The ability to set and change system settings is a permission that should be granted only to those who have an in-depth knowledge of Conga Contracts.

A user with the System Settings Admin permission defines basic and advanced system settings, such as the numbering format for Company and Contract Profiles, the parameters for password use, the rules for sending and receiving email messages, and the procedures for integrating third party applications that work in conjunction with Conga Contracts, such as Salesforce. The System Settings Admin can also control the amount and type of information that displays in each type of email message sent from the program, as well as the portlets that display in the Dashboard when a new user logs in to Conga Contracts for the first time.

Once the customer is running the most recent version of the software on their server, they must re-import the data they exported to re-populate their database.
