After joining your organization's Cmd environment, there are several account setup tasks for you to complete:


Setting up your account as a global admin, admin, manager, or viewer

  1. Update your email settings:
    By default, Cmd sends you several types of emails about your user account and unresolved alerts — see Reviewing/modifying your email settings.
  2. Set up 2-factor authentication:
    For security, set up 2FA — see Setting up 2-factor authentication.
  3. Customize your home page:
    If you plan to review trigger alerts on the Cmd dashboard, you may wish to change how that information is displayed — see Customizing your homepage.
  4. Configure your terminal display:
    To choose the level of detail and visual elements present within the terminal displays included in your reports — see Configuring your terminal display.
  5. Update your timezone:
    By default, your timezone will be set to UTC, but you can update this easily — see Updating your timezone.


Setting up your account as a server operator

  1. Set up 2-factor authentication:
    In order to ensure your account remains secure, we highly recommend setting up at least one form of 2-factor authentication — see Setting up 2-factor authentication.
  2. Update your timezone:
    By default, your timezone will be set to UTC, but you can update this easily — see Updating your timezone.
