How can I use Security Groups and Locations?
Posted by Savance on 01 July 2010 08:13 AM
EIOBoard (EB) has many built-in security groups. Additional security groups can be defined to fit most--if not all--necessary configurations. Below is a summary of what each security group can access within EIOBoard.
EIOBoard Defined Security Groups
EB Admin: Has full control to the Admin features and can do everything all the other security groups can do.
A person can belong to one group, multiple groups, or no group at all. If someone does not belong to a group, the only way to see them is on the "All" group tab.
A person can be a member of one location, or no location at all. A person belongs to one location by association. By setting Status Locations during Status Updates, EIOBoard puts those people into any location in an actionable way. Conversely, when someone does not belong to a location, the only way to see that person is to specifically change your view settings to the "<All>" Location.
Desktop Interface: Adding Groups and Locations
Web Interface: Adding Groups and Locations
To change a user’s security, group, or location, simply select the user from the Users tab in Administration. Place checkmarks next to the desired securities, groups, and locations in the right pane. Your selections will automatically be saved.
On the Web Interface
Choose “Edit” on the user you would like to assign a security group.
Here you can assign the groups, locations, and security groups all in one spot.
You can also add multiple users to a particular location or group under the Manage Groups / Locations tab. Select the Group or Location that you would like to manage and hit the Members button to bring up a Select Users window. You can place checkmarks next to all the users that you would like placed into that particular Group or Location, then hit Update to save the changes.
