Database user profiles allow administrators to grant or deny individual user access to IFP menu items, summary files and item codes. Note that separate user profiles are used for each individual database.
Each IFP database has a default user profile defined, upon which all new user profiles will be based. Administrators can quickly reset an individual user's profile to these default settings if required.
Note: All users who do not have a user profile defined will use the default user profile for the database.
Create a New User Profile
- From IFP Home, select Databases/Files > Database Manager.
- Select User Profiles in the left navigation.
- Click Add on the toolbar. The Create New User Profile dialog is shown.
Select the user you wish to add a profile to from the drop-down list. The list shows all users that do not have user profiles in the current database.
The User Profile can now be edited to control the user's access to the current database.
