The General Mobile Settings menu allows you to choose the arrangement of the menu items in Elexio Mobile. Select an item from the list and use the "Move Up" or "Move Down" arrows to re-position the menu item.

This window also indicates which security role may view each menu option. You can modify the viewing privileges for your security roles in the security roles menu. If you don't want a menu item to show, just remove it as a viewed option for a given  role in security settings.

Use the Enable Express Check-in checkbox to toggle the Express Check-in feature on and off.
