1Password 8 - Where are the settings previously in the "Vault" Preference Pane

I was trying out 1Password 8 primarily to see if biometric unlocking would help a specific user. However, I could not find the settings which are available in the Preferences>Vault pane of 1Password 7. How do I set "Always open to", "Show in All Vaults", and "Vault for Saving"

Here's the 1Password7 preferences:

And what I'm seeing in 1Password8:


1Password Version: Not Provided
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Not Provided
Browser:_ Not Provided

    The setting to save to a specific vault is not within 1Password 8. There is a feature request to have a saving vault return to the app. I'd be happy to add your voice to that request. That said, you can set a saving vault in 1Password on the browser. That might be helpful to you.

    The option to show in all vault would be akin to Using collections to create custom groups of vaults

    1. Open the browser.
    2. Right-click the toolbar icon and select settings.
    3. Select the General section.
    4. Set the saving vault.

    That said, you can set a saving vault in 1Password on the browser. That might be helpful to you.

    If you use the setting set in the Browser, is that a user level setting which would propagate to and be used by the iOS and macOS applications or only a setting with relevance while using the browser?

    With respect to using Collections that might work for my needs, depending on how "Collections" interact with your browser extensions. In particular, if one sets a Collection in the macOS app, will the browser extensions only use that specific Collection for both retrieving credentials and storing new credentials? If also for storing, which my quick test shows the Collection choice within the macOS app persisting across invocations of the macOS app, will that continue to be the case?

    I would need similar support for both macOS and iOS. Also, it appears from my quick test that when a Collection contains multiple Vaults that adding a credential defaults to the first Vault in the list but can be overridden before saving. It might be nice to be able to specify the default Vault for the Collection. Here my quick test seems to indicate that the Collection setting in the macOS app does not propagate to the 1Password Quick Access popup.

    Please see my prior question for the usage pattern I am trying to support. That is novice users such as child or elderly relative whom Family manager is trying to support.

    I really want to be able to have the family members default be to retrieving and storing in a specific Shared Vault.

    Browser specific. You can have a different setting for each browser. For example I can set one collection for Safari and another for Chrome. Currently 1Password in the browser does not support collections. I would love to see this ability. I think it would benefit so many users. A collection is just a container of things I need ready access too. It would not be a replacement for the saving vault location.

    Please add me to the list of individuals requesting the ability to continue to be able (1) Set the Vaults which are used in the "All Vaults" search, and (2) the default Vault for saving. Without that I can't see how to support novice or elderly users in Family accounts as described in my prior post

    BTW, the post to which your second post was made seems to have disappeared. Not sure how, I tried to use the "edit cog" to change "shared folder" to "Shared Vault".

    Apologies. The spam catcher caught it. I have wrestled it free and placed it back where it should be.

    Done.

    I replied to your other posting.

    Hi - I'd like to add my voice for this feature as well. I am the de-facto "IT Manager" for my wife, kids, siblings, and parents, and the only way they'll use 1Password is if I set it up for them and everything is automatic. They don't know what a "vault" even is, much less why new items should be saved in a particular one.

    I tried to count up all the devices I've installed 1Password on that need to "just work" - between laptops, iPads, iPhones, there's about 15 devices that I "manage". Upgrading to 1Password 8 on all of these will be enough work already for me - and after I do so, it truly needs to "just work" for everyone involved.
