User Preferences


The User Preferences screen is available to everyone that has access to TES. Users can change their password and set their default login page for TES in the User Preferences feature.
  • Point to Manage.
  • Select User Preferences.



  • Users can use the CHANGE MY PASSWORD section to change their password.


  • The TES Administrator should encourage all Users to change their password to something they can remember.

  • Enter a password and the re-enter it a second time to confirm it. Then click the Submit button.

  • The password will be changed, and the user will be logged out. They can then log back in with the new password.


  • The other feature that is available in the User Preferences feature is the ability to select your TES homepage – called SET MY HOME PAGE. This allows users to select a default homepage that will display immediately upon logging in. The options that are available are dependent upon the User’s assigned User Rights. Users with access to TES but with no User Rights assigned will have only two (2) options to choose from. At the other end of the spectrum, Users with every User Right assigned will have sixteen (16) different choices. The Rights assigned determine the pages that are available.


  • If a User that has defined a default homepage that is dependent upon a particular User Right, and the User Right is removed, they will be redirected to the User Preferences page and prompted to select a new homepage.

    • A specialized Case: The Faculty Evaluator
      Are you using the Evaluation Tracker Workflow? Do you have staff that are exclusively Evaluators?


    • If so, they can set the My Evaluations page as their default home page so that they open TES directly in their pending evaluations queue! What could be simpler than that?
