This week’s tip is slightly self-serving, but I’m sure other PLM 360 Administrators will appreciate their end users heeding this advice. When you get your shiny new PLM 360 log in, there are a few things you’ll want to do. Nothing too taxing – some basic housekeeping to make your life (and the admin’s!) easier.
After you’ve logged in and taken the tour, a great first order of business is to verify the settings in your profile and update your email, contact info and notification preferences. Your PLM administrator may have taken care of several items, but it doesn’t hurt to check their validity. Go to your profile (upper right-hand corner):
On the first tab, “Edit Account Information”, make sure your email is set correctly as well as your time zone. Setting the correct email is particularly important for administrators; if a password reset is needed, the temporary password gets sent to the email address in the tenant.
On the “Manage Electronic Notifications” tab, you’ll want to review the settings and perhaps subscribe to any events you want included in your daily notification email. It’s nice to have some control over email notifications; some people want minimal contact while others like to know as much as possible.
See the Wiki for more information about managing your profile – just wanted to highlight some of the more important bits that sometimes get overlooked. I must confess I didn’t do any of these ‘housekeeping’ tasks right away – way too excited to dive right in! – but now know the importance of having a solid profile. ^MS
