Configuring your Account

In the account configuration screen there are multiple tabs, but a few elements will display at all times:

(1) Account Status

Choose if you want your new Sub-Account to be created as Active(default) or Disabled. You can always adjust this later by editing your Sub-Account.

(2) Permissions

This is where you can toggle on/off the accesses you want to give your Sub-Account  (See this article for more information)

Enter all the contact information that applies to the Account. 


Note: As of 2013-05-14, Environment Setting is now deprecated.  The default setting of "Folder/Flipbook" will apply to all new Accounts without an option to change.  Any Account that is currently using one of the other environment settings will continue as is until they choose the default "Folder/Flipbook" setting, after which they will no longer have an option to change.

Here you can select other optional settings that will apply to the Account:
