Tomorrow.io offers management of your unique profile settings. These details apply strictly to your account, ensuring you can manage your preferred settings without affecting defaults for colleagues tied to your company account.

This user settings guide will cover the following workflows:

  • Weather Units

  • Notification Preferences

  • Profile Details​

Weather Units

The weather units section of the User Settings workflow allows you to set how you view the default metrics of weather parameters on the map, and when setting thresholds for weather insights. The value of setting the default weather unit within the profile is that the preferred metric set will only change your view of the platform. Meaning, if another colleague in a different country wants to set their weather metrics to something different, it will not impact your preferred settings.

Tomorrow.io Tip

When making these changes, there is no save button. That is because your preferences are being saved automatically..

After setting your weather unit defaults, you should immediately see the change displayed on the map, trends, and insight creation page. 

Check out the below tutorial to begin managing your weather units:

The Map

The Map is where you view short-term or long-term weather trends for a specific location, among other functionalities. The trends for the different weather parameters you are considering will display in your default units. 

Trends Page

As shown in the map, short and long-term trends are also accessible from the Trends page. Here you will see the different weather parameters in your specified units.

Insights

Create an insight based on your chosen weather parameters and predetermined thresholds. Those thresholds are based on your preferred units.

Alerts

Receive alerts for insights on monitored locations based on the threshold of your weather units. When setting alerts, select the relevant insight, which contains your weather units. 

Notifications

Manage the devices you receive alerts to from your user settings. There are four ways you can receive notifications:

  • Tomorrow.io Mobile App: push notifications received your IOS device

  • Email Notifications: notifications received at email tied to your user profile

  • SMS Notifications: notifications received via text to the phone number on your profile

  • Desktop Notifications: notifications that appear on your desktop even when you're not looking at your Tomorrow.io. To enable, check out the troubleshooting links to enable popup blockers, and notifications on a Mac or Windows desktop, in tandem with turning on this feature in the Tomorrow.io Platform.

Your admin can update your notification settings, however the changes made in your user settings will override the defaults set within the Account Management workflows. Check out the below tutorials to begin managing your notification defaults:

Profile Settings

Profile Details is where you will manage your user data. This includes your: 

  • First Name

  • Last Name

  • Mobile Phone Number

  • Time zone

Your mobile number is not a mandated field but is required to receive mobile alerts. It is extremely valuable to receive mobile alerts, should you or your team be on the go.

Timezones are important for when you look at the timelines and trends and dashboards to align the pending weather events with your current timezone.Your time zone should auto-detect and set. However, you can change your timezone from the dropdown list. Check out the below tutorial to begin managing your profile defaults:
