Basic Settings

Basic settings


The basic settings that allow an administrator to define the essential behavior of the system can be found on the Company Settings page which is available from 'Settings' on the main menu. Most of these preferences can remain unchanged and you will have a very flexible system. However with some changes the system can be fine tuned to provide exactly what you need. The Company Settings page has 10 sections which are explained in detail in our Company settings in depth article.




But, first we will introduce and outline them here in this article.
