Settings Menu Information


Each user can adjust their User Account and workstation settings by going to the Settings menu at the top right-hand corner of the page. This article contains a brief overview of all the options available under each user's Settings menu.

Email Address - The address which emails are sent from when using "Email Link" and "Email Copy." This is the address that password reset links and "Follow" notifications are sent to. The email address can be changed to any other email address you have access to.  

Login Information

Enable Automated Login - Available only when Active Directory is detected.  When enabled, the user will be automatically logged in when accessing the website on that computer. For more information, click here.

Allow Certificate-based login - Once enabled it behaves the same as Auto-login to the end-user. Based on a digital certificate that the user must install on their PC. 

ImportantAutomated Login and Certificate-based Authentication are features of the ActiveX control and are only supported by Internet Explorer. With the end of IE support, we strongly recommend using Federated Identity for advanced authentication methods.
