System Management


In addition to the General Features common to all DOT V3 Packages, the System Management Module contains all of the System-Wide and Company Specific functions necessary to manage the DOT V3 environment. System-Wide functions, as the name implies, controls all information that is not specific to any one Company.

System-Wide Functions

Executable Locations

The Executable Programs can be located anywhere on the Network.  With this Function you define the network/directory path to each of the Executable Programs.  Normally, there is only one (1) copy of each Executable Program on the Network regardless of the number of Companies defined.

System Printers

There is no limit to the number of System and Local Printers supported.  System Printers may belocated anywhere on the Network. This function allows you to give descriptive names to each of the System Printers, specify it's characteristics, and specify it's network address.

System Security

In addition to maintaining User Passwords, functions are provided to monitor and maintain Program and User Security Levels. Separate Levels can be maintained for Add, Change, Delete, and Inquiry access.  An additional Security Level can be established at the individual Column (Field) with the use of the System Tools Module.

Company Specific Functions


Multiple Calendars may be setup and maintained.  These Calendars can be used to provide default data and otherwise control the validity of entered Dates.

Data Table Locations

Data Tables (Files) can be located anywhere on the Network.  With this Function you define the network/directory path to each of the Data Tables. In most Multi-User environments, only one copy of each Data Table is permitted for each Company.

Maintenance Audit Reports

When enabled from the System Tools Module, any maintenance driven changes to the selected Data Tables (Files) are automatically logged to an Audit Table. These Audit entries are at the Column (Field) level and contain: Date, Time, User ID, Program Name, Old data value, and New data value. Audit entries are retained until purged by the System Manager.

Package Defaults

A variety of Processing Options are available through maintaining Package Defaults.  These Options may be set differently for each Company on the system.
