Add and manage account users

From your account dashboard, click on “Manage Users” under Account Settings. This brings you to the page that lets you manage the users that help you manage your ViewMedica service.

Primary Admin

All accounts have a Primary Admin user. The Primary Admin has access to all features of the ViewMedica service. The primary can add or remove subscription content, manage users, change billing information, and everything else that can be done in the ViewMedica administration area.

Add a new user

  1. Click the “Add New User” button to create a new user. That will ask you to set the new user’s username and password, and enter in their contact information.

  2. Next you’ll need to select the permissions to give to this new user. You can use the preset permissions at the top of the page (Staff, Content Manager or Administrator). Or select “Custom” user and click on the permissions you want that user to have.

  3. When done hit the “Save” button.

Create a User Group

User Groups are a good way to give several users the same permissions.

  1. Click on the “Create New Group” link next to the “USER GROUPS” heading. This will ask you to name the group. Give it a name and hit “Save.”

  2. The new group will show up under your “USER GROUPS” listing. Hit the new group’s “Group Permissions” link to set the permissions for anyone you put in this group. You can use the preset permissions at the top of the page (Staff, Content Manager or Administrator). Or select “Custom” and click on the permissions you want this group to have.

  3. Now you can add users to the group. If you already have the users made, select the “Add to Group” link next to that user’s name then select the group to add them to. Or you can first create a new user (see above) then hit the new user’s “Add to Group” link. Every user you add to a group will take on the group permissions.
