Admin Tool

The Admin Tool provides PCPACK5 with the functionality for network operation. Hence, it allows knowledgebases to be stored and accessed by multiple users over a network.

The Admin Tool is used to:

  • Define the people who can use PCPACK5 and their roles
  • Control the login details of users
  • Create and delete knowledgebases
  • Define the access rights of each user/role to a knowledgebase
  • Create new versions of a knowledgebase
  • Backup, restore, archive and unarchive knowledgebases
  • Check-out and check-in knowledgebases
  • View published webs
  • Open and close knowledgebases
  • Launch PCPACK5 tools
  • Display reports of knowledgebase usage, roles and users
