You can easily customise the look and feel of ECHO for individuals or groups on their behalf and here we show you how!
For each person using ECHO there are a variety of preferences recorded including:
Those new to ECHO will receive the default preferences however if you have a new module added you may wish to add this to the module icons for a particular group. Likewise you may wish to remove a widget for someone or apply a new colour scheme for everyone.
This can be achieved through the Look & Feel Administration option found (see below) on your Administration page.
There are various scenarios for changing the look and feel which are managed through the options shown in the screenshot below.
To explain how you use this feature it is easier to demonstrate how different scenarios would be dealt with.
All new visitors to ECHO will have these preferences set for them.
If you have a module you wish to make available then you can add this to the list for a chosen group as follows:
Likewise if you want to remove a module, check the Del box for the module and repeat steps 2-4 above.
Changes can either be merged with existing preferences (so a widget is added for the selected group or individual) or they can reset. If the "Reset to these settings" option is chosen any existing preferences will be replaced with whatever has been chosen so this option should be used with care.
If you have any doubts about using this feature or are using it for the first time, set the preferences for yourself before making changes to groups and remember you need to come out of and then go back into ECHO to get the changed settings.
