My Settings

A Kahua profile establishes how a user appears in the Contacts app, as well as in the broader Kahua Community. Kahua users from other companies can see contact records in the Community and add them as a Contact in their list of People to begin collaboration.


Click the person icon in the upper right corner of your screen (or if you’ve set a picture, select your image) and select My Settings from the drop-down menu to bring up the current user account.


There are up to seven tabs with available settings on the My Settings action bar, depending on the selections made by your domain administrator:

Out of Office


Your tasks can be automatically delegated to another user while you are out of the office. You can select a beginning and end date for task delegation to occur. All newly received tasks during this time frame will be delegated, existing tasks will not. All delegated tasks will remain delegated when the delegation period ends or the delegation is manually disabled.


To set up task delegation while you are out of the office, complete the following steps:

  1. Select the Automatically delegate tasks during the out of office period check box. 
  2. Enter the From and To dates for the Out of Office period. 
  3. Select the user who will act on your behalf. This user must be a member of your primary domain. 
  4. Select Notify originator that task was delegated to have a message sent to the originator of the task letting them know that the task was delegated and enter text to be included in that message. 

Tasks cannot be re-delegated. If a user is the recipient of delegated tasks and then turns on task delegation for themselves, delegated tasks that they receive will not be delegated to their selected recipient of delegated tasks.


Approval tasks will not be delegated unless the Enable Approval Task Delegation option is enabled in the Domain Settings app. For more information, refer to Domain Settings.
