Insightly's System Settings

Insightly administrators will get very familiar with the System Settings page. This is where you'll add users, turn account features off and on, configure account security, and customize lists, fields, and pages. These are settings that affect all the users on your account.

To view the System Settings page, click the profile menu and select System Settings. Your settings are listed on the left, with a search field above them.
