Assigning persons to person groups

Identification media are linked to people. As a rule, you will also create a person who owns a identification medium when you create it.

You need to specify a person group as soon as you add a person. Ideally, you should follow best practice (see Best practice: setting up the locking system) and plan everything out ready before creating your persons (see Organisational structure). This means that you only need to open windows once.

Obviously, you can also move your persons to another person group at a later point in time.

Assign a number of persons/identification media to person group (in the person group window)

Suitable for moving a number of persons into a few different person groups:



Maximum one area per locking device

A locking device can only belong to one single area. There are no overlapping areas in the AXM Classic . If you assign a different area to a locking device, this locking device may be automatically removed from its existing area.

  1. You can use the Area - Details column in the Area - Details window to check whether a locking device has already been assigned to an area.

Person groups have no influence on authorisations

Authorisations are not directly linked to person groups. If a person is moved to a different person group, the change does not affect authorisations initially. However, person groups are a useful tool for changing authorisations more quickly.

  1. Use person groups to add people to authorisation groups more quickly (see Adding areas and person groups to authorisation groups).
