Intacct
My Start Page in My Preferences

Intacct provides a large amount of flexibility from the end-user standpoint in terms of the user interface.  One thing that may be useful is the ability to tell Intacct where you’d like to start after you login.
 
For example, you may be an Accounts Payable person that spends the majority of your day managing vendors, entering bills and printing checks.  A convenient place to start, therefore, would be the Accounts Payable module.
 
By going to your My Preferences area you can tell Intacct which area of the system you’d like to start in after login by using a simple drop-down.
 
Hover over your user name - Click My Preferences - Personalize appearance - My start page
