You create or modify role records using the Role editor. You can open this editor by clicking Edit or View in Administration | Security Role.

Note: This version of MainBoss doesn't let you edit the contents of built-in role records. You can, however, edit roles that you have created yourself. You can also use the Role editor window to change the list of users associated with a role.

The role editor window contains the following:

Details section: Provides general information about the role.

Code: A name for the role.

Description: A description of the role.

Comments: More detailed information about the role.

Permissions section: Lists which permissions are associated with this role. For more, see Permissions.

Users section: Lists which users have this role. You may add or delete users from this list.

Save: Saves the current record. The editor window stays open in case you want to make more changes to the same record.

Save & New: Saves the current record and sets up the window for you to enter a new record. Fields in the new record will be blank or set to default values.

Save & Close: Saves the current record and closes the editor window.

Cancel: Closes the window without saving any changes you've made to the record since the last time you saved. When you Save the record, the Cancel button changes to Close, indicating that you can safely close the window without losing any changes.

Close: Closes the window. This button only appears after you've saved changes with Save or before you've entered any data at all. Otherwise, the button is labeled Cancel.
