Set your preferences for the user interface

When Administrators set up Microsoft Social Engagement, they define default values that apply to all users of the same solution. However, you can override the Administrator’s defaults to display the user interface according to your requirements. For your Social Engagement profile, you can select the following:

  • Screen language

  • Default time frame in Analytics

  • Preferred color theme

  • Date and time format

  • Number format

Edit your user preferences

  1. On the nav bar, click the Settings button Configuration button > My Preferences.

    --OR--

    Navigate to Settings > Personal Settings.

  2. On Your Preferences, in the drop-down menus and dialog boxes, set your options.

  3. Click Save to apply your changes.
