Controlling the access to the Suggestion Module

The access to the suggestion module can be controlled via the new Workflows section and the All workflows subsection of the user group rights of crossTerm. You can give members of the corresponding user groups the right to make term suggestions and to adjust the status of term suggestions. Users with the right to adjust the status of term suggestions may further process term suggestions.

In addition to normal Across users, members of groups from Windows Active Directory can also be granted access to the crossTerm Web suggestion module. In this way, even people with no Across account can suggest terms.

In the properties of the user groups crossTerm Web read/write access and crossTerm Web read-only access, the desired Windows Active Directory groups can be determined in the AD groups tab. The members of the selected AD groups automatically have the rights for the access to the suggestion module of the respective crossTerm Web user group.

Tip

Members of an AD group who have access to the suggestion module merely need to select the Windows authentication type in order to log in to the suggestion module. They do not need to enter a user name and password.

Attention

The access of members of AD groups to the suggestion module or to crossTerm Web in general requires an Across license with single sign-on. If necessary, please consult your contact at Across Systems GmbH.

Members of AD groups with access to crossTerm Web that log in to the crossTerm Web suggestion module and for which users already exist under the same name in Across will appear twice in Across (e.g. in filters of crossTerm Web): Once as Across users and once as members of the respective AD group. It is therefore recommended that members of AD groups that have already been created as users in Across always log on with the Across user data in the suggestion module.

For the access to the suggestion module, Across users with Windows authentication must be members of a crossTerm Web group and must have the needed rights for creating suggestions within this group.

Localization and customizing of the suggestion module

The crossTerm Web suggestion module can be customized, both with respect to the texts and buttons it contains and with respect to the appearance.

The localization files of crossTerm Web also contain a string table with the texts of the crossTerm Web suggestion module that are displayed in the interface. If you wish, you can customize the texts.

Moreover, the appearance of the crossTerm Web suggestion module can be adapted to your individual needs. For this purpose, particularly the interface of the suggestion module can be individualized with the help of themes.

The web pages of the suggestion module comprise various areas whose appearance can be adjusted independently.
