User (Settings)


user preferences


In EULANDA® you can define authorizations down to field level. Setting these permissions is similar to assigning the permissions of your operating system's Active Directory, but more complex. This protection is comprehensive and also prevents access from external applications such as Excel, Access, etc. You set these authorizations directly in the SQL server and EULANDA® evaluates these settings accordingly.

However, in order to offer simple integrated protection without familiarizing oneself with the complex authorization structure of the SQL server, EULANDA® offers the possibility to switch menu items, information systems, sections, etc. on or off by simply clicking on them.

The user settings described here can be defined globally, that is, for all users, but also user-related, by defining exceptions.

Global authorizations

These changes apply to all users, except administrators.

Select ".ALLUSER" from the selection box. By default, all menu items are visible for each user. This is indicated by a grey box.

You can now change this default case by excluding certain menu items, information systems or entire sections of the quick start bar. To do this, click on the box. Non-visible functions are then marked with a red cross.

Save the changes with the "Apply" button. The new settings are only active after the program has been restarted.

All visible

Click on the"All visible" button to make all entries visible for the selected user, i.e. to activate them, regardless of the global default setting.

Hide all

The "Hide all" button locks all program items for the user, regardless of the global setting. You can then release individual functions.

All standard

The button "All default" removes all exceptions for the selected user. This means that the user automatically uses all global settings.

Special users

The".ALLUSER" user contains default settings that apply to all users, unless exceptions have been defined for the individual users. This user can be compared with the user of the same name of the Windows© XP operating system.

The".DEFAULT" user is a user template. Each new user logged on to the system is first copied the settings stored for the special user".DEFAULT". This user can be compared with the user of the same name of the Windows© XP operating system.

Elements and sections

The authorization box allows the selection of menu items of the quick start bar. Here, complete sections, for example the "Master Data" area, or individual modules within the section can be blocked.


You can lock individual reports for users.


The settings can be completely locked under Quick Launch Bar. However, it makes sense to release certain index cards. For example, it is certainly important to block the tab that sets the permissions, while the tab with the user color setting should be accessible to all users.

Menu items

Special menu items that do not fall under the elements of the Quick Launch bar can be locked here. These are currently the phrase functions.

Information system

Each information system can be locked individually. Especially information systems allow a quick overview of the system. Data that is important to you can thus be made inaccessible to certain users.

Go to

In the program modules articles, addresses, order etc. you can jump to connected operations by pressing the key Ctrl+G or by clicking on the going man in the toolbar
where all linked data are displayed, which you can select from there.

The individual links, that is, the jump targets, can be restricted using authorizations.

Short info tapes

The short information on articles, addresses, etc., which can be activated via View, contain various links depending on the data set and display this information in sections (=tapes). Each tape can be locked user-specifically.

User-specific authorizations

In this example, the user"mela0" was given the authorization to access the text module despite a global lock. However, the substitute administration was also blocked for him. All other settings have been applied globally.

User-dependent setting

This means that you can unlock a globally locked point for a specific user. To do this, click on the box several times for the selected user until a green box appears. The colored contents of the box clearly indicate whether there is an exception to the global setting.

Other users

For optimization reasons, only the logged on user is displayed in the user selection. If you as administrator want all users to be displayed in the selection, you must start EULANDA® as administrator and have activated the extended administrator mode. To do this, call EULANDA® and select the option "Open client as..." in the green start menu with the right mouse button above the client entry...

Start client as administrator

The alternative authorization is queried in a password box.

Password request

First enter the name of the SQL administrator in the password box; this is usually the user"sa". If you have not assigned a special password, the administrator has no password. To instruct EULANDA® to retrieve all user data from the SQL server, you must select the option "Administrator Mode".

You can then select all users in the"Permissions" settings. Depending on the number of users, the program may take up to several to start.

Copy user rights

You can copy permissions you have created for a user to other users by
going to the permission settings and clicking "Copy to...". Then select a user to whom you want to transfer the authorizations of the current client.

Copy authorizations


Settings for operation

Information system as free window

If the ROLLEN key is active (usually between the PRINT key and PAUSE key on the keyboard), the information system window is opened as a separate window (technical term: non-modal). This means you can move the information system to the page and switch back to the main window without closing the information system. This can be helpful, for example, if you want to carry out extensive research and do not want to call up the information system every time. This behaviour can be deactivated under Settings/Operation.

Context-sensitive input fields

This function displays suggestions under the search field for each search, which can be selected with a click or the Enter key. This facilitates the search for data.

Help text in input fields

The help text"Enter search text" is displayed in each input field. If this is not desired, this can be deactivated.

Browser automatically on more than one hit

If this option is selected (default for new installation), the browser (list view) is automatically displayed if more than one data record is found.

ENTER key accepts data set

For example, when you select articles in the positions within the browser (list display), the selected article is copied directly as a new position.

Memorize article hit list when creating item

This is an experimental function to jump directly back to the last set of hits instead of returning to the search mode after creating an article from a set of hits.

After saving a data record in the new creation mode remain

As soon as a data set has been saved, the Eulanda does not jump into the search mode, but remains in the data set and is again in the editing mode.

Security queries

The inadvertent deletion of an order, an order or an offer can be prevented by a separate confirmation prompt. A dialog box appears in which the user must enter the word"DELETE" letter by letter before the data record is deleted. Another confirmation prompt is displayed when you are editing an item and jump to the header.


Driver Selection

In EULANDA® documents can be sent by e-mail. Two models are supported for transmission.

Shipping via MAPI

Microsoft has created a very versatile e-mail interface in MAPI, which is also supported by other communication software manufacturers, such as Lotus. In EULANDA® you can use this interface directly. Further information about MAPI is not necessary, since all settings are taken over by the operating system.

Shipping via SMTP

If you prefer to use the native SMTP protocol for email transport, you can also set this communication path.

In contrast to MAPI, some minimum specifications must be made here. With SMTP, the mails are transmitted via a mail server, which forwards them to the actual target address. This mail server always depends on your access provider to whom you log on to the Internet. If you log in via T-Online, the name of the mail server is"". Ask your Internet access provider for other mail servers.

T-Online normally uses your T-Online address as the sender address, regardless of what you set here. The new mail server "" is now available at T-Online. However, this must be explicitly enabled on the T-Online website.

The sender address is usually identical to the reply address. Enter your personal e-mail address here. If you want the recipient to send an e-mail to another address when replying to an e-mail, you can use a different e-mail address as the reply address. This could be useful if you are working in a group with different colleagues and want any responses to go back to the group and not to you personally.

Some SMTP mail systems do not process the umlauts correctly or do not evaluate the code pages. Therefore, you can alternatively convert all umlauts before sending the email. ä" then becomes "ae" etc.

Unlike MAPI, you have no inbound and outbound journals when sending using SMTP. Errors can only be evaluated if they occur during direct communication with the registered mail server.

The Global E-Mail Signature

Define signatures

In the current version you have the possibility to store your own e-mail signature in the EULANDA settings.
