WVP E users are divided into two classes:

  1. Manager– This class of users are responsible for managing the overall WVP E configuration environment, as well as user maintenance and authorization. A Manager may add/update/delete users of either Manager or Staff class. A Manager can also change a Staff user into a Manager.

First Manager user is set at initial installation. User is asked to identify the guardian user id (Group.User) of a Manager.

Manager Setting Options – They can set their own settings, as well as availability/default for others. And will be given access to all sections within Web ViewPoint Enterprise.

Staff Authority Control – Grant user ALL or ONLY specific permissions from the three available categories:

  1. Staff– By default, new users added by a Manager, are of Staff class. As stated earlier, a Manager can also set a Staff or new user to be a Manager.
