  1. User Profile
  2. Adding a User
  3. Access Types
  4. Responsibilities

User Profile

To add a new user into LogAlto, your user profile must enable you to add users .

To check if you have this right, click on the Configuration wheel and you should be able to select the Users option.

If you do not have the option to select Users, that means you do not have user creation privileges.  

If you do not see that your profile has user creation access, you must ask the platform administrator to create the user needed.

Adding a User

To add a user click on the + sign next to "Users"

Once accessed to the User window, You will need to fill out certain information such as the user's email and Full name as well as assign the user a temporary password. 

You will then need to specify the access type of the user and their responsibilities. This will change depending on how your account is set up. 

It is recommended that you ask to reset the password after the first login for ease of use.

Access Types

In the top right corner you have the option to give the user access to All features or just Data collection

All features: It gives the user access to the different features in the system, the responsibilities will change depending on his user role.
