Properly Adding New Users in FaciliWorks 8i
You must have administrator rights to add a new user in FaciliWorks 8i.
To create a new user, navigate to the
Personnel -> Security -> Users tab. Click the
Add button on the
Users tab to bring up a new security window where you will enter the new User ID, User Full Name and Password. You can also choose to require a password change at first login by checking the
Require Password Change checkbox.
When you click the
Save button, you will be asked to add the new user to the
Staff Entry records. Adding a user to the
Staff Entry records allows an administrator to enter additional information about the user.
Once a new user has been successfully created and added to the
Staff Entry records, the user must then be assigned rights to the web application and be placed into a security group.
Users tab, select the newly created user from the User ID drop-down list. Under the
User Full Name field, check one of the
Web Application checkboxes to assign rights to FaciliWorks.
Next, you will place the user in a group by highlighting a single group from the
All Groups column and moving the highlighted group to the
Member Of column. Best practice is to assign a user to only one group.
