Security and access rights to calendarsYou can define different access rights for each of the calendars located on your local machine. These access rights will govern the actions that can be performed by other users of CodeTwo NetCalendars. This holds true for the calendars created in CodeTwo NetCalendars as well as Microsoft Outlook.
To display the access rights window, click Access rights to calendars in Tools menu.
|Fig.1. Access rights management console enables fine selection of access permissions for individual users separately for each of the calendars.|
The access rights are defined separately for each calendar and user (Fig.1). The rights types are specified below.
|The right's name||Description|
|Read entries||The user can read items in the calendar. If the user is not given this right, the calendar is not visible and not listed.|
|Edit entries||The user can edit the existing entries in the calendar.|
|Delete entries||The user can delete the entries in the calendar.|
|Create entries||The user can create new entries in the calendar.|
The users who connect to your CodeTwo NetCalendars are divided into two groups:
- regular users
- Active Directory users
Each user who connects to a remote calendar must choose the logging mode. The Active Directory users when logging in do not need to provide their user name or password as this information is retrieved from Windows. Regular users, however, when connecting need to provide the user name and password. The user name and password must match the data stored on the remote machine. To open the list of users, click List of users tab in Access Rights Manager screen (Fig.2).
|Fig.2. In Access Rights Manager you can add users who will have access to the calendar.|
After defining the list of regular users (identified by their user name and password) we can move on to modifying the access rights to the calendars. By default each calendar includes the access rights for two specific users 'guest' and 'ad_user'. Naturally, these rights can be changed too.
The 'ad_user' rights are used when a user from Active Directory tries to connect to the calendar and its name cannot be found in the list of users. By default, 'ad_user' rights are maximized as they are considered as standard rights for users from the local network.
'Guest' rights are used when someone tries to connect to the computer without providing the user name and password. By default, this user will be able to view the available calendars and read appointments in the calendars.
