This page was updated with version 9.1. 

My Preferences allows the user to update the login password and to set preferences (some of which can overwrite defaults set in Page Builder or by the system) based on the needs of the user.  This page is tab driven and the section name for each tab explains where the changes will occur.  

The top of the page contains a link to "Click Here to Change Password".  Clicking on this link allows the user to enter a new password which will be used going forward.  Passwords can contain letters, numbers, or special characters up to 15 characters in length, but it CANNOT be blank (Note: Passwords also depend on certain security settings determined by the Administrator).

Next to this link is a "Save Changes" button.  This button saves changes for the whole page and does not need to be pressed after each change to each tab.
