By default, the standard Omnilert Admin Roles set the Timeline as the first page when logging into the admin portal. Omnilert allows an administrator to set their own custom "Start Page".
Setting a personal start page for your login
If desired, Admins can change their personal Start Page on the My Profile page's options:
The options for a custom Start Page are:
- Timeline - Opens to the Timeline. (This is the system default start page.)
- Launch scenarios - Opens to the Scenario Manager > Scenarios > Launch page
- Send message - Opens to the Send Message page to compose and send a message.
Simply select the desired start page and click Update details to save your changes.*
(*Note: You will only see pages that your admin login's current access permissions will allow. So, if your admin is not permitted to go to Send Messages, that option won't appear.)
Setting a start page for a Custom Role
Add of Omnilert's built-in admin roles default to the Timeline as their start page. However, Omnilert allows the creation of custom administrator "roles". (See Creating Custom Admin Roles [VIDEO])
Custom Admin Roles can have their own start page assigned. This can be used to send an admin directly to the Send Message page or your Scenarios, bypassing the Timeline.
To set a role-based start page, simply go to Settings > Admin Roles and click on the desired role. Then set the start page for that custom role accordingly.
For example, if I have created a special role called "Campus Dispatcher" for my dispatchers, I may want those admins to log in and see the "Send Message" page first. So, I adjust that custom role as shown below:
Note: By default, all admins can choose their own start page. If you wish to prevent a role's admins from setting their own start page, be sure to edit the Permissions for that role to remove access to "profile.start_page".
If you are not seeing new admins pushed to their assigned role's Start Page, check the Permissions for their custom role.
Ensure that the "settings.admin_roles.start_page" is enabled. (It should be enabled by default for most new roles.)
Disabling this permission option will force admins with this role to use the system default (Timeline).
