Password Protection


Password protection enables you to restrict unwanted access to your

valuable data. Quantech Software has given you the tools you need to

password protect your Q-F&I database application. Here’s how...



Single User Version



STEP ONE - From your home page, click on the

“Admin.” Tab at the bottom. This brings you to the “Access Control”

panel. For a single user version of the application you need only set

the “User Password”. The “Admin Password” and the “Price Access List”

are relevant only to the multi user versions of the software. (see

below) The user password can be set to prevent anyone from accessing

the program.



STEP TWO - Click on the “Change” button

beside “User Password”. A window will appear entitled “Set User

Password”



STEP THREE - Enter your password in “New

Password” field and repeat in “Confirm New Password” field. Click Okay

to save password. You will now be required to enter your password every

time you activate the program. **Remember to put your password

somewhere safe as the program will not track it for you.**



STEP FOUR - To change password, repeat the

above steps with the exception that you will be asked to enter your old

password first before you can change it.



*Remember to exit out of Quantech F&I when you

are away from your computer in order to reactivate the security

feature to request password.



Multi User Version



STEP ONE - From your home page, click on the

“Admin.” Tab at the bottom. This brings you to the “Access Control”

panel. You have 3 task options to choose from. “User Password”, the

“Admin. Password” and the “Price Access List”.



“User Password” can be set to prevent anyone from accessing the program. See above instructions.



The “Admin Password” is used to restrict

certain users from accessing sensitive information such as unit

pricing, profit reports or export functions.



The “Price Access List” is a list of users

with access to the full program, including all pricing information and

reports. To change this list an Admin Password is required. This

feature is only available in a networked, multi-user environment. This

feature can be used on a single computer, but only if different users -

each with different user accounts - are used to log on to this

computer.



User Password – Click on the Change button,

enter and confirm your password. The password is now needed to access

the program. To remove the password, click on the Change button and

delete the password. Leaving the password blank will allow anyone

access to the program.



Admin Password – Click on the Change button,

enter and confirm your password. An Admin password is required to

change the Price Access List.



Price Access List – Click on the Change

button, enter the Admin Password. This gives you access to a list.

Enter the User Name for each user that has access to the full program.

The User name for each user can be found on the Home Page. Enter the

User Name EXACTLY as it is shown on the Home page. Any user who’s User

Name is not on the list will have restricted access only. To open the

program to anyone, remove all names from the list and remove the admin

password.



Please keep your passwords in a safe place as Quantech does not remember the password for you.
