Using VSP in Read-only mode
If you would like someone to have access to VSP so they can run reports, print schedules, and send emails but you don't want them to be able to change any existing information, you can set up their installation to be "Read-only." By doing so, you allow them to access the key features of the program but you avoid the risk of your database being compromised.
- Open up your copy of VSP, and click on the Subscription pane - it's the last option on the left-hand side of VSP's main screen.
- Click on the "Yes" next to the text "This computer can change data" in the middle of the screen.
3. In the new dialog that pops up, select the option that says "Only allow this computer to view data, send emails, and run reports; not change data". You will need to input the administrator's password and click "OK".
NOTE: VSP users operating in "Read-only" mode will be able to change information while inside of VSP, however, the changes will not be saved. Absolutely no changes to volunteers, jobs, shift times or open schedules will ever be recorded.
