User Management

Jump to: navigation, search

User Management is a feature so far only implemented in metigo MAP. You can create several users for your project which are equipped with different user rights according to the requirements of your project. This makes sense especially for large projects involving several parties, administrators as well as users can be provided with full or restricted revision rights which permits by example just the deletion and modification of some mapping elements.

The user, time of creation and time of last update are saved for each mapped element. These attributes can be used as base for later analysis of the history of mapped damages, events, and other mapped elements as well as the number of user-defined accounting periods.
