Because preferences set in Tools, Option are specific to the user name, not the workstation, they are saved in the database and are not lost when you uninstall/reinstall the workstation. This includes Dashboard user settings.
- User settings, such as column widths on records and the list of recently opened records are not saved in the database and are lost when you install/reinstall a workstation.
- It is not necessary to uninstall/reinstall a workstation if moving the Blackbaud Management Console and database to a new server. The workstations only need to be manually updated to recognize the new database location. Refer to How to move the SQL Server database and the Blackbaud Management Console to a new Windows server (BB114770) for more information.
