Explanation of terms

Users are the persons with (authorized) system access. You can create as many users as you like. Each person should have their own user with their own access data. At this point, the users are given the right to act in the system via roles, within the scope permitted by the role.



The user can be configured via the menu on the page User 


Behavior in the system

  • Viewing permissons
    A user always receives viewing permissions and the right to do things in the system from the organizational unit in which they are located downwards. This means that he can do something in his OU and in all those below it. It is not possible for them to act in adjacent or higher-level OUs.
    Example: A user is created at city level and their role is administrator. He can only see the correspondence templates that are created at city level and below. Not the ones that were created for Germany and Co.
  • Renaming
    Users can be renamed at any time (first name and last name). They will then immediately appear anywhere in the system with the new name.
  • Changing the user name
    If something changes in the user name, an e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address stored in the user for information purposes.
  • Forgot password
    If users have forgotten their password, this can be reset by the user themselves if the function Request new password is activated in the security tab in the basic settings. Instructions for changing the password: Change password / Forgot password
  • Locked user / Unlock user
    If users have entered their password incorrectly several times, they must be unlocked again by administrators for d.vinci from your company. See: Unlock users
  • Deletion
    A user can only be deleted after all dependencies have been removed. For example, by first transferring the responsibilities to other users.
    If a user is deleted, their user name is still listed in the application, job openings, etc. and in the history.

How our customers use this

Many of our customers use a login with username and password. However, it is also possible to set up Single Sign-on. Users then only have to log on to their computer once in the morning, but do not have to enter their user name and password again when starting d.vinci. Users can request a new password themselves if they have forgotten it.
