Amending your user preferences

Click the user info link to open the user profile options. The user information area is separated into two sections: personal information and user preferences.

The user preferences section of a user profile affects how information within the profile account is presented and sets defaults for commonly used functions. User preferences include:

  • default user type – determines the type of user homepage seen on login - administrator, instructor, or student; change user type is done by using the user type button.
  • default submission type – select a default submission type: file upload, bulk upload, or cut and paste
  • items per page – select the number of items you would like displayed per page
  • show page info – toggles the info messages at the top of each page on and off
  • send me e-mail updates – choose yes to receive e-mail updates from Turnitin
  • use homepage link – choose yes to create a homepage link; enter a name for the link and the URL in the field below; an extra tab will now appear within all class homepages which links to an external site for you to view
