The chosen company is not in the allowed companies for this user

We need to create multiple users within several companies. When I select another company rather than "Your company", I receive this error : "The chosen company is not in the allowed companies for this user"

Any idea?

I didn't see this field! Thanks !!

Easy, setup the companies for the ones the user is allowed to work with. Go to Settings/Users and select the user you need to configure, press Edit button, go the Access Rights tab and add the companies from the Allowed Companies dropdown box

Here is a screen capture of the user form where you can configure it.

Hello... I have just installed OpenERP server but I don't see "Allowed Companies" configuration in Access Rights tab.

You will need to go into the user settings for your admin user and check the box for 'multi companies' under 'usability'.

My question is irrelevant, but how did you insert the image in your answer using the data url ? I tried to do the same unsuccessfully. Is this because of low karma?
