Here, you can edit the name and e-mail address of your own user account. Simply update the details and confirm.

Here you can set automatic forwarding rules for a respondent in case they are going to be unavailable for a certain period of time. This would ensure that any escalation policies that consist of the user need not be changed back and forth depending upon their absence.

To create a notification rule, click on the Create Notification Rule button. Fill in the number of minutes to wait for and the channel for notification and confirm.
