What you can see and do in this application depends on the security permissions associated with your 25Live user account. If you can't access something you think you should be able to, contact your 25Live Administrator.
Use the More menu in the top navigation bar to access User Settings option.
25Live offers the following configurable user preferences:
- Edit Contact Info
- Change Password
- Date/Time Preferences
- Dark Mode
Contact information can only be changed by users with sufficient permissions. A security group must have:
Basic 20.0 - Change Password to alter their own password
Admin 12.0 - Create, Edit, Copy Contacts to edit contact details
The Basic 7.0 - View Contacts permission will also be needed to view information on the "Edit Contact Info" tab
Users without these settings can still edit their own date and time preferences and set dark mode.
Editing Your Contact Info
The Edit Contact Info section shows a display of contact fields. Complete or change any fields you like. The only required fields are last name and work email address. Fields include:
- Basic Information: Name, prefix or suffix, title, and internal ID (for your institution's use only)
- Work Address
- Home Address (your institution determines if these fields are used)
- Email (including both work and home email addresses, an optional email signature, and an option to copy yourself on emails sent from within 25Live)
Use the Save Contact Information button to continue.
Tip: The Email Signature Field Allows Formatted Text
Use the edit icon () to enter an editing mode when adding your Email Signature, and use the rich text formatting controls to add color, bold, italics, and other options that are compatible within emails.
Changing Your Password
To Change Password, enter then confirm your desired new password. Passwords may contain only letters, numbers, and underscore characters.
Use the Change Password button to continue.
Adjusting Your Date/Time Preferences
There are three sections of preference choices you can adjust.
1. Make Selections for Date and Time Display & Calendar Start Day
Complete the Date and Time Display fields to update your current date/time preferences. A helpful date and time example is displayed above the fields that change to reflect your selections, which includes:
- Date Order
- Time Display
- Calendar Start Day - Week start day: This option changes the weekday you want to be displayed first in your calendar views.
- Note: This preference does not affect the start day in reports that display calendars.
Note: Your Date and Time Preferences Are Used in Emails
Your chosen date and time preferences will also be used for the date format in emails sent within the application by your 25Live contact.
2. Set Your Availability View Display Hours
You can choose default open and close hours for availability views (such as in Location details and Resource details views) using the sliders. For example, settings of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm specify that grids will show activity from 9:00 AM through 4:59 PM.
3. Adjust Your Time Zone
These Settings Are Only For Your User
Changing your time zone affects only your personal environment for viewing and specifying event times. Your updated preferences won't take effect until you reload your browser.
To set your timezone preference, make a selection from the dropdown menu.
4. Optionally Choose to Turn on Dark Mode
25Live Pro offers you the option to switch to a darker theme by toggling the setting for Dark Mode to Yes.
5. Confirm and Optionally Reload the Application
Use the Update Preferences button to save your selections. You may need to reload the application to see changes.
