Welcome to another Dome tutorial, this video will show you how to manage the users in your system.
To access the ‘Users’ menu, click ‘Manage’ and then highlight ‘Users’ and then click on the ‘Users’ sub-menu.
Displayed in front of you will be a list of all the active users in the system. Depending on the size of your organisation the list of users may be over a couple of pages. To find a record more quickly, use the search bar located in the top left corner of the page. The drop-down menu to the right of this allows you to show either: only active users, only inactive users or show all users.
To create a new user, click the ‘New’ button in the bottom left corner. A dialogue box will appear, to create a new user:
- Enter their first and last names
- Create a Login / Username
- Choose a temporary password, the user will be prompted to change this on first login
- Enter an officer’s collar number
- Select a title from the drop-down menu
- Assign an officer’s rank from the drop-down menu
- Assign the officer’s unit from the drop-down menu
- Select which station the officer is based at from the drop-down menu
The first name, last name, login, and password are all mandatory fields, so must be completed in order to add the user’s details and create a user login. If empty, the system will ask you to complete these fields when you click on the ‘save’ button.
To ensure a user can see the required areas of the Dome or to control what a user can and cannot see, you will need to assign a permission group to them. To do this click the ‘Permission Group’ tab in the new user dialogue box and tick the correct permission level for that new user. When you are finished. Click ‘Save’ or if you want to continue adding users to the system, click ‘Save and Continue’.
Editing a user is the same process, only instead of clicking on the ‘New’ button, you simply click on the existing user you wish to edit.
Administrators can also delete, deactivate, or activate multiple users. To do this tick the radio button to the left of one or more users. Click the ‘Delete’, ‘Activate’ or ‘Deactivate’ buttons in the bottom left corner.
Finally, administrators may wish to export a list of users on the system. To do this simply click the export to ‘Excel’ icon in the bottom left.
