Before we jump onto the audio-video tutorial, lets do some Q&A
Question:- Do I need to set any profile options so that I can create sharable user level personalizations?
Answer:- Yes. You need to enable personalizations via profile option â€œPersonalize Self%Service%Def%â€
Question:- Can multiple users share this personalization?
Answer:- Yes. Infact, if you do this personalization at site level, then all the users having access to this page
will see your custom folders. In case you wish to restrict the access to these changes to a set of users, then,
do this personalization at either responsibility or function or organization level.
Question:- Can this Administrator create multiple personalizations against the same region?
Answer:- Indeed this is possible. In this case, end users can pick one of the existing user-personalizations via a dropdown list.

Hence, the business benefit is time saving, whereby the user does not have to re-enter their favourite query criteria each time.
Question:- How many Shared Folders can I create against a region?
Answer:- There is no such limit, you can create as many meaningful folders as you wish.

Also, you will notice that if both â€œuser levelâ€ and â€œadmin-level-user personalizationâ€ exists against a region, then
all of these will be visible to the end user.
