Options in Informit are set at three levels—System default, Organisation and User.

  • System defaults are preset for all Informit options. Preset options are deemed those suitable for most organisations. System default options can be changed at the administrator level.
  • Organisation preferences can be set by your organisation’s nominated administrator to suit local needs.
  • User preferences can be changed during an Informit session, usually by selecting from a dropdown menu. User options revert to the organisation default when the user logs out.

Statistical reports can now be generated at any time of the day or night.

These details will appear in the bottom right-hand corner of the Search screen. To request changes to these details, contact your organisation’s nominated administrator.
