This article regards the Access control subsection of the Edit users option. To access the available options on the Access control subsection, you need to edit a user.
This is the Access control subsection panel for the edition of users:
The panel contains the following main fields:
|Type of user||This is a quick fill-in mode. You can choose between Normal user and Administrator user. With this quick fill-in, you will not have to to tick or untick every single node of the access tree since it will be filled automatically according to typical permissions for both types of users, Normal users and Administrators.|
These fields represent the Access Control tree and this is where you can specify in detail which areas of Frotcom you want a particular user to access. Have in mind that only areas/modules subscribed by your company will be selectable.
The Old version subsection refers to the permissions applicable to the old version of Frotcom, also designated as Frotcom Silverlight. This subsection will be deprecated when the Silverlight version is definetely phased out.

Let's just look at an example, the Access control tree's Report field,
There are two sub-fields (Generate reports and Send report by email). The first is checked and the second is unchecked. So, the user will be able to Generate reports but not to send them via email.
If you wish to give this user Send report by email permission, just tick the desired sub-field.
Additionally, if you wish to remove an already granted permission to a particular user, just uncheck (remove mark) the desired sub-field.
Finally, if you wish to give all the permissions provided by a single field (e.g. reports) just tick the field and, automatically, all the linked sub-fields will be selected.
On the other side, the following options will always be available to all the users, independently of their permissions:
- Map page
- Nearest vehicles
- Fleet mode
- Vehicle/path mode
- CANBus data
- Save user own profile
By default, a maximum of 5 users can be created for each company. If you try to create a 6th, there will be a message saying the maximum number of users was reached. In special cases in which you may need to create more than 5 users per company, contact your Frotcom Certified Partner.
After you are done with all the desired modifications, make sure you click the Apply button, on the bottom of the panel so that Frotcom takes your changes into account:
