Set your preferences for the user interface


Microsoft Social Engagement will be discontinued on January 16, 2020. Additionally, starting October 1, 2019, the service will no longer support Twitter as a data source. For more information, see Changes coming to Dynamics 365 Market Insights preview and Microsoft Social Engagement.

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

  • Chart format

Edit your user preferences

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


    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.
