Additional Information

User Access

For each flag created, an employee Access Record will be created with that flag's name. By default, all employees will have 'No access' to that flag when it is first created. In order for an employee to be able to view, change, add, and/or erase information on that flag, the access level for that employee's record will need to be changed by an administrator. (Records > Employee > Records > Access Records panel)
