Organisations and People
You organise all internal and external companies into an organisational hierarchy. This makes it easy to reflect the real structure of the organisations you deal with. For example, a company may need a structure such as company, division, and branch – a three level hierarchy.
All the contacts that you add to the system, regardless of whether they are able to log into SmartSimple, are associated with a specific part of an organisation that may be either internal (to your company) or external (to another company).
If you enable the login feature when adding people then they will be able to log into the system and you can consider them users, otherwise they are simply contacts.
As part of the contact setup process, you assign people roles to define their access to system resources such as application programs, folders, calendars, or discussions. Peoples' roles also control the interface that they will see when they log into your copy of SmartSimple.
