Admin accounts can be edited to suit your needs.
View admins within the People > Admins section of the Admin portal.
The "Status" of an admin determines if that admin account can or cannot be accessed.
- Active admins are admins that are permitted to log in and use Omnilert.
- Inactive admins, as the name implies, cannot log in and use the system.
You can filter the view of admins by their status using the filter at the top of the list.
To edit an admin, simply click on their username name in the list of active or inactive admins.
Use the details tab to edit the admin's username, first/last name, and contact info (for internal informational purposes only), and set the admin's role.
The admin's "role" determines the basic permissions for their account. (See "Admin roles")
In some cases, it may be necessary to reset another admin's password. Use the Password tab to reset the admin's password for them.
Use the Access period settings to limit the time of day that this admin can log into the administrator portal for Omnilert.
If a time range (starting and ending times) is set, the admin will only be permitted to log in during that range.
Setting both "Starting" and "Ending" times to 00:00 will allow access at any time.
In some cases, an admin will need to have special access to features that they normally would not use under their role. Use the Permissions settings to override this admin's Admin Role.
Note: Editing individual admins' permissions is a good idea when there's only one admin who will need special access. We recommend creating a Custom admin role if there will be multiple admins with the same customized access.
Use the Groups tab to select which groups this admin will be able to send messages to and view in other screens of Omnilert.
Note: By default, Super Admins and the Account admin will see all groups, regardless of selections. (See Admin roles)
The Activity tab shows a log of activities within the Omnilert Admin Portal for the chosen admin.
Much like the system's Activity log, this log shows all actions, logins, and other activities within the site and is searchable as well as exportable for external use. Unlike the full Activity log, this view will be limited to actions taken by this administrator only.
