Contextual Help - Account Information

The Account Information window displays all the data about your company and is mainly used to see the time zone, week management and corporate contact information.

This window has 2 parts: the title bar and the company information table.

  • The title bar tells you where you are in AceProject. At the end of the title bar you will find a link to contextual help. 
  • The Account Information table displays all the data about your company. Information is organized in four groups: Account, Preferences, Contact, and Company Address.
    • This window is available in read-only mode only. You cannot make changes to it.
    • The "Account group" contains basic account information.
      • While the company name is displayed in the top-right corner of your screen, the company login name is used to connect to AceProject. 
      • Limitations keep you up-to-date on the number of projects, users, tasks, time sheets and file attachments allowed in your account.
    • The Preferences group contains time management information.
      • The "Time Zone" field is used to know where your company is located in order to display correct date references.
      • The date format displayed in this group is the default for your company. You can change your own date format in your preferences. Date formats also include whether to use periods or commas in decimal numbers.
      • The "Week Management" field specified when a week starts and ends, for management purposes.
    • The information in the Contact group contains the name and contact information of the person to contact if there is a problem.

    • The "Company Address" group usually contains information about your corporate headquarters.
    • Only administrators may make changes to this page.


What is the difference between "Company Login Name" and "Company Name"?
The company login name is used to log in to AceProject. It usually does not contain spaces. The name of your company is used for information purposes only (you will see your company name in the top right corner of your window). 

What is the use of "Time Zone"?
The "Time Zone" field is used to know where your company is located in order to display your local time. Our Internet server saves your data in the following format: GMT -5 Eastern Time. Choose your time zone to reflect your geographical location. 

What is "Week Management"
The Week Management field offers you the possibility of managing your time sheets according to your preferences: whether your week starts on Saturday, Sunday or Monday. This way, you will avoid time management conflicts with your company's internal time-tracking procedures. You cannot change the Week Management field if you have existing time sheets. To change your Week Management, delete your time sheets first.

How do I modify Account Information?
This page cannot be modified. The account administrator can edit this information from the "Administration" section.
