A Windows application, an Internet or Intranet site require to define the role of different contributors. It is often necessary to define several access levels according to the user. Indeed, all users do not have the same responsibilities or the same requirements. Their ability to use some of the application features can be customized.
Let's take a simple example: an application for sales management proposes the following features:
- Viewing the price list
- Modifying the price list
- Entering orders
- Entering customers.
The accesses differ according to the user. Some examples:
- the administrative assistants can see the price list and create orders
- the sales people can see the price list, place orders and create new customers.
- the sales directors have access to all the options.
To manage these access levels in your WINDEV applications or in you WEBDEV sites, all you have to do is include the user groupware in your application or in your site. In just a few mouse clicks, a standard application can be changed into an application that manages several access levels. This feature can be easily implemented in a WINDEV application or in a WEBDEV site.
When starting the application or the site, the manager will be able to create users (identified by their login and password) and to give them access to some features of the site or application.
Note: The user groupware is available for the WINDEV applications and for the dynamic WEBDEV sites run in Windows or Linux. The user groupware is not available in the static, semi-dynamic, PHP or Ajax sites.
