1C:Enterprise is a universal software system that is intended to automate enterprise accounting, planning, and management, as well as to solve personal tasks.
1C:Enterprise operation is divided into two time-spaced parts: setup (configuration development) and user work (accounting or calculation operations).
Configuration development. At the configuration development stage, an application is developed in compliance with the enterprise specifics. This includes the design of object structure and ways for viewing the objects, interface design, and the design of available user rights.
For information about configuration development, see 1C:Enterprise 8.3.
This stage also includes administrative routines: user list maintenance, infobase parameter setup, event log customization, configuration update, and more.
User work. Users work with infobases in 1C:Enterprise mode. This is when the software actually operates to accomplish its goals: data input, report generation, scheduled calculations, and so on.
The user works with the data whose structure is described in the configuration. At the same time, they use the algorithms created during the configuration step.
This Manual provides a general description of user work with 1C:Enterprise: entering and viewing data, obtaining reports, customizing the interface, and so on. For the description of user operations with application-specific objects, see the application help. For information about accessing the application help, see chapter "" on page .
