Common Settings

In the Administration module in the Configuration tab, there is a sub tab for "Common Settings." These settings are primarily used for global settings throughout the Aluvii software. The below sections and settings are explained: 

  • Common Configuration
    • Pic monkey API Key: This is the key used in the integrated image editor called PicMonkey. it's used for basic photo editing when uploading images to Aluvii. 
    • Email mode: Test mode will send any emails generated from Aluvii to the emails listed in the QA email field. Live mode is what you'll use when ready to go live with Aluvii. It will send live emails to the actual email address. 
    • Password Reset Link Expiry Time: This is the duration of time that emailed password reset links will expire. 
    • Max Login Attempts: This is the max number of times a guest can attempt to login to customer-facing portals before the account gets deactivated. Employees can reactivate guest accounts from their account.
    • Grid Default Page Size: Through Aluvii there are many grids containing records. This field sets the default number of records showing in the grids. 
    • Grid Page Size: Grids in Aluvii can display more records per page. This field can set the display options. Separate the numbers with commas to add more. 
    • Default Time Zone: This is the default time zone that will be used through Aluvii when displaying time stamps.
    • Internal Language: Set the default language system wide. The language can be toggled per user by using the country flag icon in the top right, but this setting will set the default. 
    • Localization: This will set currency symbols, date/time formats, etc, for the given region/country. 
    • Default Country: Wherever a country field is selected for creating accounts, this will be the default field.
