The Flash user administration helps you manage which employees are allowed to have access to the Flash system data. The Flash system data supplies protel Air with the hotel's fundamental data (e.g., rooms, rates, items, etc.). In the further course of development, the Flash system data will be eventually implemented into HTML5 client. Until the end of this implementation phase, you will be managing your protel Air system data mainly in Flash-Client.

When creating  a new HTML5 user, the corresponding Flash user is automatically created. The Flash user is needed to control your employee's access to certain system data areas.

For security reasons, newly created Flash users DO NOT have access to the Flash system data.

Therefore, if the user is to have access to the system data, you have to assign the relevant user rights. To do so, log into protel Air as an administrator and open the user administration (System data > System > User management (Flash)). Then assign the desired rights to the user.

-> See the following section

All other privileges that you can suspend in the Flash User Administration, are IRRELEVANT for working in the HTML5 client!
