How can we help?

Home > iThenticate > iThenticate User Guide > Settings


To view your account settings, select the Settings tab.



From here you will be able to make changes to the general settings of your account, and changes to document settings.


General Settings

In the general settings options, you will be able to set your home folder. This is the folder that will open by default when you log into iThenticate. Select the folder you would like to be your home folder from the Home Folder drop-down menu.



The Number of documents to show drop-down allows you to choose how many uploaded documents are lists in your folders before a new page is created. 


You can select what is displayed after you upload a document to iThenticate. The two options available are Display the upload folder, which will take you to the folder you have just uploaded to, allowing you to see your uploaded document processing. Or Upload another document, which will return you to the upload form. Select the checkbox next to your choice.



You can also select the time zone and language that you would like your account to use. Changing your language will change the language of your user interface, so please select carefully.



To update your settings, select Update Settings.

Document Settings

The documents setting tab will allow you to change the default way iThenticate sorts your uploaded documents. You can choose to sort your documents by processed date, title, similarity score and author. Select your preferred option from the drop-down.



You can also choose the what color is assigned to the similarity score based on the percentage of similarity.



All similarity scores above the percentage you set will appear in the folder in blue, all those beneath the percentage will appear in grey.



This is a purely aesthetic option, allowing you to flag potentially troubling similarity percentages. For more information on how to interpret this score, please see the Interpreting the Similarity Report section in this guide.


Select Update Settings to update your document settings.
