CLAIMS

1. A method comprising:

sending, from a user device associated with a particular user, a request for a confirmation message setting, wherein the request comprises an indication of an identity of the particular user;

determining that an operation included in a predetermined set of operations has been cued;

prior to performing the cued operation, receiving a response comprising an indication of a confirmation message setting for the cued operation, wherein the confirmation message setting is based on data generated responsive to the sent request, and wherein the confirmation message setting for the cued operation comprises an indication of whether or not to output a confirmation message; and based on the received response, determining whether to prompt the particular user via a user interface of the user device for a response to a confirmation message prior to performing the cued operation.

2. The method of claim 1 , wherein the sent request causes a computing system to generate a confirmation message setting for the cued operation for the particular user based at least in part on confirmation message settings for the cued operation of one or more others users associated with a group with which the particular user is also associated,

3. The method of claim 1 , wherein the sent request further comprises an indication of a group with which the particular user is associated.

4. The method of claim 1 , further comprising:

after determining that the operation included in the predetermined set has been cued, sending a second request for a confirmation message setting for the cued operation, and wherein the response is received in response to sending the second request.

5. The method of claim 1 , wherein the response is received prior to determining that the operation included in the predetermined set has been cued.

6. The method of claim 1 , wherein determining that the operation included in the predetermined set of operations has been cued comprises:

prior to performing a given operation, comparing the given operation with operations included in the predetermined set of operations;

determining that the given operation matches an operation in the predetermined set; and

responsive to determining that the given operation matches, halting execution of the given operation.

7. The method of claim 1 , wherein the confirmation message setting for the cued operation comprises an indication to not display a confirmation message, the method further comprising:

without first prompting the particular user via the user interface, causing the user device to perform the cued operation.

8. The method of claim 1 , wherein the confirmation message setting for the cued operation comprises an indication to display a confirmation message, the method further comprising:

prior to performing the cued operation, causing the user device to prompt the particular user via the user interface for a response to a confirmation message;

receiving a response to the confirmation message via the user interface; and

only causing the user device to perform the cued operation if the received response indicates the particular user approves of performance of the cued operation and otherwise causing the user device to not perform the cued operation.

9. A method comprising:

accessing stored data indicating, for each of multiple users, a confirmation message setting for a given operation and a group with which the user is associated;

receiving a request for a confirmation message setting, wherein the received request comprises an indication of a particular user;

determining that the particular user is associated with a group with which at least one of the multiple users is also associated;

generating a confirmation message setting for the given operation for the particular user based on the confirmation message setting for the given operation of the at least one of the multiple users;

modifying the stored data to further indicate the generated confirmation message setting for the given operation and the group with which the particular user is associated; and

sending, to a user device associated with the particular user, an indication of the generated confirmation message setting for the given operation for the particular user.

10. The method of claim 9, wherein the confirmation message setting for the given operation indicates a confirm value or a non-confirm value, which correspond to whether a confirmation message should be output prior to execution of the given operation or not, respectively, and wherein generating the confirmation message setting for the given operation for the particular user comprises:

computing at least one of a number of the at least one of the multiple users with a confirmation message setting indicating a confirm value or a number of the at least one of the multiple users with a confirmation message setting having a non-confirm value;

comparing the at least one of the computed numbers with a threshold; and setting the confirmation message setting for the given operation for the particular user to indicate the confirm value if the at least one of the computed numbers exceeds the threshold or the non-confirm value if not.

11. The method of claim 9, wherein the group with which each user is associated is based on the user's role.

12. A device associated with a particular user, the device comprising:

a user interface;

a communication interface; and

a processing system coupled to the user interface and communication interface, the processing system to:

send a request for a confirmation message setting, wherein the request comprises an indication of the particular user;

prior to performing a given operation, compare the given operation with a predetermined set of operations;

determine that the given operation matches an operation in the predetermined set;

responsive to determining that the given operation matches, halting execution of the given operation;

prior to performing the given operation, receive, via the communication interface, a response comprising an indication of a confirmation message setting for the given operation for the particular user, wherein the confirmation message setting for the given operation is based on data generated responsive to the sent request, and wherein the confirmation message setting for the given operation comprises an indication of whether or not to output a confirmation message; and

based on the received response, determining whether to prompt the particular user via a user interface of the user device for a response to a confirmation message prior to performing the given operation.

13. The device of claim 12, wherein the sent request causes a computing system to generate the confirmation message setting for the given operation for the particular user based at least in part on confirmation message settings for the given operation of one or more others users associated with a group with which the particular user is also associated.

14, The device of claim 12, wherein the confirmation message setting for the given operation for the particular user comprises an indication to not display a confirmation message, the processing system to:

without first prompting the particular user via the user interface, cause the user device to perform the given operation.

15. The device of claim 12, wherein the confirmation message setting for the given operation for the particular user comprises an indication to display a confirmation message, the processing system to:

prior to performing the given operation, cause the user device to prompt the particular user via the user interface for a response to a confirmation message;

receive a response to the confirmation message via the user interface; and

only cause the user device to perform the given operation if the received response indicates the particular user approves of performance of the given operation and otherwise cause the user device to not perform the given operation.
