User management

Users with the Account Primary profile can access the User management page to add users, reset a user's password, and edit or delete users.

To go to this page, select Menu icon > User management.

The user table lists all users in your account. You can sort the table by any column:

  • First Name
  • Last name
  • Username
  • Profiles – The number of profiles assigned to a user.

To view additional details about a user or manage the user, click the expand icon Expand icon in the Details column.

Find a user

To find a user easily:

  1. Click in the filter field above the user table to display the list of column headings.
  2. Select from the column headings list, then select the filter criterion.
    If the criterion list is long, type the first characters of the item you're looking for to filter the list. For example, to find user Grace Hopper, select Last Name, type h in the field, and continue typing the name until you see it in the table.
  3. Adding a criterion automatically displays the column list again so you can apply additional filters. Repeat step 2 as needed.

The user table is automatically filtered as you select each filter criterion.

To display the entire list again, click Clear next to the filter field.
