How do I set up security starting with User IDs?

Use the System/User IDs window to assign IDs, passwords, and user names. Assigning User IDs and passwords gives you control over who has access to your books and allows users to customize certain ways the system behaves when they use it -- for example, whether the most recently selected company is opened automatically the next time that user logs in.

For more information at any field in the window, press F1: Help.
