Scenarios in this section illustrate functions available to the system
administrator. These functions allow an administrator to update the user,
group, room, and global option databases.
2.6.1. User Database
220.127.116.11. Adding a User
When the user selects the 'Users->Add' item from the 'Admin'
menu, the system displays the dialog shown in Figure 40.
Figure 40: Add-user dialog.
When the adminstrator assigns one or more users to be a group leader, the assignment does not take effect until the assignee(s) is(are) notified and confirm the assignment. Specifically, when the uGroup Add command is confirmed by the administrator, a confirmation requiest is made to each of the assigned group leaders. The form of the confirmation request depends upon the current setting of an assigned leader's reminders options. Specifically, the confirmation requrest is sent immediately as an on-screen pop-up window if the assigned leader has 'on screen' selected as the default value for receiving reminders. For any other setting default reminders setting, the system sends the leader confirmation request via email.
To avoid the potential difficulties of interfacing the Calendar Tool with a
variety of different email systems.
