We are doing an ERP upgrade of our financial system and therefore we need to prevent users to do any activity in one of our partitions during 3 days.
We considered a few options, but we didn't find anything satisfying:
- we cannot deactivate the users in the partition because we will still receive invoices and any new approval workflows will be replaced by customer admin instead of the correct users.
- we cannot block the access to the partition via our firewall because it would block the access to the other 3 partitions we still need to use.
Do you have any ideas or propositions that would help us? I would appreciate any proposition.
Right now, the best we have is to just send a mass communication to the users not to use the partition, rename the partition with a something that tells them not to use it, stop email notifications from this partition and put a message on the news box on the home tab.
thank you in advance.
If you haven't done so already, it's best to speak with your account team regarding these questions since every customer's situation may differ and there is no base functionality to randomly turn off access for a short period of time.
