A Windows application, an Internet or Intranet site require to define the role of different contributors. Several access levels can be defined according to the user. All users have different responsibilities and requirements. Their field of action must therefore be more or less limited.
Let's take a simple example: a sales management application that offers the following features:
- Viewing the price list
- Modifying the price list
- Entering orders
- Entering customers.
Access may vary according to the user. For example:
- administrative assistants can see the price list and create orders
- sales representatives can see the price list, place orders and create new customers.
- sales directors have access to all 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 clicks, a standard application can be transformed 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.
Remark: The user groupware is available for WINDEV applications and for dynamic WEBDEV sites running on Windows or Linux. The user groupware is not available in static, semi-dynamic, PHP or Ajax sites.
