The Hudu admin area is accessible ONLY to admins and super admin users within your organization.

The General tab of the Hudu admin area allows for customization of your company's basic information; as well as serves as the area to set up and configure app-based two-factor authentication and/or SAML SSO for your Hudu environment.
In this article, we’ll discuss the options and abilities that the General tab in your Hudu admin area provides. These include:
  • Configuration of basic company information.
  • Authentication/Security configuration.



Updating Basic Information

Upon setting up or receiving your Hudu instance information, you’ll need to provide your business’s name. By navigating to the Hudu admin General tab, you’ll be able to change and update:
  • Your companies’ Business Name.
  • How your documentation is structured.
    • Most information stored within Hudu would be organized into what we call a “space”. Spaces, by default, are called companies within Hudu; but can be changed/updated to reflect your business's needs.
    • Changing how you structure your documentation is purely cosmetic.
    • Hudu provides the options to structure your documentation by:
      • Companies.
      • Clients.
      • Partners.
      • Divisions.
      • Locations.
      • Groups.
      • Customers.
      • Properties
      • Projects.
      • Schools.
      • Hospitals.
  • Start of Week.
    • Choose either Sunday or Monday as the start of the week for your business.
  • Default Time Zone.
    • Choose your business’s default time zone.
      • Each user has the ability to select which time zone they’d like to use. Visit User settings for additional information.
