PreferencesIn the Preferences tab, you can specify the settings to be used in the contact person's Partner Zone and the emails (e.g. the password reset email) sent to him/her. The tab integrates the customisable settings that are set in   Defaults tab , Formats tab and Time tracking tab   of Advanced Configuration . You can decide to use contact person's provider's settings or configure the contact person's Partner Zone and email formatting to his/her liking.
  • After you click Edit, three columns appear. The columns are:

    Main Account ValuesThe Partner Zone and email settings selected for the contact person's provider. For example, the provider uses French for the Partner Zone interface, “French” will appear in the Language row and the Main Account Values column for his contact person.
    User Defined ValuesThe individual settings used in the contact person's Partner Zone and his/her emails. For example, the provider entered "mmm-dd-yyyy" (e.g. May 10 2010) for Date Format, but the order for the contact person is "dd-mmm-yyyy" (e.g. 10 May 2010).
    Format PreviewsAn example of how a value will appear according to your specifications. For example, i f you enter #0.0000 for the Rate Format, a numerical value such as 15.12345 appears in Format Previews .
  • Select the radio button of a given item in the Main Account Values column if you want the contact person to use the same Partner Zone setting as his/her provider. The related field in the User Defined Values column is locked.  

  • Select the radio button of a given item in the User Defined Values column if you want the contact person to use a custom setting in the Partner Zone. The field is now unlocked, and you can specify what setting will be used in the contact person's Partner Zone.

Advanced Preference FieldsIn the advanced settings you can customise how time will be displayed in a contact person's Partner Zone.
Main Time Zone

The time zone to be used in the contact person's Partner Zone.

    • To use the time zone where the provider resides, select the radio button next to User Time. The Partner Zone will be displayed in the contact person's local time. For example, the Partner Zone is hosted on your server, which is in a city that uses Eastern Standard Time, but the contact person uses Central Standard Time. If you select the User Time Zone radio button, all time in the contact person's Partner Zone will be displayed in Central Standard Time.
    • To use the time zone of the server which hosts the contact person's Partner Zone, first select the radio button in the User Defined Values column and then the System Time Zone radio button. The Partner Zone will be displayed in the time zone of the host server. For example, the Partner Zone is hosted on your server, which is in a city that uses Eastern Standard Time, but the contact person uses Central Standard Time. If you select the System Time Zone radio button, all time in the contact person's Partner Zone will be displayed in Eastern Standard Time.

To select the time zone which the contact person uses, go to the Address tab in the contact person's Display.

Display User Time

The option to display the user's time zone next to the system's time zone in the Partner Zone.

    • To have the system display the time zone where the provider resides next to the system time zone, select the radio button in the User Defined Values column and then the Yes radio button. The user's time zone is displayed in parentheses.
      User Time Example

  • To create the appropriate expression for the numbering formats, use the following signs:

    #A digit or absent if the first and/or final digit in the number is zero. For example, you enter the expression "###.###" for Rate Format . You have the number 1.5. The system shows "1.5".
    0A digit or zero if the first and/or final digit in the number is zero. For example, you enter the expression "000.000" for Rate Format . You have the number 1.5. The system shows "001.500".
    %The number is multiplied by 100 and shown as a percentage. For example, you enter the expression "#.# %" for Percentage Format . You have the number 1.234. The system shows "123.4%"
    . (full stop)

    The decimal separator. When you enter a full stop (.) into an expression, the system uses whatever item you selected for the decimal separator. It does not necessarily mean a full-stop will appear in the number. For example, you selected the comma (,) for the decimal separator. You enter the expression 0.00 for Currency Format . You have the number .5. The system shows “0,50”.

    To change your decimal separator, go to System > Configuration > General Configuration > Advanced   Configuration > Formats .

    , (comma) 

    The grouping separator. When you enter a comma (,) into an expression, the system uses whatever item you selected for the grouping separator. It does not necessarily mean a comma will appear in the number. For example, you selected a half stop"." for the decimal separator and "space" for the grouping separator. You enter the expression #,###.00 for Rate Format. You have the number 15,555.50. The system shows "15 555.50".

    To change your grouping separator, go to System > Configuration > General Configuration > Advanced   Configuration > Formats .

  • The final digit right of the decimal point in the expression is always rounded up whenever a number is longer than what is permitted in the expression. For example, you enter the expression "0.00" for Rate Format. You have the number 12.345. The system rounds up 4 and shows "12.35".

  • To include the option of displaying additional digits whenever available, include one or more hashtags (#) at the end of the expression. The number of hastags in the expression represent the exact number of optional digits to be displayed. However, unlike the inclusion of zeros in the number whenever you use 0 in the expression, the system will not add zeros to the number in order to satisfy the number of ending hashtags. For example, you enter the expression "0.00##" for Rate Format. You have the number 12.345. Because you used the hashtag instead of 0 in the expression, the system shows "12.345". Furthermore, if the number is longer than what is allowed in the expression, the final hashtag right of the decimal point in the expression is rounded up. For example, you enter the expression "0.00##" for Rate Format . You have the number 12.34567. The system rounds up 6 and shows "12.3457".
Percentage Format

The manner in which percentage values will be displayed in the contact person's Partner Zone.

If you selected the radio button in the User Defined Values column, enter the desired format into the field.

Rate Format

The manner in which rates will be displayed (e.g. the placement of the grouping separator and the number of digits after the decimal separator) in the contact person's Partner Zone.

If you selected the radio button in the User Defined Values column, enter the desired format into the field.

Currency Format

The manner in which amounts of money will be displayed (e.g. the placement of the grouping separator and the number of digits after the decimal separator) in the contact person's Partner Zone.

If you selected the radio button in the User Defined Values column, enter the desired format into the field.

Currency Sign

The placement of the currency sign.

If you selected the radio button in the   User Defined Values   column, click on the drop-down list and then decide whether you want the sign to appear before or after the value.
