User roles allow you configure which user groups have access to which part of the software. This way you can create a single template for all “Lab Technicians” for example without the need for creating different privacy settings for each user individually.

2. Define access permission for the user role
- Expand each software center to show the modules. By default a new user role will have access to all modules except for settings.
- Select which modules this user role will have access to
- Select which programs the user role will have access to and whether they are allowed to make changes or if they only have a read-only right
- Select which record types the user role will have access to and whether they are allowed to make changes or if they only have a read-only right
- Select whether the user role has access to the reporting tab or not
Important: No other user group besides Administrators should have access to the settings tab. This is because a user is able to change their privacy settings if they have access to the settings and allowing them to do so would make the idea of limiting their access obsolete.
