A Box Profile is a type of custom “at-a-glance” view designed by EPX administrators to display particular work item data on the Inbox, Sentbox or Draftbox pages in TaskManager. If you have been given access to Box Profiles in addition to the system default Box Profile, you can change your Box Profile settings so that one of the custom Box Profiles is displayed as the default Box Profile, instead of having the generic system Box Profile as the default. Additionally, you can have the Work Item Summary page, instead of the Inbox page, appear as the default page when you begin a new TaskManager session. To modify your Box Profile preferences:

  1. In the navigation pane, expand the Preferences menu and then click Box Profile to open the Default Inbox Profile page.

  2. To select one of your available Box Profiles as the default, select the Default option next to the desired profile name.

  3. If you want to show the Work Item Summary page as the default first page instead of the Inbox page, select the Display summary as first page checkbox (see screen shot below).

  1. When you have finished configuring your Box Profile settings, click OK.

Note: Same steps apply when you modify your Box Profile settings in your Sentbox or Draftbox pages.
