The lists below outline the steps to set up Access ACS. As an administrator, you must complete all the steps in the following order.
Before You Begin
Before you begin setting up Access ACS, install the Microsoft .NET runtime and ActiveX controls, then sign in to Access ACS.
Setting Up Global Preferences
Next, it's time to set up global preferences, such as personal and community calendars, if you want to use them. You can also set up the administrator e-mail address, which receives e-mails when users within your organization report problems. Next, set up your online directory preferences, including the information that displays in online directories.
Setting Up Your System
Now, you can set up leadership positions, user profiles and users, group names, groups, small groups, and small group categories. You can also set up calendar locations and types, if you are using the built-in Access ACS calendar.
