    Configuring Institution Settings

    To configure Esploro, you must have the Configuration Manager role.

    Configuring Default Researcher Settings

    You can configure the default values for researcher notifications for all new researchers. In addition, you can configure the default language for all new researchers. See Default Publication Language and Researcher Notifications in Managing Researchers to modify the values for an individual researcher.

    You configure both of these on the Default Researcher Settings page (Configuration Menu > Research > Institution Settings > Default Research Settings).
