About Users Management

Clicking on User management, then Employees allows you to have an overview of the employees currently created on the platform.

From the dashboard you will see both the list and the number of Active (mceclip0.png), Pending (mceclip1.png) and Archived (mceclip1.png) accounts.

Accounts on the platform must have the following information, as they are required (mceclip0.png) when creating an account.

NB: Please note that the labels of the mandatory fields MUST be exactly as shown below as the User Management module is case sensitive. We advise to copy/paste the labels from the table below in order to avoid misspelling errors.

Label Description
First name This field should contain the first name of the employee you are adding the account for.
Last name This field should contain the last name of the employee you are adding the account for.
Email

This field should contain the email address of the employee you are adding the account for.

NB: The email address must be a unique value, the system does not allow two accounts to share the same email address.

External ID

If you have SSO integration, this field will have to be populated with the SSO name. To know more about SSO, please read here.

NB: All the above fields are mandatory, you will not be able to proceed in adding the account if you don't fill them out.

About Account statuses

ACTIVEmceclip0.png 
When an account is Active it means that the employees has already accessed the portal and has completed the account activation process.
PENDINGmceclip1.png 
When an account is Pending it means that the account has been added to the portal, but the employee hasn't logged in yet.
 

NB: Accounts that were have been un-archived, will be initially set to Pending (mceclip1.png) until the employee follows the First time login process. To know more about how to activate an account, please read here.

ARCHIVEDmceclip1.png 

When an account is Archived (mceclip1.png) it means that the account has been soft deleted, so the employee will not be able to access the portal and this account will not be included in the data completion of a campaign.

This soft deletion is reversible. To know how to unarchive an account, please read here.

About Attributes

Attributes are criterion that may be used as scoping values for groups. These are place holders for further information (other than the required information listed above), this information could be used to scope groups and consequently scope campaigns. 

Attributes are required to have an Attribute name and, depending on the type of attribute, values.

 

Types of Attributes

The types of attributes depend on the values one wants to set up for the attributes.

For example, is the attribute name is Is Manager then the values could be either Yes or No. In this case the recommended type of attribute would be the Options (mceclip5.png).

There are different types of attributes that can be set up on our system, please find more details below.
