Required Fields Permission

The Required Fields module can be turned on or off for the property under the Property Permissions tab in System Configuration. If the Setup Required Fields module does not appear under the System Configuration menu of the PMS, it may either not be enabled for the property, or it may not be enabled for the current user.  The following article explains how to manage access to the Required Fields module.

Required Fields User Permission

Once the permission is enabled for the property, access to edit the Required Field module can be restricted for all three user roles; Owner (Administrator), Clerk, or Accountant.

Proceed to System Configuration > Clerks. Select the desired user (ensure the black arrow is pointed toward their name) and proceed to the Permissions tab.

The permission 1547, Set Required Fields is found under the Operations list of permissions.

When the permission is Given, the user will have access to the Required Fields module, and can make changes to which fields are required. When the permission is Taken, the user will not have access to edit the Required Fields module, but will still be subject to the rules set, and will continue to be prompted for the set Required Fields when making reservations.

When making changes to a user's access, remember to click Post to save them when done.
