Establishing and Managing System Users

System User roles are not pre-defined in Limo Anywhere, although each System User can be set up to have access customized to fit their job roles.

NOTE: Limo Anywhere complies with the Payment Card Industry-Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) terms.

For more information on PCI-DSS please see the Knowledge Base articles over 'PCI Compliance'.

System User Access

Limo Anywhere has a number of security features that help protect your business and your customer's data. You can keep your account secure by restricting system user access access to certain areas of Limo Anywhere, restricting log-in access to certain times and days, and/or restrict access from a certain computer via IP or onlly allow system users to log-in from a certain IP address. Setting up these types of restrictions will reduce the possibility of unintentional errors or malicious acts.

NOTE: By default all new System Users do not have any restrictions applied to their profile which gives them full access to Limo Anywhere on any computer. System Users restrictions can be set at any time.

Restricting Access By Module

Under 'Restrict Access by Module' check the specific parts of the system to DISALLOW access to this user.

In the example below this user has been restricted from 'My Office', 'Reports', 'Dispatch', 'Settlement', 'Receivables', 'Payables'. Make note of the yellow box which warns that by default a new user has access to every module in Limo Anywhere until restricted by selecting that module as below.

Further detailed restrictions can be made in each module by clicking the 'blue arrow' indicator next to the module name thus exposing sub portions of the module. Illustrated below all selections have been expanded for illustration purposes.  For example here a System User has been blocked from Receiving or Applying Payments in Receivables but is allowed to Create Invoices. 

NOTE:  When a parent category in the module is blocked all the sub-portions will be blocked by default as well.

Restricting Access by Day and Time

There are two ways to 'Restrict Access by Schedule'.

  1. Access can be allowed between a certain start and end date. This may be useful for temporary employees or an employee that is a contractor for a specific period of time. In the example below the employee is allowed access only between October 7th, 2013 to December 31, 2013.

  2. Access can be allowed based on an employee's work schedule. In the example below the user is allowed access only between the hours of 9AM and 6PM, Monday through Friday.


Restricting Access From a Specific Computer
Under 'Restrict Access by (static) IP Address' enter the static IP addresses for the computers that are allowed to access the system by this System User in 'Allowed IPs' field. It is also possible to block access from a static IP addresses if know by entering them in the 'Blocked IPs' field.

NOTE: All of the restrict access features can be used alone or in tandem with each other. It is possible to restrict by module, schedule, and IP address simultaneously for any or all System Users.
