Virtual Users

Virtual users are like regular users except they don't have logins and hence cannot login to Celoxis. Virtual users are free. Some use-cases are non-human resources like machinery, conference rooms and computers. Virtual users can also be used in instances where you want to assign tasks to that person but do not want to give access to the system. E.g. consultants.
