Here are the base terms which are used in the online office interface and documentation.
A record (Address record) – a type of resource record in the DNS database that is used to map a domain name to an IP address.
Access Rights (also called Access Permissions) – the rights that determine what a certain user is allowed to do while working with the system. Access rights can be restricted in each of the portal modules. (see also Restricted Access)
Access Level – a rank in the hierarchy of users which have different sets of the access rights. The higher the access level is, the more information and features can be accessed by the user. There are three general access levels in the online office: Administrator, User and Guest. The Administrator access level can be subclassified into the following three grades: Module Administrator, Full Access Administrator and Portal Owner. In the Projects module, there are two more levels: the Project manager and the Project team member.
Access Type – determines specific actions that a certain user can perform on the file (viewing, editing, deleting) or any system resource. Is used in the Documents module, Calendar and the Portal Settings section. There are three access types in the Documents module: Read Only, Full Access, Deny Access.
