Understanding System Configuration and Settings

Events allows you to customize a wide range of settings. You can access the System Configuration and Settings menu from the Events System Maintenance page.

Please note two things:

1. There are different options available depending on whether you are logged in at the branch level or the All Branches level. If you can't find an option you know exists, check to make sure you are logged in at the right level.

2. The System Maintenance Page opens directly to Style Configuration Maintenance. There is a menu along the left hand side that can help you navigate through the page.

The following illustration is an example of what options are available to specific branches.

The following are the menu definitions. Items marked with an * are only available in ALL BRANCHES mode. Items marked with a double ** are only available in individual branch mode. Items without either appear on both menus.
