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.


  • Enter a password and the re-enter it a second time to confirm it.

  • Click the affirmation of employment and the agreement to Terms of Use checkboxes and 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 home page – called SET MY HOME PAGE. This allows users to select a default landing page 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 four (4) pages to choose from. At the other end of the spectrum, Users with every User Right assigned will have eighteen (18) different choices. The Rights assigned determine the pages that are available.


  • If a User that has defined a default home page 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 home page.

    • 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?
