User Level Security

Menu Option: Administration>Users and Security

 

The default user name is the same as the current Windows user name. Where several people use the same computer, each may use their own name to logon to this software. There is no need to create a record for each user, as this record is created automatically the first time a new name is used in the logon screen.

 

When the software is first used, the initial user is added as the Administrator, security level 10A (All). A default user is also set up, at a default level of 10A.

If no security is desired, nothing else need be done, as the default password is blank. If security is desired, add a password to the administrator user, and set appropriate levels for the default user.

 

Every time a new user logs on to Mindbow Fixed Assets, a new user is created with no password, and security is inherited from the 'default' user.
