As a user that is defined as an admin by the corresponding role, you can hit the settings button by clicking on your user profile name on the top right corner.
Within the settings panel, you can define several settings: Server, Password, License, Authentication, Messages, Log and Server Environment.
In addition to the settings, you can also send an error report, change the language (German or English) or the design (light or dark) to set or unset the dark mode. You can also view the version info of your Simplifier instance or log out.
The Server settings control your session. At the subtitle Authentication token, you can set the lifetime of the authentication token and its checking interval.
If you set the authentication token to active, the checking interval to 10 seconds and the maximum lifetime of the authentication token to 3600 seconds, that means that every 10 seconds it will be checked if you are inactive. If you are inactive for about 3600 seconds, you will be automatically logged out.

|The Message settings allow you to store system messages, which are transmitted to all logged-in users, e.g. if you want to inform them about maintenance work.|
With corresponding rights (assigned role “System Messages”), you can add a validity date. The messages can be written in HTML. As soon as a message is stored, it is pushed to all user. A user who logs in later receive the message as well. The message is displayed as an overlay and must be closed manually.
