Community is crucial these days. Boost employee interaction and build trust within your company by giving your team an environment where they can thrive and grow together!

Administrators can set several platform-wide or community-wide defaults. This document highlights those settings.

Note: We recommend you review these settings prior to onboarding users to the platform.

Settings include:

  • General - Set platform time zone, language, and user privileges for the community wall.

  • Security - Set restricted IP addresses, enable CAPTCHA, and select authentication preferences.

  • Customer date filters - Set default time periods for application filters and create custom date range filters.

  • Appearance - Customize your site’s brand.

  • Social - Enable GIFs and Badges.

  • Community Groups - Create, Edit, and Search for Community Groups within your team.

Getting There

1. Go to Settings > Community.

2. You will land on the General page by default, but all Community tabs are available from this view.


Name your Community, choose Spanish or English as your default language for the community, and set the community time zone in the General Tab.

2. You may also choose to enable CAPTCHA, an automated security service that uses a visual perception test to differentiate between humans and computers after three failed login attempts. Check the box to enable CAPTCHA.

Custom Date Filters

With Custom Date Filters, you can set default time periods for application filters and create custom date range filters.

  1. Select your default time period for application filters.

Note: The data presented to users as they click through to a new page will be based on the Default date period. (E.g., Quality Evaluation reports by agent will open to the default date period you set here.) This default is applied to all Playvox products and for all users. It will be visible at the top right of your screen when applicable. To view data from a different date period from the default, simply click the date filter button and select a different time period from the drop-down menu.

2. You may also choose to create custom filters.

  • Click Add Custom Filter

  • Name the filter, and set your custom dates. Then click Save.

  • You may add as many custom filters as you’d like by clicking Add custom filter. You may also delete filters from this setting.

Tip: Use the custom filter if your business period does not begin or end on the first and last day of the calendar month.

Note: Custom filters will appear at the bottom of the drop-down menu when you click the time filter button. Any user, platform-wide, will have access to these custom filters in the drop down window.


Create consistency between your Playvox site and your company’s brand by customizing your site’s look. Select a color theme and upload logos by clicking on the Appearance tab.
