Viewing and editing a user’s details

An Admin user can only edit the details and reset the PIN or password for a user who has been created within the company for which they have admin. permissions. For example, the Users page may include ‘associate users’ from the parent company ‘A’, and users from the brand company ‘B’. If an Admin user only has permissions for company ‘B’, they can only edit the settings for users created within that company.

In a similar way, only an Admin user from company ‘A’ can edit the details of users created within that company. However, if a company ‘A’ Admin user also has admin. permissions for company ‘B’, then they can edit users from both companies, without needing to change the company that they are logged into.

An Admin user can always view the details of any associate or normal user in the list.

The details of Contactlab customer care team members who appear as associate users in a company team’s list, can only be edited by Contactlab.

    • Status
      Displays the user’s current status, for example, Active, Suspended, Disabled or Blocked. The tab also enables you to suspend the user, as well as see whether the account has been locked.
