Click 'Users' > 'User List'

  • Admins and staff are the personnel who access Endpoint Manager (EM) to manage devices and resolve issues. You can convert a user to a staff member by assigning them the appropriate role.
     
  • The role determines their permissions in the Endpoint Manager interface. ITarian ships with a number of predefined roles and you can create custom roles as required.
     
  • Admins and staff created in ITarian are automatically imported to EM with the same role they have in ITarian.
     
  • Staff you directly create in EM are only available in EM. They are not available to other ITarian modules like Service Desk and Secure Internet Gateway.

Use the links below to jump to the task you need help with:

Add staff in ITarian

Admin and staff added to ITarian are available in all ITarian modules, including Service Desk, Secure Web Gateway,  CRM, cWatch and more.

  • Login to ITarian
     
  • Click 'Management' > 'Staff'
     
  • Click 'New Staff'
     
  • Complete the new staff form:


 

  • Name - First and last name of the admin/staff member.
     
  • Email - Contact email address of the admin/staff member.
     
    • The account activation mail is sent to this address.
       
    • The email address doubles-up as their username to login to ITarian
       
  • Role - Select the role of the admin/ staff from the drop down. You can always change this later if required.
     
  • Click the 'Save' button.


 

  • Click 'OK'

A confirmation mail is sent to the user containing an account verification link. The user should click the link to verify their account then create an ITarian password.

  • Once verified, the staff member is enrolled as a user in Endpoint Manager. You can view all users at 'Users' > 'User List'.
  • You can now assign a role with admin or staff privileges to the user. 

Next: Assign role to users / staff

Add users in Endpoint Manager

Staff you add directly to EM are available only in EM. They are not available in other ITarian modules like Service Desk. Once added, you can assign roles with different permissions to the staff member.

There are two ways you can add users:

1. Manually. Add individual users to EM

  • Click 'Users' > 'User List' > 'Create User' to start this process.
     
  • You need to specify their name, email address, the company they belong to, and their EM role.
     
  • See Manually Add Users if you need help with this.

2. Import from .csv. Import a list of users from a comma separated values file.

  • Click 'Users' > 'User Import' to start the process
     
  • The file should contain the following, separated values: 'Username' (mandatory), 'Email address' (mandatory) and 'Phone number' (optional).
     
  • The file should not contain column headers and each line should contain a single user.
     
  • Users are assigned the role you specify in the import dialog.
     
  • See Import Users from CSV if you need help with this

Users assigned with a role with admin privileges will receive an account activation email.

    • Email address (mandatory)
       
    • Phone number (optional)
       
  • For example, "james", "james@ditherscons.com", "9876543210"
