Users and Permissions - Introduction

Username: It is a mandatory field. Will be the name throughout farmerswife for this User (on Bookings, in Reports etc.) and also the login name for the User. The Username is case sensitive unless the Toolbox Setting: Case Sensitive Matching On User Names When Logging In is ticked in Toolbox > Settings > Server Setup.

* If the Legacy Web Client module is licensed, the Username will be the User’s login also through the Legacy Web Client. As Web Client logins have to be unique the Username cannot be repeated as login name for Client Contacts or Resource Contacts that have access to the Web Client.

See the Password Policies Article for more configuration options on passwords.

Inherit Rate and Activities From Object Class: Check this box if the Rates are to be taken from the Object Class or their Activities this User belongs to. Below listed Rate Fields apply only if the User does not belong to any class.  Activities (in the User Preferences) will still be available in case the User has a different pricing for a specific Activity not shared with the rest of Users in the Object Class.

Note: using this option, we recommend to enable the Toolbox > Setting > Class/Object > Ask For Class And Activity When Booking for all Users, so you get a dialogue asking which Object Class and Activity the User should be booked with.
