Create a New Security Level - in Tally.ERP 9

Security Controls

Security control is an essential part of any organisation, without which an employee may be performing a number of non-essential tasks, for example: a data entry operator could create Masters, view the Trial Balance, Final Accounts, Ratio Analysis or delete essential information etc.,

Security controls need to be defined based on the work profile of an employee. Typically, in an organisation the administrator has all the access rights to the system, whereas the employees are given access rights based on their work profile demonstrating segregation of duties.

Types of Security Levels

By default Tally.ERP 9 has two levels of Security namely Owner and Data Entry.

Owner - The owner has full access rights which will enable him to work with all the features of Tally.ERP 9, except for Tally Audit and Company Alteration which are reserved for the Administrator. Based on pre-defined security levels the Administrator can create other security levels and assign or restrict access based on the requirement.

Data Entry - Data Entry has restricted access but the administrator can assign or restrict the access based on the requirement.

Create a New Security Level

Creating a new security level is a two step process which involves the creation of an Administrator Login and then creation of the users.
