Is it possible to introduce a setting which will allow us to apply different security access settings to users, by selecting a 'role' for that user within FD.

We are a teaching facility with multiple services and FD databases.  We have hundreds of students, academics and admin staff.  Setting up new users is very time consuming when we have to individually tick the appropriate boxes for their access.  Additionally, each of our services requires slightly different access levels, which makes it even more complex.

By selecting a 'role' that can automatically apply custom access settings to a user it would save us a lot of time, and reduce potential errors.  This would be a huge improvement!  For example  a practitioner may be given the role of 'Student' with limited access to the system feature, a receptionist would be given the role of 'Admin' with full access to the system and reports etc.

Hi Brendan. Further to your latest post, we are planning a review of the Security and Access areas of Front Desk in the future where we plan to introduce a Role based system. More information on this can be found in the following article:
