By clicking on the paper & pen icon, next to the name of the account to be edited, a window opens from which various general account settings can be edited.

Colour settings

The Edit account colours and style section is used to edit the colour settings for an account and add a logo to the opening page of the Tourist Barometer. Read Upload a landing page logo for more information and the logo image requirements.


Settings for graphs and modules

In this section of the screen, users can edit the settings for the modules linked to this account. For more information, see: Edit existing modules.


Primary modules and sub-modules

A few modules in the Barometer are layered. The composite module 'Hotel bednights' and 'Hotel arrivals' is an example of this. It’s a submodule of 'Hotels' which is displayed in the menu on the left-hand side. Therefore, when entering 'Hotel bednights' and 'Hotel arrivals' it is necessary to also activate the ‘Hotels’ module so it becomes visible on the barometer.


Saving data

Click the ‘save’ button at the bottom of the page after editing the various graph and/or module settings.
