User Setup allows you to enter salespeople or other people who will be using LocPlus MLS. You may also want to setup people who will be responsible for customers, equipment, quotes, or who will make notes to any of these files. If you use the job costing feature, each person who will have time (and therefore costs) assigned to equipment should be entered. You may also enter fictitious login names like "SUPER" for a person when they are responsible for maintaining the system.

Different users may be assigned different security levels. Users who do not have a sufficient security level are restricted from certain functions. See these restrictions at the end of this document.


LocPlus MLS user code:
A six character code used to identify each person or system user. The code is entered when starting LocPlus MLS. The code is also used to identify the responsible party for a customer, equipment, wanted equipment request, quote, or follow-up.

First name:
The first name of the person. The name may printed on some documents like the quotes or invoice.

Last name:
The last name of the person.

The person's title may show up with the persons name on some documents like the quote.

The hourly rate for this person's labor. Used for billing employee time to equipment in the cost accounting.

The password required when this user starts LocPlus MLS.

Security Level:
There are three assigned security levels. Each person is assigned a security level in each category. A person can only perform tasks if they have a security level greater than the level required for that task. See the section SECURITY LEVEL REQUIREMENTS below for a list of restricted tasks.

For a persons name to be assigned to anything, this box must be checked. If a person is no longer active, don't delete that person, just make their name inactive.
