ImageDirector System Setup (System Administrators Only)

The ImageDirector customization options available to a user depend on the permission settings for the user logged in. For the purpose of simplicity this guide will assume the user is the primary site administrator and has full access to all ImageDirector features available.


To access the configuration options, select the “System Setup” option from the navigation menu on the left. The options available are as follows:

Configuration Options
This page allows you to enable or disable various ImageDirector features across an entire site. Simply check those features you would like to be available then choose “Save Configuration” to make your alterations permanent. For more detailed information about what each feature means, please consult the Privilege Settings section below.


Disabling a feature from this page will automatically remove that feature for all ImageDirector users/groups except administrators. If you decide to enable the feature again at a later date, you will need to go to Privilege Settings in order to reactivate the functionality for those who previously had access to it. If a feature is disabled from within the Configuration Options page, it will no longer appear as an option under Privilege Settings.


If you are an administrator but do not see the Configuration Options choice in your System Setup menu, you may enable this function from the “My Profile” page..


Privilege Settings (Roles)
With Privilege Settings administrators define which features are available to each privilege level. New privileges can be opened and existing ones can be changed. For security reasons, it is not possible to delete an existing privilege.  Note: The saving process of the privilege settings can take several minutes.


The first privilege is the top level administrator that has access to all functions that are turned on for your ImageDirector. Functions marked with a red checkbox cannot be deactivated for this level.


For all other privileges, any feature listed may be enabled or disabled. Simply check off those functions you would like to be available to each privilege level, then click the save button at the bottom.


Each group may contain separate privilege settings. To change the group use the drop down menu at the top of your screen. To add a new privilege level to the current group, enter the name beside “New Privilege”, then click the add button..
