It is not unusual to see multiple Roles assigned to users in VTI. This is because Roles are used to control the parts of VTI an employee has access to, and also what actions they can take on specific VTI screens. Everyone is assigned the role of User, this is the base Role which provides them access to the system. Depending on the various functions some users may need to perform when in the system, you may see users with have many Roles assigned in addition to the base Role of User.
Employees who use the dynamic schedule feature will have the Role of Dynamic Schedule assigned to them. Supervisors, schedulers and payroll clerks will also be assigned similarly named Roles, which provide the permissions to perform the required tasks for this type of manager. Although many Roles perform similar or common functions, each Role can be customized to match your requirements. Roles are also used throughout the system to specify which users have access to individual navigation icons, navigation menu options found under those icons, and News and Information messages.
Most Roles, when assigned to users, are assigned one or more specific Ranges. These Ranges determine the organizational scope of their rights for that Role. For example, if a user is assigned the Supervisor Role for “Range A”, then that person can be assigned as a Supervisor only for users in “Range A.” The User, System Admin, and Dynamic Schedule roles do not need to be assigned for particular Ranges.
