Form tabs
Use this form to provide a user's personal information and specify that user's access to FirstClass features. Settings on this form override all settings that were specified elsewhere for this user.
Only the administrator and users with the Edit user information privilege can modify this form.

Mail import button
Opens the remote messaging setup form for this user. The information you enter on this form enables FirstClass to retrieve POP3 mail from an ISP account.
Preferences button
Opens the user's Preferences form. Because some preferences are stored on the user's computer, not all changes you make here will take effect.
Résumé button
Opens the user's résumé. The administrator can edit this résumé.
Desktop button
Opens the user's Desktop.



User Information tab
Use this tab to add personal information about the user.

First name
The user's first or given name.
Initials
The user's initials (optional).
Last name
The user's last name, or surname.
81203_42521_14.png        Note
If you selected "Require unique user names" in the System Profile, FirstClass will not allow duplicate user names in the Directory. If the name you enter in the above three fields is not unique, you will receive an error message when you try to save this user account. Change one or more of the name fields.
Address
The user's address (optional).
Tel
The user's phone number (optional).
Fax
The user's fax number (optional).
Comments
Any other useful information about the user (optional).
Custom ID
This field is for integration with external applications. It can be used by external applications to store a database "key" in order to tie the FirstClass account to an external system. For example, the custom ID for each student could be the student number.
LDAP controlled user
Tells FirstClass that this user is to be authenticated through FirstClass Directory Services (FCDS) if external authentication is selected.
Select this for all users owned by the external LDAP server when you are running in master-slave mode but don't want to replicate. If replication is turned on, this field is set automatically by FCDS.
User ID
A unique user ID representing the user. The user ID consists of  alphanumeric characters, including punctuation and spaces (for example, sandy: 2). Leading and trailing spaces are removed automatically.
To strengthen security on your system, we recommend that user IDs not be related to user names. Include both numbers and letters in the user ID. A user ID should not be completely numeric, because this could conflict with the user IDs used by gateway accounts. To keep user IDs confidential, do not grant users the View user information privilege or use the Use user IDs as aliases feature.
Password
The user's password. To make it hard for someone to guess a password, it should mix numbers and letters. Set password security options on the Group Privileges form.
This field will always display •••••••• for security purposes. The administrator cannot see or get the user's password, but can change the user's password.
Client ID
A unique number is assigned automatically to each user registered on your server. When combined with your server serial number, this number uniquely identifies the user within your network of FirstClass servers.
Class
The user type. Regular users use a regular license. Remote users use a session license.
Mail aliases
All of the user's Internet mail aliases, separated by commas. For example, the user John Smith might have the aliases jsmith and john_s. Aliases specified here will overrride aliases specified on the Aliases tab of the Advanced Directory form. Internet mail aliases must not contain spaces or nonUS 7-bit characters, and they must be unique to your system.
Do not include the domain name, unless it is not your primary domain name. For example, if a user on the Husky Planes site, whose primary domain is huskyplanes.com, wanted an alias of tom but also one of tom@sales.huskyplanes.com, you would type tom,tom@sales.huskyplanes.com in this field.
81203_42521_14.png         Note
For multiple aliases, the first alias listed is the default used as the "From" name for outgoing Internet mail, although users will have the option of choosing their preferred alias when addressing a message.
Incoming mail will be accepted if it is addressed to any of the aliases, provided they are unique. If domain names are used in aliases, Internet Services will only accept incoming mail for domain names that resolve on your server.
If you enter an alias on this form and also enable "Use user IDs as aliases" or "Use initials and last names as aliases", a duplication may occur when you add another user.
81203_40134_0.png Voice DN
If you are a FirstClass Unified Communications customer, enter the user's DN(s) in this field. The internal DN that exists on your phone system must be the first DN entered if the user has multiple DNs. A DN is any valid phone number (with area code) that the user wishes to link to his FirstClass Unified Communications Mailbox. Separate multiple entries with commas.
81203_42521_14.png        Caution
Entries in this field wrap automatically. Do not enter extra spaces, carriage returns or tabs in this field.
81203_40134_0.png Voice password
If you entered a Voice DN, enter an initial password for this user. The user must change the password the first time he logs in using the phone. No matter how many valid DNs a user has, there is only ever one voice password.
This field will always display •••••••• for security purposes. The administrator cannot see the user's password, but can change the user's password.
Created
The date the user account was added. FirstClass updates this field when saving the user account for the first time.
Where
The volume on which the user's Mailbox is stored. You can select a different volume for new users, and move existing accounts to new volumes.
Last logged in
The date on which the user last logged in. FirstClass updates this field each time the user logs in.
Time used
The length of time the user has been logged in on the current day.
81203_42521_14.png        Note
FirstClass updates this field when the user logs out.



User Groups/Directory tab
Use this tab to enter and organize the user groups that this user belongs to.

User belongs to these groups
The list of user groups to which this user belongs. Membership in a user group provides the features and options of the group, and applies the group's Model Desktop to this user's Desktop.
The order in which you enter these groups determines the order in which privileges are set.
If you are using FCDS, the order also determines the Directory's tree view. Be sure to enter the groups in their hierarchical order, with the group associated with the highest-level organizational unit first.
Allow user to view these groups
Limits what this user can see in the Directory. His view is unrestricted (inherits any restrictions from the Group Privileges forms) if you either leave this field blank or enter the All Users and All Conferences groups.
You can include conference group names in this list. If you want this user's Directory view to list only certain user groups, but all conferences, include the All Conferences group in the list.
Use this privilege as a security feature, to assure the privacy of certain groups, or as an economy measure, to reduce Directory synchronization time.



Features tab
Use this tab to set unique privileges for this user. The "Set" checkbox selects or clears a privilege. The "Current" checkbox tells you whether the user currently has this privilege based on user group memberships.
81203_42521_14.png        Note
Features and privileges should be set on the Group Privileges forms for individual user groups. This form should be used for exceptions only.
Desktop section

Calendar
Allows this user to share FirstClass calendars. If the user does not have this privilege, he can still use the calendar for personal scheduling, but cannot invite others to events.
Contacts
Allows this user to use personal email addresses and mail lists. Users without this privilege can add entries to their Contacts folder, but cannot address mail to these entries.
Publish web site
Allows this user to publish a personal web home page. This home page can be accessed using HTTP and FTP. If a user does not have a web site, their résumé will be displayed to anyone trying to access their web site. You should make sure that users understand that their résumés may be published to the Internet.
Share documents
Allows a user to publish content stored in their personal My Shared Documents folder.
Messaging section

Allows this user to retract sent messages. Even with this privilege, users cannot unsend messages that have been sent through a gateway (Internet mail, for example) or moved.
Forward
Allows this user to forward mail in her Mailbox and in conferences. When the user forwards a message, FirstClass creates another copy of the message, requiring additional storage space. Therefore, you might want to restrict this privilege.
Set expiry
Allows this user to change the expiry date for an outgoing message. The expiry set by the user overrides any other expiry settings, such as those defined for a conference. Users without this privilege can still change the expiry of messages in their own Mailboxes.
Make urgent
Allows this user to mark messages Urgent. Because your system and some gateways can be configured to process urgent mail on a priority basis, you might want to restrict this privilege.
Receipt notification
Allows this user to turn on receipt generation. Because receipt notifications can increase message traffic on your server, you may want to restrict this privilege.
Mark as unread
Allows this user to toggle messages' unread flags on and off. If the user removes a message's flag before opening it, no receipt will be generated when the user reads the message, and the user's name will not appear in the message history.
