User administration is now available in the NavVis Portal from the User Management screen. If you are an Account Administrator, you can view and control permissions for NavVis Portal users within your company. 

What is an Account Administrator?

When you have the role of Account Administrator, you can assign roles and associated permissions to users. The permissions you give to the user are organized into user roles. You can assign these roles to different users. By assigning user roles for users within your company, they will only have access to the resources that apply to them. As an example, there might be a user allowed to access the resources on the NavVis Portal, but not allowed to raise support cases. 

How do I become an Account Administrator?

Every company account for the NavVis Portal will have at least one Account Administrator by default. The Account Administrator for your company account is the only one able to nominate new Account Administrators. If you have questions, please contact your Technical Account Manager (TAM) and they will help you set an Account Administrator for your company account.
