In this documentation, we will explore:
- Accessing User Management
- Adding New Users
- Viewing and Editing Users
- Reset a User Password
- Deleting a User Profile
Let’s get started.
Accessing User Management
Step 1: Sign in to PDCflow and navigate to Configure in the top navigation and select App Users from the drop-down menu.
Step 2: Select User Profiles from the App Users drop-down menu.
You will be taken to the User Profiles page where you can create and manage your users by assigning them various levels of permission, setting their activity status, and other details.
Adding New Users
Each user added to your PDCflow account must be assigned to a security group.
Note: For more information, refer to the security group help article.
To add a new user, follow the steps below.
Step 1: Click on the + New User button on the top left-hand side of the User Profiles page.
A new modal window will appear to add the new user.
Step 2: Enter the user’s email address for the username and click on Validate Username.
A new window will open with additional fields.
Step 3: On the Add a new user page, enter the information requested in the fields, including:
|First Name||First name of the user|
|Last Name||Last name of the user|
|Username||The user’s email address|
|Timezone||Set the timezone according to the geographical location of the user from the dropdown menu|
|Department||Assign the department to the user from the dropdown menu|
|Security Group||Assign the security group to the user from the dropdown menu|
When you’ve finished entering information, click the Update user profile button to save the information.
Once a new user is saved, an email will be sent to that user's email address with the URL to the PDCflow login page, their username, and a temporary password.
When a new user logs into PDCflow they'll be prompted to update their password and create security questions.
Viewing and Editing Users
Step 1: Click on the Edit icon (pencil) from the Actions column for the user that you want to view or edit.
On the Edit User Profile page, you can view and modify the user profile including username, first and last names, timezone, department, security group, and activation.
Step 2: Click on the Update User Profile button to save any modifications that you’ve made.
Recent Sign-In History
At the bottom of the Edit User Profile page, you can view the log for a user’s sign-in activity in the Recent Sign-In History table.
Reset a User Password
Step 1: Click on the Edit icon (pencil) from the Actions column corresponding to the user for which you want to reset the password.
Step 2: On the Edit User Profile page, click on the Reset Password link and a modal window will appear allowing you the option to change the password.
Step 3: Confirm the password reset by clicking on the Reset password & Unlock profile button.
After you click the Reset Password button, an email will be sent to the user's email address with a temporary password. If the user's profile was locked (due to too many failed login attempts) then the user profile will also be unlocked.
Deleting a User Profile
Step 1: Click on the Delete icon (trash) from the Actions column corresponding to the user profile that you want to delete.
Step 2: A modal window will appear to confirm the deletion of the user profile. Click on the Remove user button to confirm the action and remove the user. The selected user profile gets removed permanently from the User profile page.
