User Profile

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

To check if you may add users, click on the Settings wheel in the top right menu, then click on the Users option.

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

If you do not have user creation capabilities, seek the platform administrator to create new users.

The creation of a user requires the following information :

The following options are also accessible :

  • Reset password at next login
  • Receive email notifications : If checked, notifications will be sent to the user's email.
  • Filtering preferences : This will apply a default in certain modules based on your platform's configuration.
