How to Edit Another User's Profile

This article outlines how admins can edit other users' profiles.

How can it help you?

Editing other users gives admin complete control over their staff and dashboard.

Admins can change other users' account details, including account type (Admin, User), to control what level of authority each individual has over other users. Please note that this is different from our User Groups functionality, which allows admin to control what level of access users have over equipment. 

How does it work?

Only accounts with admin access can edit other users. 

Although individuals can edit their own account, admins can edit other users and admin's profiles through the users admin page. 

To access it, admins can click the down-arrow in the top right-hand corner next to their user profile and click 'Users' under Admin Tools.

Billing Admin Tool

On this page, click the 'Edit' button next to the desired user's name. You can quickly find a specific user using the search bar in the top right-hand corner of the page. 

Users Admin

Clicking 'Edit' will take you to their user profile (see example below).

Edit User Profile

On this page, you can edit the user's:

  • Name
  • User type
  • Position
  • Mobile Phone Number
  • Work Location
  • Department
  • LinkedIn Profile, and
  • Organisation Access (where applicable).

You cannot change the email address used to create that account. 

By clicking the drop-down menu next to the 'Edit' and 'Equipment' buttons and selecting "Update preferences", you can also change that user's notification preferences and their preferred Unit of Measure.

On any page, remember the click 'Update' to save your changes!

What else should I look at?
