The first step is to insure all of your users are accessing the same set
of data files. During the installation you need to select a Shared Network Location. If you are
installing the application on the server from which the application will be run, select a drive
and directory on the local server where you want to place the application. In the example on
the right, select a location, if you want to change the default location, by selecting the
Browse Button and either typing in the new drive and directory or navigate to the
correct location. Then click the Next Button. You will then have to share the folder so
users of the application can access the directory.
If you are going to install the application onto a different computer, click the
Browse button and either type or navigate to the correct location, then share the folder
on the server.
NOTE: You must first map a drive on your local computer to the share on the server where
you want to install the application
For example: X:\sharename\directory_name
If the directory_name does not exist it will be created
Note: You can name the directory on the shared location anything you
want to, for example...Service PC
On this Update Users Screen enter the users First and Last (Surname)
In the Login field enter the name the user will use to Login to the application. This will
also be the users password.
It can, and should, be changed after they have successfully logged in.
NOTE: The applications do not enforce strong password rules. If you want to have strong
passwords contact us and you will get a new application to download.
NOTE: The first user assigned will be given Supervisor Rights.
When a user logs in they can be classified into one of 3 possible Levels.
the level with all the power is called a Supervisor. The
Level with no power (in fact they will be denied access) is called No Access. In
between, where a user has potentially limited power, they are allocated a Level called
Operator. The difference between a Supervisor, and an
Operator is obviously a significant one. Simply put, a Supervisor is allowed to change the
security access rights of other Users. An Operator can not change either their own, or anyone
else's, Access rights.
See Access Rights for a complete description.
