Dear Siva,

Thanks for responding to my query. 
The status is that I already activated the financial modules and there I have no problems. My problem is in setting up users and giving them the right permissions and access to the things that matter. For example i would like to differentiate between the accountant and assistant accountant, the cashiers, the internal auditor, the hospital administrator, etc. Maybe I am too dumb but I think the process is not straight forward.
Do you have suggestions?

Dear Chris,
I assume you are trying to activate the financial modules along with the GNU Health. GNU Health is build over tryton ERP framework, and therefor you can use any modules that comes with tryton for your task. By default, GNU Health ships with a set of basic financial modules which can be easily installed from the Administration->Modules

For usage about individual modules, you could refer to the tryton documentation

Message-ID: <address@hidden>

Hi All,

Please help and guide me how I can quickly configure financial and
administration staff (users).

My scenario is like this, the hospital I am setting up has a system
that was mainly used by the Finance and administration departments,
Accountants, Cashiers, Storekeepers, Hospital Administrator, Clerks,
Pharmacy, etc, more than the Medical Staff; Doctors, nurses, lab, etc.
Now we are replacing it with Gnuhealth which is to be used by all
departments. Whereas in Gnuhealth the medical professionals are kind of
pre-configured and easy to setup, the same is not true for the
financial and administration professionals and other non-medical
workers, who will have access and use the system.

My challenge is to set up these people and give them and adjust their
permissions and access levels from time to time; I have not found a
straight forward process. My imagination of an easy and straight
forward system would be for example, a wizard where, I choose User >
create > select user type > Administrative > user position > Accountant
> assign access/roles > confirm > save, .... and so on for all the
other categories and positions, internal auditor, cashier, data clerk,
storekeeper, etc.

Is something like that possible? Is it there already and I have just
missed it? If it is not there, how can I do it and after I have left
and they are working on their own, how can they setup these users
without needing to call me back? In principle, I am looking for a "user
setup for dummies" kind of process; simple and basic but accurate,
especially in terms of permissions, roles and responsibilities.

Would the same be possible for the chart of accounts, where none is
provided for my country and I have to build it from the ground up?

I hope my question is clear.

Thanks for your help.
