User profiles (15.3 and later)
From version 15.3 and later the User profile section of the System management module enables administers to setup user groups and customize the MeasureColor environment for the users in that group. The user profiles linked to these groups define what modules they can use and what actions they can take amongst other things.
You can think of a group like 'operators' or 'managers', each with their own setup tailored to their skills and needs, but you are free in how you configure these groups.
You can access the users and groups settings from the System management module.
Choose an appropriate name for your group and a short description if you want
The 'is Admin?'-check determines whether or not this is an administrator group, with the rights accompanying that. Only users from a administrator group will be able to add and change user profiles and groups
Here you can enable/disable all modules independently to suit your group's profile
You can only enable the modules that were included in your license/seat
Custom modules: Do not use unless Colorware provided you with the correct key/value pairs
Here you can enable and disable functions within the modules for this user group.
Depending on their role within your organisation not everyone will need all functions.
Functions like deleting or exporting printing conditions or color references you might not want to be accessible to everyone.
In the help
section you'll find excellent starting points for user profiles!
Please note that the 'Color references' in this section refers to Color books and not to individual colors or patches
Job setup workflow
On top of the page you find a bar looking like this:
When you hover above it a small menu will unfold which lets you select a preset, import an existing user profile or directly copy a user profile from another group directly.
You are advised to start with one of the presets (always start with the admin) to speed up your setup and walk through them to make adjustments.
In the user section of the Management Module you can assign every user to a user group after which all group settings apply to them. Of course all other user-related data can be changed here.
