Authoring - About the favorites

The ‘Favorites’ is a set of attributes to set up a 'personal touch' for a user or a group of users.

The favorites in the user account

By default people can change their favorites in their profile. But you can prevent this by deselecting one or more of the ‘Changeable’ options behind the ‘Browse’ buttons (the red rectangle in the previous image).

You can also set the favorites in the user group. If a favorite is not specified in one or more of the user accounts, then the favorite of the user group is used.

The favorites in the user group

Only the administrator can change the favorites of a user group.
