Creating Users

Print Friendly and PDF Follow

Non-staff users can be created in both the Aeon Desktop Client and Aeon Web Client. When a user is created, the user record is housed on the User Information form in the Aeon Desktop Client. You create, edit, view, and track user information from this form as well as add an image to the user record. In the Aeon Web Client, the user record and details are stored and modified on the User Information page, however, user images can only be added and/or modified using the Aeon Desktop Client.
