User Group

User groups are used to assign the same set of permissions to a group of users.

In the Security window, click the User Groups tab.

Also see:

User Group: Lists the available user groups to assign permissions to. Highlight a group to view selected permissions.

Permissions for group: Displays the permissions for the selected user group. Permissions allow or restrict access to a specific action or Open Dental feature. Check or uncheck permissions as needed for the group. For information on what each permission controls, see Permissions.

If a user checks a box for a permission with a User Group Lock Date, the following window appears. This allows users to prevent alteration of historical data. To set a date limitation, enter a value in the Date or Days field, then click OK to save. If left blank, there will be no lock date.

Users currently associated: Displays the users currently associated with the selected user group.
