Default Metadata Group

Default search results type
The default search result view is used whenever you do a new search session. If you are searching and you change it during searching then it will start using that view until you change it again. This is not used for the last 10 search results which is always the grid view.

The metadata fields that are used to sort your items upon search.
Firstname
Your first name.
Lastname
Your last name.
Password

This field allows you to update your password in the system. If left blank when you are updating your settings then it won’t update your password.

Please fill in the password confirmation field with the same password. Upon clicking submit your password will change.

Organisation
Optional field showing which organization you are registered to.
Groups
Shows the groups that you as a user are in. To change please contact your Administrator as only administrators can change the groups you are a member of.
Language
This is an optional add-on. If enabled it allows you to enter the language of your choice, and will also change the formatting of dates, numbers and other details to that of your language and regional preference.

For instance when it is enabled you can change between British and American English, and English will be used as the language but the formatting of dates will change to meet the normal preference of the country.
