Client options are general settings that affect all clients who log in to Web Help Desk. Review these options and update them as needed.

  1. In the toolbar, click Setup.
  2. Choose Clients > Options.
  3. If you want to allow clients to create accounts from the client interface, change the Client Can Create Account setting.

    If you allow clients to create accounts, SolarWinds recommends selecting Only if the client's email matches an Accepted Domain. Specify the accepted domains below.
