Various settings are available to intranet Admins under the Admin link, top right, which is only accessible to users with elevated rights.
Obviously there are many decisions about setup when your intranet is being built or subsequently as its being used. Front-end type settings are explained in the How-To's section of the intranet; learn more in the Admin Overview article. Back-end settings are described below.
The remainder of the Setup tab has details of your specific intranet installation, as shown in the image below.
1. Product Updates - If you're active on Maintenance with us, this is where you'll find links to the latest Patches and Upgrades. Clicking on Manual Upload? gives the option of manually updating hotfixes or patches.

System Email Address
The system email address is the email address used to send all email outbound that is not set to send as the submitting user.
Examples of notifications that use this email address:
- Support Desk ticket notifications
- Formbuilder workflow notifications (Exception is the Send Notification stage which can use the submitting user’s email address instead of the system email)
- Subscription alerts (new content, updates, etc.)
- Workflow within apps (Documents, Company News, Knowledgebase, etc)
This address is configured in the Admin area, on the Setup tab under Email Options. This address can be the email address of the admin on the site, but is frequently something similar to firstname.lastname@example.org.
