This video shows you the new configurations added for Administrator users in RightFax 16.x.

The new 16.x family of RightFax offers new configurations for server administrators to grant more granular control for Administrator users centralized in the user configuration options in Enterprise Fax Manager.

If you are familiar with the user permissions tab in Enterprise Fax Manager from an older version of RightFax, you will see that there are now some additional controls here starting with RightFax 16EP2.

You can grant a user limited or full administrative access:

A Read-Only Administrator can view the settings for administrative items in EFM, but cannot create, edit, or delete any
items or settings.

A User Management Administrator can create, edit, delete, disable and enable user accounts. Like the read-only
administrator, they can view the settings for other administrative items in EFM, but cannot create, edit, or delete any of these items or settings. The ability to create and edit users does not include the ability to copy users between servers.

An Administrator can perform all administrative functions in RightFax, including creating, editing, and deleting administrative items in EFM and performing administrative tasks on the fax mailboxes of other users.

IMPORTANT: The administrative access permissions do not control the ability to access the RightFax Services in EFM. This is controlled by the user's Windows permissions. However, you can grant an administrative user access to RightFax Services in WebAdmin.

In addition to these administrative roles, you could define a Services Administrator where the user would have sufficient Windows permissions to access the RightFax Services and be granted Read-Only Administrator access to be able to run Enterprise Fax Manager.

To grant a user limited administrative access:

1. In the User Permissions/Attributes list, select the check boxes for the appropriate user permissions.

2. Select the Administrative Access check box.

3. Click one of the limited administrator roles:

-- For read-only access to EFM, click Read-Only Administrator.

-- For user management access to EFM, click User Management Administrator.

To grant a user full administrative access:

1. In the User Permissions/Attributes list, select the check boxes for the appropriate user permissions.

2. Select the Administrative Access check box.

3. Select the Can Bypass Privacy Restrictions check box if the administrator should have access to faxes in other users'
mailboxes and be able to manage user delegates in EFM.

To grant access to manage Services in WebAdmin:

1. Select the applicable full or limited Administrative Access check boxes, then click "Can Manage Services in WebAdmin."

That's a quick overview of the new for RightFax 16.x administrative access permissions.
