    v1 v1  
     3= User administration = 
     5YAM will satisfy the needs of a large family, being able to handle 
     6upto 16 users, who can each have their own folders and configuration 
     7settings.  While starting YAM, you can say who you are and immediately 
     8use your own personal setup, making programs like MultiYAM become 
     9redundant.  Selecting the '''Settings/Users''' menu item brings you to the 
     10Users window. 
     13'''User name''' 
     14     This is the name of the user.  It will appear in the welcome 
     15     dialogue on startup, provided that at least two users are defined. 
     16     The active user appears highlighted. 
     18     Example:  Bill Brown 
     22     If you fill in this field, a password requester will appear on 
     23     startup if you present yourself as this user. 
     26'''Mail directory''' 
     27     This is the home directory for all user-specific files, such as 
     28     folders and configuration settings.  Obviously, this directory 
     29     must be different for any user in the system. 
     31     Example:  PROGDIR:bill 
     34'''Use global address book''' 
     35     Enable this option if the user won't be using his or her own 
     36     address book.  The address book is then shared with at least 
     37     the default user -- the file is kept in the program home 
     38     directory and not in the user's home directory. 
     41'''Use global glossary''' 
     42     Enable this option if the user will not maintain a separate 
     43     glossary but will instead share one with at least the default 
     44     user.  The file is kept in the program home directory and not 
     45     in this user's home directory. 
     48'''Supervisor privileges''' 
     49     Enable this option to allow the user to create or remove other 
     50     users. 
     53'''Copy configuration from current user''' 
     54     If you are adding a new user, you can select this option and copy 
     55     the current settings to the new user directory, thus saving the 
     56     new user some tedious work setting up a whole new configuration 
     57     from scratch. 
     60'''Add user''' 
     61     Adds a new user to the list. 
     64'''Delete user''' 
     65     Deletes the selected user from the list.
