This option allows you to set up Security Restriction Groups in StaffScheduleCare. You can select the user's Security Restriction Group from a drop-down menu instead of setting up restrictions (departments, classes etc.) individually by user.

You can also apply different restriction groups to your employees, for example, if employees do their own Time Card corrections and need to select additional classes they have worked in addition to their home classes.


Please note that in this case employees would still be allowed to view/edit their own data only.


The Security Restriction Group determines the data (department, class etc.) that the user/employee can access.

The Security Access Group determines the StaffScheduleCare menu options that are available to the user/employee.


Select the Config menu.

Select the Security menu.
