Window Access Tab - WebTMA 5

Path: Admin > User Management > Records / Window Access Tab

The Window Access Tab allows you to limit the user's view to specific menus and windows.

In addition, you can set the default view or opening mode for some windows.

The Open Mode selections are also visible on the Groups window and can include: Identity, Add, Browse, and Last Record. Not all selections are available; it varies by the window chosen. Select Browse to open the window with the Browse Tab displayed. Select Last Record to go to the last record according to the navigate function for that window; this is the same as clicking Last on the toolbar. The Open Mode selections are only applicable when a window is first opened.

Permission to make changes to this window should be limited to WebTMA Administrators; however, if Users have access to the window, any modifications they make are limited to those they have been granted. For example, if User 1 attempts to Grant access to User 2 for which User 1 is denied, the only option available is Deny.

The window shows a tree list of the main menu options such as Admin, Organization, and Transaction. A series of check boxes on each line indicates whether the user has been granted access for various modes (Add, Edit, etc.) or has inherited settings from a group.

Use the buttons above the grid to grant or deny different combinations of access to all options at one time. Individual line items can be changed as needed. The next topic, Window Access Assignment Buttons, describes the use of each button.

Be sure to click the plus sign next to a menu name to view related submenus and access granted.

Z_btn_X_checkbox.png An X mark in the check box indicates the user has no access to the menu or to some of the access related to the window such as Add, Edit, and Delete.

Z_btn_Ck_checkbox.png A check mark in the box shows that access to the menu has been granted.

Z_btn_Blank_checkbox.png A blank check box means that the user does not have access, but the options could be granted to the user.

You can change access on an individual basis regardless of inherited settings.

Be sure to expand the tree to see any other line item restrictions.
