When your club was set up, a maintenance user would have been created with a last name of ' maint'. The schedules for this user will show up as red, indicating maintenance. This user can be used for all maintenance scheduling - manual and automated, or multiple maintenance accounts can be set up.
There are multiple options for authorizing users to schedule maintenance.
- Those scheduling maintenance can be given the login for the single maintenance user, or separate maintenance accounts can be set up so that each can have their own maintenance scheduling user. This is a good option for mechanics that are not scheduling the resources for personal use.
