System User Card


The System User Card gives users easy access to recent documents or contacts that they have created or their Sales Representative may have created. The card is also beneficial for Administrators by allowing them to monitor and view permissions of users based on UDFs. Additionally, there is a Notes tab and User Defined Fields can be added for holding additional information for individual users.
