  1. Click on your status under your name. 
  1. Select one of the Status options

  1. Click on the 'Preferences' button. 
  1. Click on the 'Working From Status' button on the left side bar.
Working from Status
In this screen the administrator can select a few options in regards to the user's status, for example:

  1. Reset status automatically at midnight for all people and select the Default Status;
  1. Prompt user to confirm status in the web or mobile app each day; 
  1. Send reminder email to confirm status if no confirmed in app;
  1. Hide status.

Working From Status Settings
Administrators have the option to force all statuses to expire each evening at midnight. If this occurs, each user's status will be set to a predetermined default status as described above. This will not affect statuses that currently have an Expiry Date set until that date has occurred.

 A message can also be set that allows a user to communicate further information about their status. This message will appear underneath the user's status in their User Profile.
