System Configuration for User¶
In OroCRM, you can configure available system settings on four configuration levels: system, organization, website, and user.
On user level, there is a number of options that you can configure specifically for your application instance, but which will not affect system-wide or organization-wide configuration. Here, for instance, you can update the contact information of the primary assigned sales representative, or change your email configuration settings.
User-level configuration settings can fall back to organization settings. For this, select the Use Organization check box next to the selected option. To go back to the default user-level settings, click Reset on the top right.
Two categories of settings are available for configuration at user level:
- System Configuration (General Setup, Integrations)
- Commerce (Sales)
More information about the options available for each of the two categories is available below.
