Adding an employee to an Employee Security Group

Product Help Banner.png


Organising employees into groups makes it easier to manage security because you can assign task permissions to security groups and then add the employees to the groups. Then, when the employees log on to the application they inherit the permissions for the groups they belong to.


When you add an employee, you will see two lists. They are:

  • Is Not A Member Of... list showing the security groups set up in the system.

    The list may show these default security groups as well as others created specifically for the practice:

    Basic 1

    Allows Personal TimeSheet / Disbursement Entry and Basic Client Contact Access.

    Basic 2

    Basic JH


    Full Access apart from high risk Maintenance Codes and Personal Details


    Full Access apart from high risk Maintenance Codes


    Full Access apart form high risk Maintenance Codes


    Full access but can only see timesheets that they have access to


    Full Access

  • Is A Member Of... is blank until you add the security groups from the first listing.

Every employee has to be part of at least one security group before they can use the database.
