PM.004 User Groups (Security Permissions)

PRINTJOBMANAGER > Knowledge Base Documentation
 
Important: User Groups must be setup BEFORE creating Users in PrintJobManager.
 
 
In this document, we will cover how to Create/Edit/Delete User Groups (Security Permissions). All Users are required to be assigned to a User Group. Multiple users can be assigned to the same User Group a good example would be, all of your Customer Service Representative could be assigned to the "CSR" User Group, all of your Sales Representative could be assigned to the "Sales" User Group. You can also create a User Group for an individual user if they require a unique set of permissions.  
 
Your PrintJobManager subscription has come preloaded with 4 User Groups, Customer Service RepProduction PersonnelSales Rep and a SUser (All Rights-Administrative User). Please check these Preloaded User Groups to make sure they meet your specific requirements, before assigning Users to them.
