Self Service Users


The Self Service Users page, accessed via the User Management section of Builder, is where you can add, edit and manage your Self Service users. Self Service users are the people who you are delivering service to and who are using Enate Self Service.

Note that the Self Service Users page will only appear if you have a Self Service instance configured.

You can see a list of your existing Self Service users, and information such as their first name, last name, username, email address, company, when they last logged into Self Service, and whether or not they can view community requests i.e. if they can view all of the requests that have been submitted to their company in Self Service.

You can customise the order in which you want to view your Self Service users by clicking on each column header.

Additionally, you can choose to only show Self Service users that belong to a particular company by using the company filter option at the top of the page.

You can also use the search function at the top of the page.
