Overview of security

The system administrator is responsible for setting up security rights to Synergetic, and to functions and data within the system. Access to the system is controlled by a username and password.

Within the system, your access is restricted according to your role within the organisation. For example:

  • the bursar will probably be given access to all financial functions
  • individual financial administration staff might only have access to the area that they administer. For example, debtors.

Access can be granted according to:

  • The program within Synergetic. For example, students and debtors.
  • Individual tabs within the program.
  • Specific types of data. See Maintaining security permissions in the System Maintenance for information on how to maintain security access rights.

The screen captures within this documentation assume that all access rights have been granted and so may not match with what you see on your screen.
