How To Configure System Roles and Admin Module

Wednesday, June 27, 2018 TimeTec 0 Comments

Please note that the information and images below refer to TimeTec TA software. However, this particular module/ feature is also available in TimeTec Patrol and TimeTec Leave with the same rules and functionality, hence you can also use this as reference for all three abovementioned softwares.

In view of security concerns, TimeTec TA offers control of access rights to authorized users as permitted by the organization. By default, there are two types of User Role:

1. Master (System Administrator) who have full access and responsible for setting up and maintaining the TimeTec TA system
2. Normal User - TimeTec TA allows customer to create and customize the access rights that are given to the Admin roles which are then assigned to select employees. 

In our goal to improve the system for better user experience, we’ve prepared some tips on how users can now manage the System Roles and Admin module more efficiently and effortlessly. Below are some quick tips that show how this can be done:

Add System Role:
At the System Role tab, users can create a new System Role with specific access rights by clicking on the Add button.

In the pop-up window, there is an option that allows user to copy the access rights from existing System Role or even edit the copied role if necessary. This is to fasten the process when the user is creating a new system role with major similarity to other existing roles. Next, please fill up the System Role Name and Description.

Moving on, selecting Full Division will allow the Admin to access all users in the Organization Structure while Partial Division will only allow Admin to access certain users based on the structure.

Subsequently, set the access rights for the System Role by ticking Full Module Rights to allow all modules access in TimeTec TA while unticking it allows users to select which module is accessible for the role.

Assigning Admins Into System Role:
After setting up the System Roles, the Admin can also be easily assigned under the System Role by clicking on the ‘+’ button.

Once clicked on, a pop-up window will appear and a list of Admins (excluded from the role) will be displayed for the users to select.

Configuring System Role While Adding Admins Into the System:
On the other hand, System Roles can also be specified while adding an Admin into the system. To add an Admin into the system, please click on the Add button under the Admin tab.

In the pop-up window, select the existing system user that you wish to assign as Admin and select the System Role. Note that the default System Role is Master if users do not create any System Roles within the system.
