About User Rights and Available Functions
Access to functions in Serenata @mail depends on the access rights linked to the user ID with which you have logged in. Therefore, you may not be able to access all functions described here. In some cases, you will also not see them.
For instance, as a standard user, you will probably have access to the Message Monitor, Test Templates, the Manual Email option and Statistics, but not to the available Setup options. Therefore, the Setup options will not be available in the Serenata @mail screen, as in the below screenshot.
In a multi-property environment, supervisors will be able to see all available data sources (PMS), whereas the display will probably be limited to one source for front desk users.
As a rule, only the manager or supervisor of Serenata @mail will have access to ALL options. This includes the setup menu and all source-related setup options, i.e. Text Module Setup, Label Setup, Link Setup, and Image Setup.
Please check with your supervisor to inquire about your user rights within Serenata @mail.
You can exit Serenata @mail by closing the browser window in which you are viewing the application. However, if you want to log on with another user ID, it makes more sense to log out from the application without closing the windows.
Log out whenever you are away to prevent unauthorized people from accessing the system. If in doubt, please check with your IT security officer for corporate policies.
