How to set or edit Reports User Permissions

 In Tips

In version 8.6.2 of  Migration Manager additional user permissions were added to allow administrators to have a micro control over which reports users can generate.

This article is reproduced from the user manual.

In order to be able to generate a Report, a User must have been set to have permission to generate the particular report in question. To set the Reports User Permissions, follow these steps:

Note: By default users are given permission to generate all reports.

1. Log in as Administrator

To access the Reports Permission you will need to log in as Administrator or as a user who has been set as having permission to edit user credentials and permissions.


2. Open the Preferences/Permissions window

To access and edit the User Report Permissions, click the ‘Tools‘ button in the top toolbar and then click ‘Administative‘, then ‘Preferences‘.


Now go to the Report Permissions tab.


3. Set the User Permissions

Within the User Permissions tab, it is possible to set which user has the permission to generate which reports.


Tip: If you right click a row a menu option will appear that will you tick or untick all items for a user in one action.


3.1 Allow Access to Reports

This setting determines whether a User can access and produce any of the reports in Migration Manager. If the box is unticked then the user will be unable to generate any of the reports

3.2 Allow Access to User Defined Reports

If this setting is not ticked, then a User can not generate any Preset Reports.

  • Time Billing Detail
  • Fee Earner Performance Report
  • Incomplete Time Billing Entries
  • Billing Receipts by Staff Member

All of the remaining settings control whether the user can generate a specified Accounts or System Report.
