat user can browse this 25Live instance. If your institution is using Single-Sign On authentication, additional technical adjustments are required. Contact your Series25 Account Manager for assistance (firstname.lastname@example.org).
2. Optionally Add a Sign In Message
This sets the message displayed in the 25Live user sign-in window.
3. Set the Public Search Username
This is for the contact username of a 25Live user whose searches are automatically made available to all 25Live users. Be sure this user’s security setup is appropriate for creating the searches you want to make public.
4. Optionally Add a Header Logo Link
The 25Live logo (or your institution's logo, if customized in the Configure Theme section), can be linked to a URL. Type a valid URL in this field.
5. Select the Event Display Field Option
This option controls if the event name or event title is used for primary event identification in 25Live. If you choose the event title and an event has no title, the event name will be used.
6. Save Your Selections
Use the Save button to save your choices. The Cancel button will remove unsaved changes.
