Working with the User Interface
EMu's User Interface was extensively redesigned with version 6.0. In this section of the Help the new interface is described in detail. For a quick overview of the interface update, check out the Release Notes.
There are several ways to access an EMu system. Various online and mobile applications interface with EMu to perform specific tasks (rapid data entry, location moves, for instance) and, in the near future, web access to almost every aspect of your EMu system will be available. At the moment however, the most comprehensive access to an EMu system is provided by a rich and intuitive graphical user interface (GUI): the EMu desktop client.
With the desktop GUI, users open modules from the Command Centre. Each module opens in its own window. Users can open any number of modules, including multiple copies of the same module (two or more Parties modules for instance). In a module window, users can search, display, report, sort, group, add and amend data within that module, all actions and access to data subject to a user’s security profile.
What is a security profile?
Access to every aspect of EMu is determined by the permissions assigned to a user and / or the groups to which the user belongs. When a user logs in to EMu all of the permissions assigned to that user are assessed and the system is customised accordingly. For instance, certain modules can be made available to some users and not others; some tabs and fields can be made available to some users and hidden from others; some functionality (deleting records for instance) can be available to some users and not others, and so on.
The Permissions model is described in detail in the Administration section of the Help.

Tip: The User Interface can be customised in a variety of ways from the Options box.
