User preferences apply to a specific Metasys system user. User preferences define how the information is displayed in the user interface, and do not affect the operation for other users of the system. The colors and marker styles of a trend display are examples of user preferences.
Beginning at SCT Release 11.0 and later, user preferences and object lists are included in uploads and downloads.
At Release 8.0 or later, user preferences (and object lists) that are created on the Metasys server are saved in the archive database by SCT. They are part of the archive upload/download process, so you no longer need to save these xml files before an upgrade. This feature is dependent on the Metasys server version, and is not applicable for releases earlier than Release 8.0.
To synchronize user preferences within a site or to reuse the user preferences on another site, refer to the Configuring and Maintaining Preferences appendix of the ADS/ADX Commissioning Guide (LIT-1201645) or the NAE Commissioning Guide (LIT-1201519).
