How to create new/additional Users
To create a new/additional User, log in to the Administrator console as described in the Administration console section.
Click on ‘User’:
Click on 'New', which displays the following form:
Mandatory information is marked with an asterisk.
- The default is the main branch, but you can organise your users within branches. This is particularly important for Compensators, as you can restrict the users’ work list to claims allocated to a specific branch.
- Select the type of profile you would like to assign to the user. See the section regarding User profiles to identify the correct profile.
- User ID:
- The User ID must be unique within the whole of the Portal and not just within your organisation. If the User ID is already in use, an error message will be displayed. The User ID cannot be an email address. Note that the User ID is personal to the user. User IDs and passwords must not be shared, as that is in breach of the User Agreement.
- The user will be forced to amend the password at first login.
- Expiry date:
- This is the date when the User ID will expire and access to the Portal denied. The default is set to 2 years from creation date. As an Administrator you need to manage the Expiry dates – see section on Expiry dates.
- Password Expiry Date:
- This is automatically set to 90 days from the date the password was last changed. When the password expires, the user will be prompted to amend it. However, good practise is to change the password more frequently and in line with your organisation's policy. The users can do that themselves from within the Portal.
- This must be ticked for the user to be given access to the Portal.
- This is a secondary flag, which is maintained automatically.
You will need to create each User ID for each User. Next click 'Confirm'.
Top Tip: Administrators are fully responsible for managing and maintaining all User accounts. This includes password resets, expiry dates and User details.Back to the top.
