Settings Page

The Settings Page allows you to make changes to your regional settings, feed subscriptions, password, and third-party credentials. To access your Settings page, click your user display name in the top-right corner of Tempo and select Settings.

Regional Settings

The Regional view allows you to change your regional settings from the default system settings, including language, time zone, and calendar type, unless your administrator specifies an override, in which case you will not be able to customize your settings.

To set your regional preferences, select the Regional view and modify the settings via the available dropdowns. Click "Save Changes" to have your changes take effect.

Feed Subscriptions

Topic-specific feeds are created by your System Administrator. When a feed entry is created for a specific feed, such as a process milestone or process completion event, only users subscribed to that feed will see it in their News feed.

To see all available feeds you can subscribe to, select the News view on the Settings page.

If a feed displays a checkmark or person icon next to it, then you are already subscribed to it.


To subscribe to a feed, click either the All or Personalized link below the feed name.

Clicking All subscribes you to all events added to that feed. A checkmark indicates you have subscribed to All.

Clicking Personalized subscribes you to only events added to that feed and targeted specifically to a group in which you're a member. Your system administrator needs to configure this option. Check with them before enabling it. A person icon indicates you have subscribed to Personalized.


To unsubscribe from a feed, click the Unsubscribe link below the feed name. Once you unsubscribe, you will no longer see events in your News feed from that specific feed.

You can also unsubscribe from a feed from the News feed directly by resting your pointer on an event and clicking the Unsubscribe button that appears.


On the Settings page, you might also see a view called Password. This view displays if your site uses Appian to authenticate its passwords.

To change your password, select this view and fill out the fields for your old password, new password, and your new password again to confirm it. Any requirements your password must follow will display under the New Password field. You must meet this criteria to complete the change.

Click Change Password to verify the new password. Once it submits, your new password takes effect.

Third-Party Credentials

The Third-Party Credentials view provides a list of other software systems which have been integrated with Appian by a system administrator. Click on the name of one of the systems to provide your personal credentials for that system. When Appian calls that system on your behalf, it will authenticate using the credentials you provide.

The credentials you provide here are encrypted and stored securely in Appian. The credentials can only be decrypted and used when you are logged in and using Appian.

Each system in the list will display the word Configured or a non-sensitive portion of your credentials, such as your username, if credentials have been configured for that system. Otherwise, the system will be listed as Not Configured.

You should provide credentials for each of the systems listed in this view if you have a login to that system. That way, Appian will succeed when attempting to perform an action on that system on your behalf.

To permanently remove a set of credentials so that they are no longer stored in Appian, click the Forget My Credentials button when viewing the credentials for a configured system.
