Operator Level Rights

Useful Note After making any changes, it is very important to rebuild rights. Sign in using Exclusive mode at user level 99 and select File, Maintenance, Rebuild Lists to update Collect! to recognize any changes you may have made. Please refer to the Help topic Rebuild Lists for more information.

Useful Note You must sign out of Collect! completely, returning to the Desktop, whenever you change to a different User Level, or some of the rights from the previous level that you were signed in as may still be in effect.


This field displays the name of the form, field or menu to which the User has access rights. Click on the field or the down arrow to open the list of all menu choices, forms and fields in Collect!

If you want the name of the form, field or menu to read differently on the screen, you can type the new name here.

*** IMPORTANT *** Only use up to as many characters as are in the original name.

Useful Note If you want to use aliases for all User groups, ensure that you set up the aliases in the Access Rights list. Then make sure that all aliased fields are referenced in the group rights for User levels using those aliases.
