On the My Settings tab, you can customize a number of settings that apply only to yourself. The settings are:


SettingDescription
Current passwordYour current password (masked). You can do nothing further in this field.
New PasswordTo change your password, type a new password in this field. For security reasons, you must create a strong password. XperienCentral enforces a strong password which adheres to one or a combination of the following characteristics:
  • Is a long password.
  • Contains spaces and words.
  • Contains special characters. A special character is anything that is not a letter or a number.
  • Does not resemble your username, first name, last name or email address.
  • Does not resemble your previous password.
  • Contains one or more numbers.

In addition to the enforced rules specified above, a strong password also adheres to the following:

  • Does not contain any string of letters that spell your company name, your job description, the name of a pet, your nickname, or any other word that could be associated with you personally.
  • No string of letters spells a word that can be found in the dictionary of your language.
  • If you use numbers, they do not represent anything associated with you such as your birth date, age, house address, and so forth.

When you type your new password into the field, the "Password Strength" field will indicate the strength of your password using different colors. The following colors are used to indicate the password's strength:

  • Red — The password is extremely weak (not accepted).
  • Yellow — The password is moderately weak (not accepted).
  • Blue — The password is good.
  • Green — The password is strong.
Retype new passwordType your new password in this field in order to verify that it matches what you typed in the "New Password" field.
Use XperienCentral time zoneUse the time zone that the XperienCentral server uses for timestamps.
Use my own time zoneSelect your own time zone. The timestamps that appear for you in XperienCentral will be based on the difference between the time zone that the server on which XperienCentral is installed and running and the time zone you have selected.

Notification Settings

Notifications allow you to monitor the entire lifecycle of content items. When you subscribe to one or more notifications with respect to a lifecycle change to an item, whenever a change occurs or is going to occur within a specified time period anywhere in the channel, an alert is sent to you. The notification that a specific lifecycle change has occurred or will occur anywhere on the website is triggered whenever the workflow of a content item is modified or will soon occur. When you subscribe to a specific notification type, you receive an e-mail notification regardless of who the user is who performed the action, including yourself. The name of the content item in the e-mail message is a link which you can click to navigate directly to the content item within the XperienCentral Workspace.

You can choose from the following notifications:


Notification typeDescription
Workflow state change notificationThe workflow state change notification allows you to monitor the workflow state of content items. When you subscribe to workflow state change notifications, you will receive an e-mail notification when a workflow state change is made to any content item anywhere on the website. The specifics of the workflow state change that occurred is not detailed in the e-mail notification, you are simply notified that a change has occurred.

The options are "Never", "Immediately", "Daily" or "Weekly". For "Daily" and "Weekly", the time of day that the e-mail is sent is based on when this setting is configured. For example, if you change this setting at 3:00 p.m., you will receive the notification at 3:00 p.m. (according to the frequency you select).
Expiration date notificationThe expiration date notification allows you to monitor which content items are about to expire. The options are "Never", "Daily", and "Weekly". For "Daily" and "Weekly", the time of day that the e-mail is sent is based on when this setting is configured. For example, if you change this setting at 3:00 p.m., you will receive the notification at 3:00 p.m. (according to the frequency you select).

When the number of days before the item is set to expire is reached, an e-mail notification will be sent to you that lists the item(s) and the date on which they will expire. To set the number of days before the expiration an e-mail is sent, see Notification Framework.
Retention period notificationThe retention period notification allows you to monitor content items whose content has not changed for a specified number of days. These are referred to as 'retained items'. Using the retention period notification you can ensure that content on your website remains current and up to date. When the content of an item remains unchanged for the specified number of days, an e-mail notification will be sent to you that lists the item(s) and the number of days they have remained unchanged.

The options are "Never", "Daily" and "Weekly". For "Daily", the e-mail will be sent every day at 02:00. For "Weekly", the day and time that the e-mail is sent is based on when this setting is configured. For example, if you change this setting on a Monday a 3:00 p.m., you will receive the notification every Monday at 3:00 p.m.

When the content item has remained unchanged for the specified number of days, an e-mail notification will be sent to you that lists the item(s) and the date on which they were last modified. To set the number of retention days, see Notification Framework.
Deletion notificationThe deletion notification allows you to monitor content items that have been deleted. The options are "Never", "Immediately", "Daily" and "Weekly". For "Daily", the e-mail will be sent every day at 02:00. For "Weekly", the day and time that the e-mail is sent is based on when this setting is configured. For example, if you change this setting on a Monday a 3:00 p.m., you will receive the notification every Monday at 3:00 p.m.
