Every person who uses Coeus needs to be set up as a user

Every user has a set of roles which allow them to perform functions within the Coeus application

Every role is composed of rights which define a specific functionality

Users and Roles are configured through the Coeus Premium interface.

Users and their roles are associated to one or more units within your department, lab, or center’s unit hierarchy

If a user has different responsibilities in various units, they can be set up with the appropriate roles for each of the units

We’re going to open the phone lines now!

There will be a slight pause, and then a recorded voice will provide instructions on how to ask questions over this conference call line.

We’ll be answering questions in the order that we receive them.

We’ll also be answering the questions that were emailed to us during the presentation.

If there’s a question that we can’t answer, we’ll do some research after this session, and then email the answer to all participants.
