Light timer button on Dashboard

Post by PDP8 » Tuesday 31 July 2018 19:59

Hello everyone,

Can anyone tell me how I can get the light timer button on the Dashboard?
This picture is under the switches, there you can see the Timers.
But viewed on the Dashboard there are no Timers...

Any workaround? Or an alternative timer setup to get the light timer on the dashboard?

Oh and I want users to set the Timers without Admin rights. How?

Well that answer is at least more information then I got a year ago :lol:
viewtopic.php?f=47&t=17558

In my opinion this is really a shortcoming in Domoticz.
There are three rights levels: Viewer, User, Admin

In my opinion it should be like this:

- the Viewer can't change anything, just examine.
- the User should have the rights to change timers and values, toggle switches etc...
- the Admin has full blown options to add or remove hardware, give permissions etc...

But now I have to give a user the Admin rights to change the time of turning on a lamp?
And that isn't even accessible from the dashboard which should have all the main features to use the system?

Sorry, it really doesn't make sense to me... I hope someone can make an update for this...

Does anyone have suggestions to edit or add user levels?
How do I add user levels myself?

Answers like 'You can't' are unfortunately not very helpful..
There must be a way. And if this is on programming level
it would be a great help is anyone at least could tell me
where this is arranged in the code...

If even I could create an Admin-like account without
showing the setup menu, would be great.
