User Groups


1. System user permission settings are controlled by the User Groups that have been created in this module. Once a user has been assigned to a particular user group this will enable their scope of access to the different modules as well as their individual range of permitted functionality within said modules.

2. Every new management system is pre-populated with a standard, basic set of user groups, but these can then be edited, and additional user groups can be created to meet every individual company’s organisational needs.

Note: It goes without saying that it is of critical importance for management to diligently control who will have access to add and edit records within the User Group module itself.



Adding or Editing a User Group


1. Select Company on the navigation menu. Then select User Groups from the drop-down sub-nav.


2.
Click on the Add button to access the standard user group record form to complete.


3.
All required fields (highlighted with a red bar) must be completed.

Note: The User Groups record contains a large number of sections. Every section ‘controls’ permissions for a specific module of the management system. All sections of the record form need to be scrutinized and completed meticulously to ensure that the correct set of permissions is allocated for the new user group being created.

4. Similarly, when required to Edit a specific pre-existing user group, navigate to the User Groups list view page as per point 1 above. Then tick the correct user group record (or right-click the user group name) and select the Edit button. Proceed to make the desired changes in the necessary field(s) and/or checkbox(es).


5.
Once all detail is captured, complete and correct, click the Save button.
