Registering and Changing Administrators

If administrator authentication is specified, we recommend only one person take each administrator role.

Sharing administrator tasks facilitates each administrator's tasks while also preventing unauthorized administrator operations. You can register up to 4 login user names (Administrators 1-4) to which you can grant administrator privileges.

An administrator's privileges can only be changed by an administrator with the relevant privileges.

Be sure to assign all administrator privileges so that each administrator privilege is associated with at least one administrator.

For details about logging in and logging out with administrator authentication, see Administrator Login Method and Administrator Logout Method.
