The Configuration menu item within General Admin is the core to all the setup items for your Publishing business. As such, when your account was created, a number of these will have been setup for you already. These are options that you can change, however care should be taken to ensure that you do not create major issues within your system.
Clicking on General Admin > Configuration will bring up the following screen:
From here you are able to manage the configurations for the business that you are controlling with Stison.
Even if the option is provided for you, you should never need to click on Create New.
Clicking on your Organisation Name will open up a new window that has the following tabs. (Details on each of these can be seen by clicking on the headings below).
This section allows you to customise various defaults like your preferred measurements format, preferred distributor, preferred base currency etc.
This area should never require any change from you, however there may be times when Stison support staff ask you to review this area.
Here you can upload your logo and manage areas related to the management of your web module. This area will only be of great relevance if you use Stison's Web Management Software.
Payment & Distribution
This area is again linked to Stison's Web Management Software and enables you to configure payment gateways and distribution paths.
For users of Stison's Royalty Management Module, this area will enable you to customise aspects of your Royalties install. There is more documentation available for Royalties Configuration.
If you use Stison's Production Management module, you may want to configure the Organisation's options. There is more documentation available for Production Configuration.
With Stison's Web Module comes the ability to manage individual Micro Sites and the look and feel of their templates. This section allows you to change colour schemes and fonts.
Uploading CSS for the look and feel of websites can be done here. This will again require use of Stison's Web Management module.
