    How to create an operator and give operator access to modules?


    1. System Administration > Security > Operator Profiles > New
      1. Fill in required information on Operator tab: First Name, Last Name, ID, Password.
      2. If you wish to force the operator to reset password the first time operator logs in, check "Expire password immediately"
      3. If you want the password to never expire (overriding any password expiration rules that have been set in Security Options), check "This password never expires"
      4. Save
    2. System Administration > Security > [Acquisitions/Serials / Circulation / Cataloging / Global Data Change] Profiles
      1. For any module operator needs access to, open corresponding set of Profiles.
      2. Choose a security profile with permissions & locations operator needs access to > Edit.
      3. Move operator from Available to Selected column in Operators tab.
      4. Save.

    An operator may belong to only 1 security profile per module
