Full Control Over User Access Rights

Design your access policy as simply or as complicated as your business rules are. From a simple scheduler / non scheduler model to systems involving third party companies accessing a portion of On Schedule and it's data. The latter is ideal for employment agencies wishing to give some access or control to clients.

Access barriers.

There are four access levels. Schedulers (managers) can view and edit the whole application. Non schedulers (staff) can mostly only view information with very limited editing rights - they can enter their own availability. You have full control over what restricted users can see and edit. Non users finally can be scheduled in the system but cannot login. Oh yea... clients can login and view their schedules too.

The controlled resources are pages, employees, clients and places.
