Preferences:

The user can set preferences and options in the application that will be set until they are changed. In the browser version of the application, the user's name is displayed at the top right corner with a drop-down button to its right. Clicking on this button will display a list of items that the user can set. On the iPad version of the application, in the Home screen, tapping on the Settings item will display the preferences list. In this section a user can subscribe to event notifications and set preferences.
