Managing User Options in the EMS Campus Planning Interface

When your EMS administrator configures your user account, a password is set for your account. If you want, you can change your own password for the EMS Campus Planning Interface. Also, your EMS Administrator might have configured custom help text that is displayed on pages in the EMS Campus Planning Interface. You can turn off the display of this help text.

You can change your own password for the EMS Campus Planning Interface. You can also set the options for the Academic Book, and you can turn on or off any custom help text that is displayed on pages in the EMS Campus Planning Interface.

On the EMS Campus Planning Interface menu bar, click Manage User Options. The Manage User Options page opens. The Password Options tab is the active tab.
