This functionality allows agent users to define their own values for some system configuration settings. These values can be defined in the user preferences section in the new Advanced pane.
Administrators are able to review the user defined values for those settings and reset them if necessary and to forbid or allow user modifications on specific settings.
Every agent can define a value for a setting using the Personal preferences screen. Once you are in this screen, select the Advanced option in the preferences panel.
Using the navigation widget in the left side bar, select the desired group of settings. Then you can change the value for a specific setting and save it using the check mark button in the right side of the setting widget.
Once you modified a value, it is possible to revert this change using the Reset to default icon button present in the right top corner of the modified setting widget.
When a setting is available for user modification, all users are able to set their own values. Depending on the nature of the setting, values can be very different among users, and also compared to the original global value. This package includes an administrative tool to review and delete user set values if needed.
Click on the Show user settings button from the alternative menu on the settings that are enabled to show the Review users setting values screen.
On this screen all of the user specific values for the selected setting will be shown. To delete a single value click on the trash can icon in the right corner of every setting widget, or delete all user values for this setting by clicking on the trash icon in the outer setting widget.
For the settings that are enabled to hold user values Reset setting feature has been enhanced to either reset the setting completely or just the user values.
Clicking on the Reset setting button will display a dialog showing the possible reset options.
