Having to remember so many different user names and passwords can be frustrating. That's why, in some ACS Technologies software, we enable you to link user accounts. Linking user accounts connects the user names and passwords of the two accounts. This way, when you change the user name or password of one, the other changes as well. Currently, only Access ACS and Facility Scheduler can link user accounts.
Linking user accounts between Access ACS and Facility Scheduler varies depending on which program you added the user to first. We recommend adding new users to Access ACS first: this makes linking the accounts easier.
Linking Access ACS Users to Facility Scheduler
Once you have created a user account in Access ACS, and once the user has logged in to Access ACS at least once, the matching user account for Facility Scheduler is automatically created and linked. All you have to do is assign roles so that the user has permissions in Facility Scheduler.
If Access ACS users have not logged in before, you can manually link their user accounts to Facility Scheduler.
Linking Facility Scheduler Users to Access ACS
If you create a user account in Facility Scheduler first, you must manually link the account to Access ACS.
To link users to Access ACS, you must have permissions to manage user accounts in Access ACS.
- Log in to Access ACS.
- On the toolbar, select Admin > Security.
- On the Users tab, select Other Users.
- Locate the user.
- Under Link Login, for that user, click Add.
- Enter the information of the user. Last name and e-mail address are required. (The user name and password are already entered from Facility Scheduler.)
Note: If the user's personal information is already stored in Access ACS, click Select user from People records.
- In the drop-down list, select the Assigned Profile for the user.
- Click Save.
The user can now log in to Access ACS with the same user name and password from Facility Scheduler.
