To access these settings, you will need to be in a group that has access to the Admin Module
How you keep track of people can be vital to running a successful business. You may wish to track everyone's contact details, including your staff, freelancers and clients. However you probably also want to give staff access to FoxOMS, but perhaps not to your clients.
FoxOMS has been designed to be incredibly flexible with how it handles people, and is able to deal with almost any scenario.
Types of People
Every person created in FoxOMS is by default simply a contact that can have emails, phone numbers, an organisation and a physical address attached to it. All these fields are completely optional so you don't have to fill out anything other than the first name.
Your staff, freelancers and clients will need to have other options selected so that they correctly appear in the various modules of FoxOMS.
There is no limitation to the combinations of options enabled for a contact.
A person can then also be given access to FoxOMS, they can be assigned a User allowing them to login and view or edit the schedule, project or task modules.
Exactly how much access they get is defined by the group that they have been placed in.
If a person needs to be 'bookable' or assignable as a resource, this option can be enabled.
If a person needs to appear as a client in the various client menus in FoxOMS (on invoicess or quotes for example), this option can be enabled.
You can quickly see the different people types assigned to each person, by looking at the type column on the Admin People page
