My Settings


The "My Settings" section is where each user can configure their personal Betterworks account:


Here, you can:

  • Add your phone number
  • Add a blurb
  • Add a profile picture
  • Update your password
    • Note: If your organization is using Single Sign-On (SSO), you will not be able to update your password through Betterworks. Instead, you'll likely need to loop in a member of your organization's IT Team.
  • Change your starting page
  • Change the timezone
  • Change the language 
  • Access the Preview environment
  • Set notifications


One of the most important features here is the notifications. You can decide which notifications you'd like to receive via email. If you administrator has enabled Slack and/or Microsoft Teams, you'll have the option to select push notifications to those applications as well.

Note: If your administrator has made certain notifications mandatory, the checkboxes will be grayed out.
