Access to FH is controlled via users and security. Users and security provides control over who can access the software, and what functions they are able to perform.

Add individuals who can access FH. If you are setting up your system for the first time, we recommend that you add a new user identity with full rights, and reduce the default user identity rights (user name equals Guest, and password equals Demo.

  2. Press New.

    The User Setup form is displayed.

  3. Enter the User Name for the user.

    Passwords can be required via the Administrative Options form General section.

    Certain password complexity requirements may also be specified in the Administrative Options form.
