A login profile defines the general rules that determine the types of data a user can access and what the user can do with that data. Thus, certain users have unrestricted access to all data and can maintain that data fully, while other users may not see all data and cannot update the data they see.
When you create a login for a user, you will use a login profile. Consequently, you should set up separate profiles for each group of similar users and then apply the same profile to all users who belong to that group.
The settings on a login profile apply to all the logins that have the profile assigned. Any changes to a profile will therefore affect all those logins.
The product is supplied with two profiles already set up:
which provides full access to all functions, so that necessary changes can be made. Any logins that have this profile assigned must have passwords set to prevent unauthorized use.
allows only restricted access so that users can only update their own timesheets. This type of profile is therefore suitable for users who only access the system to record the time they have worked and the expenses they have incurred.
You should create other profiles to cover all types of users. These will be tailored to cover their specific processing needs.
