In this article, you'll learn how to set up a new user and give them access to your site. It will also show you how to grant them security permissions and roles.
NOTE: This is accessible to admins only. Please contact an admin on your account to have them set this up.
Begin by clicking the small wrench on the left side of the page. Next find your parent company and select. You’ll then click the “Add User” button.
You’ll fill any information out here. The only required fields are first and last name, phone number, and login & contact email. This will send an email to the user so they can set up their account and password.
NOTE: If the user doesn’t need alarm notifications, you can click to the next screen.
Here, you can set the alarm notifications. To add a text message recipient, click the “Add Recipient” button.
Drop down the “Type” button and select Text. Add the number into the field and save. You can also add them to a notification list from here using the check option.
The next screen will allow you to choose the role for you user. Your user will be added to the default group automatically, but you can choose additional levels for your user, like view only for certain well or groups, administrative rights, or power user. Your groups and restrictions are dependent on your organization, so check with an administrator or eLynx support if you’re unsure. See the green text under each role for a better explanation of the role rights.
Lastly, the security tab will let you see the specifics of the security of the groups you’ve placed them into. Here, you can see the group ‘Acme Oil and Gas’ has these permissions.
If you want to change these, you’ll need to do so through the Security Permissions section (located under Administration Tab).
