Customize Systems

Overview

In the Profile wizard, Step 3 is Customize Systems.

In this step, you can set preferences for SuperOffice and your calendar system (Exchange, Google (Gmail/ G Suite) or Microsoft 365).

We have set up the profile already with the most common settings. They are perfect for most of the users. But if you feel like you need total control, this is the place to customize them. If you get that feeling later, don’t worry. You can change them any time you like.
