Create a User Role

By default, the HOS Web application has a single role "QHOS Admin," which is assigned to the default user "Admin." The administrator creates roles for other Hours of Service users (e.g., Safety Manager, Dispatcher), each with a different set of "rights." A right is a set of permissions. For example, the All Duty Status Edits right allows the user to edit a driver's duty status and to assign unassigned driving time.

  1. Select the Administration tab.
  2. Click Role.
  3. Select New Role from the User Role drop-down list.

    This is the default selection.

  4. Enter a role description, such as Safety Manager.
  5. Select one or more items in the Rights list to assign them to the user role.

    To select multiple rights, hold down the CTRL key while clicking.
