Rep Console Settings: Manage Default Rep Console Settings
Manage Representative Console Settings
You can configure the default representative console settings for your entire user base, applying a consistent representative console user experience and increasing team efficiency. You can force settings, allow settings to be overridden by the user, or leave settings unmanaged. If you select Unmanaged, the BeyondTrust default setting will be displayed alongside for your consideration.
Each Enable or Disable setting provides an administrative checkbox option to become a forced setting. Forced settings take effect on the user's next login and do not allow configuration in the console. Unforced settings may be overridden by a user through the settings window in therepresentative console.
For more information, please see Change Settings and Preferences in the Representative Console.
A forced setting cannot be overridden unless an administrator deselects the Forced checkbox option for that setting in the /login administrative interface.
Choose the settings you want to be the default for your users, and click the Save button at the bottom of the page.
Note that saved settings take effect only upon login to the console. Even if you save and apply the changes by clicking the Apply Now button at the bottom of the page, detailed later, the user will not use the new settings until login.
If, for instance, you wish to set up default settings for new users but leave existing users' settings unchanged, save your managed settings but do not apply them. This will make it so all new representative console logins will begin with your managed default settings. Existing users will have forced settings applied upon next login, but all other settings will remain unchanged.
