Customizing the user interface

The user interface of BSCW may be customized in many different ways concerning pre­sen­ta­tion as well as functionality. For a number of system functions you may adapt BSCW to spec­if­ic requirements of the tasks at hand, your personal work style and your proficiency in using BSCW.

BSCW automatically adapts to your browser’s capa­bi­lities with regard to the processing of JavaScript and style sheets and to your browser’s setting of the pre­ferred user language.

You adapt BSCW by setting your personal preferences and choosing your viewing options. Also, you may choose to use additional features for file upload or select a specific user inter­face language.

By disabling JavaScript, e.g., you may adapt BSCW in an ad-hoc fashion to a session using a low bandwidth con­nection while travelling.
