- Go to the Data Access tab to choose the Installation(s), Location(s) and actor(s) that the new user should have access to. If the toggle Access to all (including future) under Locations and Actors is set to active, the user will automatically have access to any locations and actors added to your installation in the future.
- Under the Usage Profile tab, you can select the functionalities the new user should have access to. Click on each functionality to show all options and set the toggles to ON or OFF.
- Click Save when you are done with all settings. An email will be sent to the new user with a link to set a password. The link is valid for 3 days.
You can always edit existing users from the Customer Users page. Click on the user you want to edit and make the changes by going through their profile pages the same way as when you created the profile.
