This procedure describes how to add one user at a time. To add multiple users, see Import users.
Add a new SuperOffice CRM user
- Open the Users screen.
- Select the Associates tab.
- Click the Add button below the list.
- Enter the name and email address of the new user in the top-part of the card.
- If more than one owner company is available in your SuperOffice installation, you can select this below the Email field.
- Enter the relevant information in the Details and Licences tabs.
- Click Save. The name of the new user will now be displayed in the list.
The Details tab
In the Details tab, you have the following options:
User ID: In the User ID field, edit the suggested ID for the user (if you do not want to use the automatically generated ID). You cannot specify a user ID that already exists in the database. There are no restrictions on the characters that can be used in the user ID.
The user ID should not contain too many characters, since it is displayed in the ID columns in SuperOffice CRM, and space in these columns may be limited.
Nick name: The nick name is the name visible to other users of SuperOffice, and is used for SuperOffice Service users only. You can edit the suggested nick name for the user (if you do not want to use the automatically generated name).
Authentication: If multiple authentication methods are available, you can select an authentication method here.
User name: Enter the SuperOffice user name. This should be the same name as in your identity provider's system (if you use Office 365 or Gmail for authentication). When you use SuperOffice for authentication, simply fill in your email address. Make sure the email address is valid, since it is used for account confirmation.
Role: Specify the role the user should have in the Role list box. The role determines the user's data access and functional rights. You cannot change your own role.
User plan: Select the relevant user plan for the user. This determines which SuperOffice features the user can access.
Former employee: If a user should no longer have access to SuperOffice, select this option to remove the user plan and login rights of the user.
Primary group: Select one of the predefined options for group membership in the Primary group list box. These options are defined in the Lists screen. The user is granted access to data owned by other users in the same primary group. Access rights (for example, write and delete access) for these data are defined in the role the user belongs to. See Visibility for more information on sharing data with your primary group.
Other groups: Click in the Other groups field and select which other groups the user should belong to. If the list contains many groups, start typing a group name in the search field to filter the list.
Service categories: These categories are used to give users access to specific request categories.
Service categories from user groups: Shows the categories the user gets from being in a user group.
Joe Johnson works in the sales department of a large company. The primary group is set to "Sales" so that Joe has access rights to data created by users in the sales department. The access rights to the primary group are defined in the role Joe belongs to. This role determines if Joe can edit or delete data created by other users in the sales department (see Define data rights for a role).
Joe also needs limited rights to documents from the marketing department and development department. These two departments are added under Other groups. In the role Joe belongs to it is specified that Joe has read access only to these data.
The Licences tab
In the Licences tab, you can select licenses in addition to those defined by the selected user plan.
Confidential activities: activates the Visible for list for follow-ups, documents and sales, to make records visible only to the user, the user's primary group or everyone. See Visibility.
Can log in
In the lower part of the user card, you can activate or deactivate the login rights of the selected user by clicking the Can log in button. By default this option is activated when you select a user plan for the user.
