Collaboration requires more than one. ECS is aimed to foster collaboration therefor it supports multi-user access. To gain access, users typically are invited. Only users with the role account administrator or manager own the privilege to invite new users.
To invite someone, click on the settings icon (gear wheel) in the upper right side of the screen and select "Users". You will be displayed a list of exiting users and their roles. Below the list you may add new users.
Just enter a name and the users mail address. Upon clicking on "invite" the user will be sent an invitation mail containing a link to login to ECS. During his first login, he will be requested to set a password.
However, as soon as you have invited the user, he appears in the list of users and you may select his role. The default is 'developer'.
The system will let you know, if the user you tried to invite already exists in your company.
What if a user already exists, but in another company?
Users that already exist in another company - e.g. in the conglomerate context - will not require to reset their password again. They will just receive the notification, that they have been added to the company in role, whatever you assigned them.
When they log in, they will find a company selector under their avatar in the upper left corner. Switching the company will readjust their role and scope of presentation. The user context always has one company and one role! Switching the company switches the role accordingly. This allows a user to be a manager in one and a compliance manager in another company.
My Invitation got lost, but user now already exists?
Select the user you want to resend the invitation and press the arrow-button in front of the users mail address. A new invitation link will be generated, invalidating the old one and sent to the user.
User has received an invitation link but is not allowed to access?
Invitation links become invalid after one week. This is to prevent identity theft. Please resend invitation.
