Setting up LibreHealth EHR using Global settings

Global settings, as the name suggests, are the general settings applicable to different services offered by LibreHealth EHR. These settings are superficial, mainly related to the appearance, enabling or disabling certain functionalities and some service-specific settings. They can be found at Administration → Globals.

In the global settings page, click on each tab to see a list of relevant settings on the left of the screen. Hover on each setting for a brief description.

Click 'Save' at the top of each tab's display when finished with that tab.

This Globals wiki page was contributed by Sahithi Rampalli under the guidance of Harley Tuck. This page describes the global settings under each tab, which are intended for various purposes.
