User Account Settings

A Kahua profile establishes how a user appears in the Contacts App, as well as in the broader Kahua Community. Kahua users from other companies can see contact records in the Community and add them as a Contact in their list of People to begin collaboration.

Click the person icon in the upper right corner of your screen (or if you’ve set a picture, select your image) and select My Settings from the drop-down menu to bring up the current user account. 

There are five tabs with available settings on the My Settings Action bar: 

General – Application settings such as notification preferences, user time zone and language preferences, display of the project number in partition navigation, and display of account details in window can be adjusted. 

Profiles – Allows for users to update their personal metadata. Fill out the Details section completely, especially if you are part of an approval workflow. Fill out other information, including uploading a photo, as needed by the organization. 

Note: The associated email address can only be changed by contacting Support@Kahua.com

Password – A user can change their account password at any time, adhering to minimum requirements that can be set by your Domain Administrator in Domain Settings. Kahua’s default requirements are that the password must contain at least: eight characters total; one lowercase character; one number; one uppercase character; and cannot be the same as the username.

Signature – Upload a signature image and set how a signature block appears. Check for corporate standards on the signature block. In this section, the user assigns a PIN used any time a signature is requested by the system. This signature may be utilized in response to approval tasks or in creation of certain communications. 

Local Files – Enables users to sync select folders or files to their local drive for easy access and edit in the native application; Kahua designates and creates a path (on local drive, in users folder) upon activation. 

Offline – Enables offline access to specific applications, specifically Daily Reports, Punch Lists, and RFIs if enabled.
