Hello Everyone,

After searching for a while and not having any luck, perhaps one of you can point me in the right direction.

Under account, I see the portion where you can set up different preferences depending on the Work/School/Home categories. It would highly benefit me to be able to add two of my computers to 1 category, and my main cruncher to another category.

My main cruncher has two different types of graphics cards, and it is difficult sometimes to get the right WUs for the right GPUs. If I have to turn off NVIDIA, my other two smaller rigs suffer (because they have only NVIDIA cards).

So, my question. I haven't been able to find where you actually assign certain computers to a preference category. This is probably really simple and I am just overlooking something. Would someone be able to point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance.

When you go into your account and you click on the link to view the computers on your account, click on Details next to the computer and near the bottom you'll see a drop-down box where you can assign that computer to a specific preference venue.

In Your Account (click link, or ACCOUNT in orange/black navigation bar above), click Computers on this account - View

For each computer you have, click 'details' in left-hand column: scroll right down to the very bottom of the screen, and locate "Location". That offers you ---/Home/Work/School/Mobile options to match the sets of preferences.

Avoid 'Mobile' for the time being (that was recently added for Android devices, but not fully implemented yet), but the others give you four sets to choose from: --- maps to Default.

Thanks everyone!

It is always the last place you look, I feel quite silly for not finding it earlier.

This makes my life much easier :)
