Assign access rights

Fishbowl utilizes access rights to limit the modules and functions that a user has access to. Users will only see the icons for the modules they have rights to access. Access rights are set at the User Group level, meaning a user's rights are determined by which user groups the user is a member of. Follow the steps below to assign access rights.

  1. Open the Small.User Group.png User Group module located in the Setup module group.
  2. Open an existing user group or create a new user group.
  3. Users can be assigned to the group on the General tab. The Small.User.png User module can also be used to edit a user's groups.
