My Preferences is where you manage all your customization settings. You can access My Preferences via the Action Menu (three dots) that appears next to your name/avatar image in the Main Navigation.





In My Preferences you have the ability to set the following:

Email Client

How the Contributor would like to send emails from Jostle.

What’s Jostling

If the Contributor wants to receive our newsletter that highlights significant new features and changes.


Contributors can set their preferred language from these available options: English, French, Japanese, German, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Danish, Polish, Hebrew, and Arabic.

Time Zone

Contributors can set their timezone. The timezone by default will be the browser’s setting.

Date Format

Contributors can set how the date is displayed throughout the platform.

Time Format

Contributors can choose between a 12-hour clock or 24-hour clock.

Default View

Contributors can set the default view that their intranet opens to. Also, they can navigate back to that view by clicking their organization’s logo.

Contributors can manage the notifications* sent from News, Events, Discussions, Library, and Classifieds.

*certain email notifications cannot be disabled.

Contributors can change their password and (if applicable) reset their Multi-factor Authentication settings (Jostle credentials only).


Once your preferences have all been set, click the Save button at the bottom of the screen or the Save link at the top of the screen.
