Administrators are able to assign supervisor rights to users. In fact, selected users can be given supervisor duties over any particular group. This helps administrators maintain control of their account by enabling select supervisors to have oversight of certain individuals and applications.
Here’s how it works:
- In the Administration section, select Manage Users.
- Click the green Find Users button in the Manage Users box.
- Filter down the list of users you would like to modify with the Narrow By and Select Users boxes and click .
- Click on the name of the person you wish to modify.
- Click Access from the option bar shown below:
- Select User Access and Groups User Oversees. These selections determine the type of access the new supervisor will have and what groups they will be able to manage within the site. A supervisor essentially has limited rights to specific applications as well as people.
- Select to submit the changes..
Supervisory rights can be a little tricky, so please note the information below:
As you move down between Categories (“Categories” are defined, in the example below as Battalion, Rank and EMS Classification), the more restrictive the Supervisory rights become. So, if you have all Battalions, Ranks and EMS Classifications checked – every user has to have something selected for each one of these groups in order for them to show up. If a user has nothing filled out for the EMS Classification group, the supervisor actually will not be able to see that user. If you want your supervisors to oversee all users you need to select one category that every user in the organization has filled out, and select all for only that category.
Note: Supervisors are unable to create other supervisors. This is strictly an administrative function
