When a user logs in to VirtualCallboard with his/her unique, encrypted username and password, VirtualCallboard searches its database for all calls, fittings, notes, reports, announcements, files, and other resources that are associated with that account. Username/Password Each user is able to change his/her own username or password whenever necessary to secure his/her accounts. Users should use strong passwords to increase the security of their accounts. User Level Each user is assigned a “user level” which determines what level of access he/she has to the different modules of the site. Personal/Contact Information Each user is able to make changes to personal information and contact information. The user also has control over who has access to his/her sensitive information. The user can choose to make certain telephone numbers or addresses public to the full company or they can keep them private so only his/her manager can access it. Emergency Contact Information Emergency contact names, phone numbers, relationships, and pertinent medical information such as a list of user’s allergies are collected for each user and are made available to managers and administrators.
VirtualCallboard is capable of managing multiple productions (groups of collaborators working on the same project) as well as multiple projects per production. VirtalCallboard silos the information in such a way that only users who are members of a specific production will see the relevant information about that project. This powerful implementation allows you to use one VirtualCallboard account to manage an entire season of productions, whether you use the same group of collaborators or an entirely different group for each project.
VirtualCallboard Professional and VirtualCallboard Unlimited allow you to keep online archives of all your internal organization records. These records can be easily accessed at any time by managers and site administrators. You can also quickly and easily make a digital export of all your data from a deactivated production. This gives you extra peace of mind, knowing that a hard copy is just minutes away.
