Users and Workgroups

As an application grows in complexity and the number of potential users grows to match, you may decide that you want to restrict some or all of the application to logged-in users. To do this, you will need to create a list of authenticated Users, assigning each user to one or more Workgroups. Workgroups are connected to one another by creating Relationships between them, and these relationships determine the position a workgroup - and its members - occupy in the hierarchy of your business.

You can further control the access permissions available to individual users by creating and assigning User Roles. Doing this lets you hide areas of your application from users that do not have the requisite role to view them.
