The function of the PhonePad administrator is to look after the PhonePad system.  There is not really much to do for an administrator as PhonePad pretty much runs itself.  However, you may be required to perform the following tasks from time to time:

 

_bm0Add, edit and delete users.

_bm0Undelete messages for users.

_bm0Set the login mode - you would probably only ever do this once.

_bm0Remove unused messages from the system.  You would probably do this once a month.

_bm0Repair the database.  This is only necessary if errors occur in the database.  This would not normally happen but can occur if a user's computer crashes or they turn it off without shutting down Windows.

 

 

There is no special administrator login - any user can be nominated as an administrator.  This means that each administrator can have their own password.  

 

You will need at least one Administrator for PhonePad.  It is recommended that you have a minimum of two administrators.  In the event that one of the administrators is away for some reason (eg. sick) there will be someone around to perform administrative functions.

 

A default administrator login is created the first time PhonePad Admin is run.  The username is called Admin and the password is admin.  This is provided so that you can login to PhonePad Admin for the first time.  Once you have done this you should either delete this login and create your own with the Admin attribute set, or change the password.

 

If you accidentally close down PhonePad Admin with no administrators existing in the system, you will not be able to login to the PhonePad Admin application.  This means there will be no PhonePad administrators.  If this happens then contact us and we will help you fix the problem.
