Understanding System Users and User Roles

i-Laundry was designed with security in mind, to this end it can be customized to your needs and this is very simple if you understand the three major parts work, these are system users, user roles and role functions.

Role Function - almost every button, menu link or function within i-Laundry has a corresponding role function, this is basically an on/off switch

User Role - a user role consists of a collection of role functions and is assigned to a user

System User - this is the actual person working or needing access to the system

Basically, ther are two ways to set up users and roles, neither one is right or wrong.

Option 1: Create user roles as building blocks

Option 2: Create user roles as individual items
