How Do Accesses and Rights Define What Users Can Do in Daktela?

How Do Accesses and Rights Define What Users Can Do in Daktela?


Accesses define:

  • which modules users with those Accesses can go to in the Daktela GUI (and via the API).

  • users' Create/Read/Update/Delete permissions for items contained in those modules.

The CRUD permissions for a module are not necessarily linked to access to that particular module. A user may e.g. not have access to the CRM but have read permission. As result, they can see CRM data in activities and in other modules where they do have access if the data is displayed there, e.g. Listings.


Rights define:

  • what specific items users with those Rights can see in the modules they have access to. E.g. users that have access to the CRM module need to also have rights to the CRM Database the CRM data is contained in to see it.

  • if they have create and edit permissions in Accesses, what data they can select in the details of items. E.g. users that have edit access to Tickets need to have Rights to the ticket's Category to see and open it. If they want to pass the ticket on to another user, they need to have Rights to that user.

  • for queues, Rights also define which ones users can log in and out of.

The diagram shows the relationship between Accesses and Rights. You can zoom in and out using ctrl/cmd + mouse wheel.

  2. Enable or disable Call pickup. Rights that have this option turned on can accept activities which are already ringing at another agent using Waiting activities (except if Login type – None is selected).

  3. Select a Priority for the right from the drop down list in each queue.

  4. Select the Login type. There is description of the type on the right hand side directly in Daktela.

Go to Manage → Queues  to set up your queues.

Ticket columns

Check the ticket columns that the right's users should see in their list of tickets.

If you want to hide the column on certain display sizes such as tablets and mobiles, check the appropriate column.


  1. Check the ticket categories that users with this right can work with

  2. Access: if you want agents to see the category's tickets, toggle Access to Yes. Users with no access can use the category – e.g. create a ticket in the category – but they will not see the ticket once it is saved.

  3. Distribution: when a ticket with no assigned user is created in the category, you can choose when do distribute it to agents that use this right. Select the maximum number of tickets that an agent can have in order for the ticket to be assigned to them. If several agents use this right, the ticket will be assigned to the one with the fewest tickets in the category. If all agents have more than the selected number of tickets, distribution will stop and restart once at least one agent's ticket number drops below the selected number. Select None to disable automatic ticket distribution.

The category needs to be selected in an email queue for ticket distribution to work. Tickets are automatically distributed only to agents that are logged in to that queue.

Go to Manage → Tickets → Categories to set up your categories.
