Creating Users and Assigning UI Rights

Creating Users

The System Administrator is the person responsible for maintaining the security of EBMS. Only a user with Administrator permissions can access the User Management window shown below.  Complete the following steps to add a new user:

  1. Select File > User Management from the main EBMS menu.

  2. Click on the New button to create a new user.

  3. Enter the new user's login name. The login can be the person's first name or complete name. Review the Processing Commissions > Processing a Sales Invoice with Commissions section of the salesperson commission manual for an example of using the login name within a document.

  4. Enter the Full Name and Description information. The Permissions setting located on the Name tab will set the general security permissions that affect access to general company information dialogs launched from the File menu.

  5. Click on the Modules tab to set the permission settings for individual modules.  These settings gives the user various security settings for individual ERP software modules such as sales, inventory, expenses, labor and financials.   

    The Permissions drop-down shows the following security levels available per module.

    1. Administrator: Allows access to all data as well as user and password security access changes set in File > User Management.

    2. Manager:  Allows global access in the same manner as the Administrator level but does not allow access to the user's security settings set within File > User Management.
    3. Advanced Entry: Sets the following security settings

    4. Basic Entry

    5. Viewer

    6. No Access:  Does not allow access to any information or functions.

Additional levels can be added to the option list. Contact an EBMS consultant for details.

The Password tab is where the administrator can change the employee's password if it was forgotten. Review the Creating or Changing a Password section for more details on passwords.

Removing Users

A user's security rights can be removed to temporarily disabled.  

Note that creating a user's security setting does not affect licensed users.  Review Server Manager > User License Allocation for user licencing details.  

Complete the following steps to remove a user:

  1. Select File > User Management from the main EBMS menu.

  2. Open a user security management record.

  3. Enable the Inactive option to temporarily disable a user login.

  4. Click on the Delete button to remove the user permanently.
