With the Allowed access option you can give limited access to some users. For example some users might have access to only one application (e.g. Quickbooks) while others might have access to a full desktop session. By default users will receive a full desktop.

Checking the Administrator option will let the user install and remove applications and see other users files under the Cloud Computer.

Auto-login will generate a unique encrypted URL link that can be used to view the desktop instantly in a browser without entering any password. Only recommended for public system demonstrations.

Send credentials by Email will automatically send an email to the user with his password and login instructions.
