System settings will apply to the Mobileezy software across all users and are configured under Setup > System Settings.  When you first open the System Setting tab, it will open in Basic Settings mode.  Settings in this mode will affect the behaviour of the software, but are more user friendly than those in the Advanced Settings mode.

Most system settings are 'Set and Forget', that is you will configure them once and then leave them alone!
