Users

Using this tab you can manage CodeTwo Public Folders users' accounts. The Administrator can use these accounts to set Client Apps' users the individual access rights to shared MS Outlook data and folders. The Users tab is also used to manage the administrator's account.

List of users

To open this tab open the Administration Panel (Start menu, All Programs, CodeTwo, Public Folders Syncing Master), click Users and the List of available users will display (Fig.1).

Users' accounts management window.

When you open the Users tab for the first time, there will be only one default user available on the List of available users called the Local Guest. This is a public folders kind of user, whose access rights to the public folders are restricted by default (however, may be changed by the administrator at any point). Thanks to this solution, every user does not have to wait for the administrator to create his/her account and can connect to the local Syncing Master just after the installation of the Outlook Add-in is completed.

Info

The Local Guest user may only be used with the Local network only connection type. This user type is unavailable with other types of connection with the Syncing Master.

Using the Users tab, the administrator can manage other users' accounts:

  1. To create a new user account click New and choose between:

    • the Standard user - the same as the Public Folders user, whose logon credentials and access rights are set by the CodeTwo Public Folders administrator,
    • the Active Directory user - the same as the Domain user, whose logon credentials and access rights are set by the company's domain administrator,
    • the Anonymous user - logon method available only in the Mobile App, whose access rights are set by the CodeTwo Public Folders administrator.

    After choosing the user type, a window will display asking for a login name and a password. Remember that the same password has to be entered twice (Fig. 2.). To make it easier, you can check the Show password option to see what you are typing. After clicking OK, the new account will be ready to use.

    PF - Create new user.

  2. To delete the unwanted user's account simply click on the account and hit the Remove button. A window will display where you can either cancel the action by clicking No or confirm permanently deleting the particular account by choosing Yes.
  3. If the user's password leaks outside the organization, you can easily change it by clicking Change password In the window that opens, enter the new password twice and confirm this action by clicking OK (Fig. 3.).

    PF - Change user password.
