Site Details

  1. Enter the name of the organization, which will appear in the header, in the ‘Site name’ field

  2. Enter the website slogan in ‘Slogan’ field

    • If no slogan is entered, the space will be left empty

    • The use of the slogan is dependent on the site’s theme

Time

Example If we set Wednesday as the 'First day of the week', the calendar will appear as below:

    • The time zone may affect Room Bookings, the Calendar, and Events among other features; as such it's important that this is set appropriately

  2. Choose whether users may set their own time zone

    • This will override the default

  3. Choose if the system should remind users at login if their time zone is not set

  1. Choose whether new users should have the time zone set as the default, empty, or may set their own at registration.

    • This last option only applies if you have also chosen to allow users to set their own time zone.
