User groups are used to assign the same set of permissions to a group of users.
In the Security window, click the User Groups tab.
User Group: Lists the available user groups to assign permissions to. Highlight a group to view selected permissions.
Permissions for group: Displays the permissions for the selected user group. Permissions allow or restrict access to a specific action or Open Dental feature. Check or uncheck permissions as needed for the group. For information on what each permission controls, see Permissions.
If you check a box for a permission with a User Group Lock Date, the following window will come up. This will let you prevent alternation of historical data. To set a date limitation, enter a value in the Date or Days field, then click OK to save. If left blank, there will be no lock date.
Users currently associated: Displays the users currently associated with the selected user group.
