Creating A Security Group

Security Groups allow you to restrict certain areas of your Point Of Sale system. For example, you can create a security group that allows users to run reports but not create new invoices. Security Groups can be configured in eQuate POS Back Office. Once a Security Group is created, users can then be assigned to the new security group by editing the user profile in the Back Office.

  4. Enter the details of the security group. Select which areas you would like this group to have access to (see Figure B below).
