vGIS Portal - Managing admins (KB-AP008)
The Administrators subcategory allows you to add, view, edit, and remove the profile of any administrator within your company.
For information regarding end-users/devices of the vGIS, please refer to Managing Devices.
Adding a New Admin
To add an admin user, click on the global "+" sign in the top left corner of the portal and select the Administrator option, or enter the Administrator subcategory in the left-hand menu and click the green Add Admin button on the top left-hand corner (Fig. 1).
Next, you will need to enter a first name, last name, and valid email address for the new admin user. Once these items have been entered, click the Save button in the lower right-hand corner.
The new admin will receive a welcome email with the necessary instructions to set up their account.
A user’s first name, last name, and email address can be edited by pressing the edit icon that is next to their name (Fig. 2)
Removing and Restoring Archived Admins
A user can be archived by pressing the “Archive” icon that is next to their name (Fig. 2). Please note: That any archived/deleted user’s information can still be accessed from the archive, by toggling the Show Archived switch.
To restore a user, toggle the Show Archived switch and press the “Restore” icon that is next to their name.
You can find a specific user from the user list by using the Search bar located next to the Add Admin button. The search bar uses a free-form search algorithm that allows you to find the desired user by typing in a part of their name.
The user database can also be sorted by clicking on the headers. This will arrange the user list by the selected header in either ascending or descending order.
