Behind the user environment lie the tools that make VIEWpoint such
an easy and flexible system to use and control.
Local utilities provide the system administrator with the ability
to add information providers, to add system users and to monitor
database usage - both by on-line enquiry and off-line audit trail
Information providers may add, change, delete or price data frames
using the Frame Manager and amend screen displays by using the
powerful Interactive Editor. The display editor is fully WYSIWYG
and incorporates a block-move facility which enables frame to frame
copying, within-frame copying and input/output to external files.
Authorised VIEWpoint users may communicate with the administrator
or with other users by means of a useful 'Electronic Mail'
facility. Mail recipients can be notified of all unread messages
they have received when they enter the system and mail - once read
- may be deleted, forwarded or retained for future reference.
