Individual User Settings
Ovation LIMS users have “roles” and “permissions” that are set up by your System Administrator. Roles and permissions control what information and work you can see and edit in Ovation LIMS. For more information, talk to your Ovation LIMS Admin or check out the knowledge base article on the Roles and Permissions Matrix.
Ovation LIMS has a “User Settings” feature that can be set up by each user allowing you to:
- Manage your user profile
- Personalize your system email notifications
- Reset your password
- Enable two-step verification
