How to manage Ascema user accountslink

One of tools available to an Ascema administrator is to create new user accounts, both for additional administrators and for users with full access to the reports. Each of these users must have a password defined, which can be re-set if needed.

Info

You do not need to set up user accounts for users who only need to access the system to manage the sensitive data on their own devices. The device report and data management tools can be accessed without having a user account setup.

User accounts will be needed for users who require more detailed reporting or who will require administrative rights to create new tasks or users.
