- Allow Quicklinks
- Add/Edit Service Orders
- Add/Edit Tasks
- Assign Resources
- Manage Schedule
You will recognize this issue if you find that you cannot create use some of the new functions in SI5.5 like creating Tasks, or if you cannot assign Resources . Generally, you would just need to open the SI5.5 Administration Console and make sure that your Group is assigned the appropriate permissions. If the permissions do not display within the interface, then apply this quick fix below:
1. Open the SI5.5 Administration Console and create a Group named “Administrators”, spelled exactly, no quotes
2. Add at least one user and one permission to the Group.
3. Navigate to and run C:\Program Files\D-Tools\SI 5\Server\ServerConfigurationWizard.exe
You will now have the new SI5.5 permissions available to you.
