How do I add users in eNICQ?

It is recommended that each user be given their own account to log into eNICQ. To do this, click on the Tools menu and select Users...

This will bring up the Users listing:

Click Add to create a new account.  The New User dialogue will appear, allowing you to enter a name and password for this account:

Please complete the entries on the New User dialog. 

User Name:  Enter the user's actual name.  The user’s name is not used for anything but your center’s internal identification.

Login:  Enter the abbreviated name the user will use to log in.  This is not case sensitive.  The login name is not used for anything but your center’s internal identification.

Initials:  Enter the initials of the user.   The initials are not used for anything but your center’s internal identification.

Password:  The password is case sensitive and must contain a minimum of 8 characters, including at least two alphabetic characters, and at least 1 number or special character such as: !@#$%^&*+-=:?`~.  An example of a valid password is “Sample$123.”  Be sure that the password will be remembered by the new user.

Security Level:  Set this to either “Administrator” or “User,” depending on whether this person will need to access the settings and utilities available under the Tools menu.  Only an Administrator level account can create new user accounts or edit existing user accounts, add centers to eNICQ 5, change settings that affect other users and run some of the eNICQ 5 utilities.

“Centers” Tab:  You will not be able to use this feature until you have added centers to eNICQ 5.  If your eNICQ 5 database contains data for more than one center and has multiple users, you may want to allow users to access data for some centers but not others.  By default, a new user is granted access only to the center the Administrator creating the account is logged in with.  To modify the centers a user can access, select the Centers tab and check or uncheck the Allowed box for each center to set the appropriate access rights.

Click OK on the New User dialog.
