This area will explain the kinds of details you can log against a User, from personal details to booking and course information.

Where are Users stored?

Users of the accessplanit platform can all be found in the Users DataGrid, accessible by clicking Users in the left menu:

Setting up a User

In order to set up a User, you would click Add in this DataGrid:

You will then need to fill out the information within the Account tab first, and below is an overview of the available fields:

User ID
This is the ID the platform recognises the User by. Leaving this blank will allow the platform to populate this field for you.

Names and Title
These fields allow you to enter the first, middle, and last name of the User, as well as the User's preferred title.

Email
If you want to be able to send Communications out to the User, it is important that this field contains their email address.

There is a setting on your platform that can be configured by accessplanit so that multiple users are allowed the same email address, but by default a user's email address must be unique. The page regarding more information on this can be found here.

Main Account
This is the Account associated with the User. This is the Main Account/Company that the User belongs to in the platform, and is the Account that their Main Role will be under. 

Direct Manager
This is the User's Manager. 

Main Role
This is the role that the User has within the platform. This field determines what the User can and can't access within accessplanit. To learn more about User Roles, click here.

Status
A User must have the status of Active in order to access the platform.

Password
Here, you can change the User's password and provide password hints. The the length of of the password, what it has to contain, the amount of password attempts, and the length of the lockout duration can be controlled by your Password Policy

By default emails will not send out from your test and sandbox platforms, the exception to this is Password Reset emails which on test and sandbox environments will actually send. Please be mindful of this when practicing within your test and/or sandbox platform.

Tags
The Tag field allows you to enter in Tags that relate to the user. Generally-speaking, this is used for reporting purposes.

Restrict Booking
The Restrict Booking tick-box can be used to prevent the User from booking onto courses themselves.

Resetting a User's password

Resetting a password can be done in four separate ways:

  • A training administrator can manually set a password using the 'Password' and 'Confirm Password' fields against a User



  • A training administrator can send a reset password link email to the user's email address, and they can follow this link to create a new password

     

  • The User can select the "Forgotten your Email/User ID or password?" button in the Learner Portal, enter either their User ID or Email Address, and then a reset password link email will be sent to them - which they can follow to create a new password

     

  • The User can change their own password when logged into the platform by going to the 'Preferences' tab in the Learner Portal and selecting 'Change Password'

 

You can change the content of your Password Reset emails, or create multiple templates for different languages, by changing or building a new PasswordResetRequestModel workflow. You can learn more about different modules available for workflows and email templates here.

Impersonating Users

Impersonating a User will allow you to view the platform how the User will when they log in.

This is especially useful for troubleshooting issues, or if you are making a permission change to the User, so you can check that the limits of what the User can and can't view/edit/delete are correct.

Anonymising Users

Anonymising a User's data allows you to remove that person's personal information from your platform very quickly, without deleting them and without affecting any historic Financial and Delegate information.

When you Anonymise a User, the following information is updated:

  1. Specific personal information is anonymised or removed.
