You can now manage the user roles and control the access to dispense configuration in MANTIS from the User Management feature. By using this, you can keep the multiple users in your lab more organized, as each user will have their own dispense/protocol configuration, user name, and password. To enable this feature, you must set the User Control option under the Options menu to Enable.
Activating User Control From the Security Settings Under the Options Menu
When the User Control option is enabled, the MANTIS software will prompt you to login using your username and password. Then, you can access the User Management menustrip at the upper right corner of the MANTIS software window.

From there, you can use the user management feature as follows:
The User Management menu is only accessible to an administrator. In this menu, you can manage users as explained below.
For more information, see Setting Up and Managing Users.
User Management Window
Each user in the User Management window will be listed and labelled based on their role and status. There are four user statuses available.
The Role Management window is only accessible to an administrator. Here, you can assign or revoke access of the MANTIS software functionality for each role. You can also add, duplicate, rename, and remove the user role.
Role Management Window
There are three default user roles available in MANTIS: Administrator, Supervisor, and Operator. Each role has its own permissions that allow them to access different features in the MANTIS software. Even though you cannot change the permissions of the default user roles, you can add a new one or duplicate the existing role and define the permissions. For more information, see Managing the User Roles.
Important: The default user roles cannot be renamed and/or removed.
