What is the Control Panel?

The Control Panel is at the heart of PLANERGY functionality and security. This is where you can configure the system to your needs and control what can be done in the system and who can do it. For example, from the Control Panel you can carry out actions such as setting the department budgets, managing your approved vendor list and setting the permissions of individual users.

A user assigned with the default role, System Admin, will administration permissions to access all sections of the Control Panel. Depending on their administration permissions other users may have access to only certain sections of the Control Panel. Administration permissions can be assigned differently for each user in the system. To go to the Control Panel press the Control Panel button on the Home page or the Control Panel menu option in the Main Menu (Figure 1). If you do not see these options you do not have the correct user permissions to access to the Control Panel.
