Settings overview
Ergonode gives you the possibility of personalizing all the settings for a more flexible user experience. Highly customizable options include user roles, languages or the possibility of defining units specific to your organization.
All the customizable settings are available from the “System” tab on the Side Menu. For instance, if you wish to add new users, or edit current ones, you will need to select “Users” from the “System” tab. From this view you can see a list of all users created in the system along with some basic info about them, including the role assigned to them and their activity. When in this view, click the “New User” button.
This will bring up a popup window with several fields to fill in and options to select that will define the new user. The fields are self-explanatory, so let’s focus on the two options that you can define by selecting values from their drop downs.
These two are Language and Role. The language selection is based on all the languages available in the system (regardless of the languages you input into your language tree), while the Role dropdown contains values defined by you within the User Roles section under the System tab.
This makes a nice segue to the User Roles – this portion of the System tab allows for the creation of roles assigned to specific users and defining the scope of these roles’ access to your system.
This is straightforward, similar in many respects to analogous sections in many other systems or apps that have user roles, the difference being that Ergonode allows for very fine tuning of these roles. Every small detail can be tweaked to your needs – from imports, attributes, categories, products, to settings, multimedia and users and everything in between. Access to each segment can further be defined in four broad levels – create, read, update, delete.
All of this combines to enable the defining of very specific user roles, thus limiting the possibility of users making errors or accessing elements that are beyond their scope.
Lastly, we have the “Settings” segment. There are three tabs here to check out.
First, you have the Languages tab which allows you to select multiple languages. After you decide on the ones you wish to use, you can move on to the next one, labelled “Language Inheritance”. From here you can establish a hierarchy of system languages.
Last but not least is the “Units” tab. There are a number of predefined units already present here, but you can define your own with ease. You can read more about Units here.
