Users and Security

Learn how to easily control your staff's access to different parts of the software, as well as their ability to perform certain tasks. Add and adjust levels of security – give supervisors more access than employees, but less access than owners.

Please note: Because we are continually updating our library of training videos as new versions of our software are released, this video will likely show an older or newer version of StudioPlus Spectra/myStratus than you have installed. Don't worry! The video will still give you a great overview of this feature.
