Change a user code

You can change a user's login name.This can be necessary, for example, because the organisation has expanded and you want to use other codes, or because you want to perform a correction to a specific code.

You can also use this method if you switch to AFAS Online.


This change is not implemented in the logging.

It is recommended that you do not change the code of a user who has added a workflow or who has a task in a workflow. If it is necessary to change a user code, it is recommended you block the old code and add a new code.

You can also change the Code with Import Users.

To change the code of a user:

  1. Go to: General / Management / Authorisation tool.
  2. Go to the tab:User maintenance.
  3. Go to: User / Change code...
  4. Select the user code.
  5. Enter the new code in to this code:. The user should from now on use this user code to log on.
