How do I add, modify or delete a users account?
 

Employee Access

The Employee Access function is a security feature that allows you to add, delete, document, and assign passwords to employees.



In addition, an access level of 1 through 5 is set in this section where the higher numbers grant greater access to the individuals. The top level 5 is normally granted only to the rental car manager or owner. In multi-user or networked systems, employee access is assigned station-by-station. You must maintain access for an employee on each workstation that employee uses.

Add

Adding Employee Access

Use the following procedure to grant an employee access at this workstation.

1.      Click 7 7 1 on the Main Menu.
The Add New Employee entry box appears:



 

2.      Type the Employee Account, up to four characters.
These can be any letter and/or number combination; initials are frequently used.

3.      Type the Employee Name, up to 14 characters.

4.      Click the drop-down menu arrow to choose the level of access for the employee. (Choose 5 for owners and managers, as they need to access the complete system. Level 1 or 2 is recommended for agents.)
Refer to the table following this procedure an explanation of the various access levels and the basic functions of each level.

5.      Type the employee’s password.
If you leave this entry blank, Rent-Ware does not ask for a password when this employee identification is used; otherwise, the correct password is required along with the proper employee identifier. (We recommend use of passwords for optimal security.) The password can contain any combination of letters and numbers. Be sure to note the newly assigned password!

6.      Re-type the employee’s password in the Confirm Password field.
