Maintaining User Defaults and Options 

Both system administrators and individual users can maintain user data.

The system administrator can maintain all data (see Creating and Maintaining User Master Records).

Users can maintain the following user data: Constants, Addresses and Parameters.

The following sections summarize the user options which you can define.

User Address

The user address data fields are self-explanatory.

Only the system administrator can maintain company addresses.

A time zone is assigned to each company address. User-specific time zones can overlap company time zones (see Defaults above).


User parameters supply defaults to R/3 fields. If a field is indicated, the system automatically fills in the default value. Depending on the field definition, the entry can also be replaced with a value entered by the user.

The two input fields on the parameter maintenance screen are described briefly below. Further information is available by choosing F1 .
