User Modules

P4W provides a tool to create custom user interface called module. Modules will control what can or cannot be seen and accessed by a particular user (e.g., menus, options, and fields). The use of modules helps to streamline day-to-day operations, minimizes security threats, and prevents accidental system disruption from users.

Create New Module

To create a new module navigate to Setup > System > Modules and click 'New' button in the top right corner of the window.

Fill out he module details. Notice that 'Name' field is mandatory. Press 'Submit' to continue.

Edit Existing Modules

To configure your new module select it from the modules list as shown below.

From the module window select 'Menu builder' tab.

From this page you can drag-and-drop (from left-to-right) the various sections and sub-sections you wish to add to a specific module. Modules are completely custom, you can add an entire section or just specific parts at a time.

You can also add a section and then delete whatever sub-subsections you want to restrict just by pressing delete button as shown below.

Notice: While 'Receiving' section is still selected for this module, it is now missing 'Un-receive Po' and 'Non-Po receiving.
