Set a role for a Practitioner

From Version 5, Bp Allied has a new way of managing user permissions. This is done via System > Manage Permissions.
Before you start:
  • You must have the permission 5000 - Can Manage User and Permissions to be able to access the User Administration and Permissions tab for all Users.
  • Resetting permissions for Clients as shown overrrides any client permissions changed via the Client Record EXCEPT the assignment of Primary Practitioner
  • By default there MUST always be one user set as the System Administrator. The permissions set against this role are unable to changed.
Go to the System tab
Click on Options
Click on User Administration
Find the user you want to change the permissions for by using the forward and backward arrows
Click the Permissions Tab
Set a role for a Practitioner

If a Practitioner or other user leaves the practice then their account can be disabled from use by unticking the Account Enable tickbox.

The Practitioners Permissions tab will also display a Future Appointments button so that this report can get re-run if required.

When clicked, the following options will display
Click Yes, No or Cancel as required.
Manual Updates refers to any changes made to permissions that mean that the users access to a client differs from that assigned by their standard role.

Windows Username

4. Windows Username
When in use, the application matches the Username of the logged on Windows user to the value entered for that User in Bp Allied Windows Username field.  A match means that the user is automatically logged in to Bp Allied.
  • It can only be used in Practices that have a Windows Domain set up - eg IRESOLVEIT\Glen, MYPRACTICELIVE\Glen - A domain ensures that all users have unique usernames and that they adhere to their companies password policy.
  • All users in a practice must use the same Authentication Method - ie you cant have some on the Windows Authentication and some on Bp Allied Authentication.
This option can only be enabled for use by the Bp Allied Team as there is a setting that needs to be configured in the DBOptions table called Authentication Method.
