‘Menus’ – ‘Setup’ – ‘Users’

This section is for setting up and adjusting users within the project. If this project is running online, new users will still need access added by mydaEs support before they can connect.

The project administrator of mydaEs has the ability to setup individual user logins and personalize which menu items are available for each user.

Setup / Modify users
  1. Go to Setup > Users
    usersmenu1
  2. Re-enter your current password and click enter.

    If you are unsure of your existing password to the project, please contact mydaEs support.

  3. You will then see a list of all current users. From this form you have the ability to create new users and edit current users.

  4. To create a new user, click on the “New” button and the following screen appears
    setupusers3
  5. Enter the new user name and password. At this stage you can decide whether this user can see the users menu item in the Setup Menu by clicking the field “Maintain Users” (ie the menu item we are currently working through). This will enable them to maintain users and what menu items that they or others can access.

    Please note this will effectively make this user an administrator – as they will now be able to access any part of mydaEs.

    You can also choose whether the user can see the toolbars buttons which will give them shortcuts to some of our most heavily used features.

Available Menus

The Menus Tab allows you to determine exactly which menus this new user can see.

Some menu items will be selected for each new user by default, but you can change them as necessary.You can choose to enable or disable specific menu items by expanding the menu and ticking the field “Enabled” next to each item.

Please contact your mydaEs support person if you would prefer disabled menus are not visible at all to your users, rather than visible but disabled.

You can enable all menus for the user by clicking the button “Enable All Menus” or vice versa with the button “Disable All Menus”.

You can also enable all menu items within a menu by right clicking and selecting ‘Enable all in current menu’ or of course ‘disable all in current menu’.

Additional Settings

The Settings tab allows you to choose other selected options for this new user.
setupusers7Most of them should be self explanatory like enabling certain buttons on screens.You also have the ability to enable Single Sign on for your users. This saves your users having to enter in a username and password every time they open mydaEs. They will open mydaEs then as the user who is currently logged onto their computer. To make this work though the username created in mydaEs must match exactly the username on the computer e.g. if I log onto my computer every morning as Janinev, then if my mydaEs username is also Janinev (not Janine or jvangemert) and the single sign-on feature is turned on, it will by-pass the logon screen every day.

Restrict Access

You can also enable restrictions so that the user can only access selected accounts, locations, currencies or Jobs. If you enable these options, new tabs will become available at the top of the screen.

From this screen you can select account numbers from the left hand side, and move them across to the selected accounts box (right hand side) by either clicking ==> to move your range (or the left arrow on your keyboard), or else select >>> to allow this new user to access all accounts. You can also enter a different range of accounts at the top, that this user is allowed to create accounts in.

Save Changes

Once completed, click “OK” and then click the “Save” button. The new user will now appear in the list.

To edit the user, just double click on the name and you be able to change their menus etc. as shown above.
