- Details of school name, address, contact information, weekend, etc.
- Courses run by the school/institution

Clicking on Settings in the main menu will bring up the screen shown below:
By default, the General Settings page is open. To enter the School name etc. you should click on 'School'. Three options become visible and the 'Contact Details' tab is now open. Details such as Email address, telephone number, a mobile number and the school address are to be entered here.
Another tab, namely 'Other Settings' is where you can enter the School name, country, time zone, currency, school logo and select the weekend days. This is where you must attach the school logo. There is also an option here to choose whether students should be given access to the Lesson Plans.
The third tab is named Accounting and it is here that you can choose the invoice and receipt prefixes and the starting numbers for these documents that will be generated in the Fees and Accounting area.
Once these details are entered, you must click on the 'Save Changes' button to record the data.
