Security Setup > Users






The Users page allows you to setup and modify users. Users can have both Task Roles and Account Rights Roles assigned to them.

This Section Includes:


Users Grid

Users > Update




Filters allow you to reduce the number of entries that appear on the grid. Select from the following fields to filter your grid.

Name: Enter a partial or full Last Name or a First Name preceded by a comma. For example, you can search for James Anderson using any of the following: "Anderson", "And", ",James", "Anderson, James", "A,J", etc.

Status: Select to show all users or just active or inactive users.

Access: Chose to filter by either Internal Only or External Only users.

Click the  button to display the results.

Click the Clear Filters link to reset all the filters.


Users Grid


Users are listed in a grid below the  link. The Status, Full Name, and Sign In Name appear on the grid.

Click the Add New User link to add a new user. The Users > Update page appears which allows you to add a new user with the corresponding Task and Account rights. (See the Users > Update section for more information.)

Click the Edit  icon to make changes to a User.

Click the Delete  icon to remove the user from the system. The Delete icon does not appear next to a user if the user is currently logged in or if the user is assigned as an Admin. Also, a user cannot be deleted if the user has updated anything (such as a journal entry) because the user is then "tied" to the historical data. In these cases, you could rename the user if you wish.

Users > Update


The Users > Update page allows you to enter or edit all of the information pertaining to a user. There are fields for name and login information, and tabs to assign task roles and account rights roles.

Login Information

Email Address: All users are required to have a valid email address for added protection.  This enables the ability for a user to reset their password if needed.  When adding a new user, an email address is required.  Existing users receive a message when logging in if they don’t already have an email address configured.  Only an administrator with Security rights to update Users can add an Email Address to a user

Login ID: Enter a Login ID. This is the login the user types to access the Financials. Usually some form of the users name or an email address. (e.g. LizBaker, LizB, ElizabethBaker@Example.com)

(new User) Send MinistryID invitation? Select this check box when adding a new user.  An email is sent to the person with instructions. The user will be prompted to choose their password. The next time the user logs in, they are prompted for the Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) Cell Phone number and sent a text message with an authentication code.

NOTE: This option is only visible when adding a new user. If you do not check this option and click Add, you will have an option to "Send Invitation" the next time you open the users record.

(exiting user) Send new credentials: This sends the user an email containing a new password in case they forgot their password for the scanner client..

(existing user) Linked to MinistryID (e.g., myemailaddress.com) Remove Link: This shows the email address linked to the MinistryID. Remove Link unlinks the email address from a MinistryID.

Locked?: Select this option to lock out a user from being able to log in. Uncheck this option if you want to unlock the user's accounts after the user has reached the limit of unsuccessful login attempts.

Active?: Select this check box if the user is active. If a user is not marked as active, that user will not be able to log in. (Users that are marked active count towards your number of licensed users.)

Admin?: Select this option to give the user access to every page and feature in the Financials. When a user is marked as an Admin, the Task roles assigned to a user are ignored but the Account Rights roles are enforced. (Only users with Admin rights can see this option when editing users.)

External Access Only?: Select this option if you want the user to only have rights to the Financials portal. The Portal lets users view and pay Accounts Receivable invoices, create Purchasing Management requests, View Payroll earnings information, and request time off. External users must also have a Task Role assigned that gives them rights to the Portal areas. (Users that are marked as "External Access Only?" do not count towards your monthly billing for the number of licensed users.)
