Role Based Administration


System administration can be delegated to various users in order to perform role based administration. An unlimited number of users and groups can be created by system administrator(s). Each user will only have access to the sections of PBXware MT menus according to group membership permissions.

This is commonly used to allow management, operators, supervisors, etc access to the sections of the PBXware MT to which they have adequate knowledge and experience.

Standard and Advanced Options



PBXware MT has been designed with simplicity and extensive configuration options as primary goals. In order to achieve both goals, administration has standard and advanced modes throughout all sections.

Standard Options
Standard mode is designed to allow an easy 'no brainer' method of administration as the level of configuration knowledge needed is based on common fields of information (Name, email address, etc.). This is possible to achieve since PBXware MT uses a powerful template system which pre-configures all advanced options leaving only common information values to be entered.

Advanced Options

Advanced mode options, on the other hand, require much better system knowledge in order to fine tune the system settings for various applications and usages. This manual tries to provide detailed information for advanced options. However, administrators should bear in mind that extensive training and hands on experience is required in order to be able to administer advanced sections effectively. For simplicity, all options available in the standard options are not repeated in this manual under the advanced options.
