Cardholder Templates

Cardholder Templates

The Doors.NET system uses the concept of of templates to facilitate repetitive data entry when creating a new cardholder record. These templates can be changed to suit your preferences. For example, a template can be assigned a certain access group, or groups so that any new block-enrolled cards (enrolled with that template) will all be automatically assigned the same access rights.
