Create a Light User

The Community Data Solutions CRM system allows users with the manager role to manage the users of the database and their permissions.

Managers are able to create new users, change passwords if required, restrict or provide access to features/records and deactivate users.

If you have a user who does not require the system everyday, you may consider making them a Light User.

Light users are charged at a reduced rate as they have a quota of 12 days (calendar whole days) per quarter to access the database.  By default, Light Users have access 1 day per week (in a 4 week month).
