When a user wishes to Edit an existing System Configuration Setting, navigate to Settings/ System Configuration Settings.
From the initial display of System Configuration Settings, a user with appropriate permission can modify or Edit an existing setting by scrolling through the existing settings to locate the desired setting to modify. The setting values are opened for editing, however, the Name should not be modified. If the Name is incorrect or needs to be removed select the Delete button to the far right. If the Value of a name needs to modified, make the change by overtyping the existing value. Once all of the changes have been made, select the Save button at the bottom and the changes will be saved to the database. A message is presented to the user at the top to signify whether or not the change was successful or if there were any errors.
