Manage Users and Assign Roles in ElevateAP

A user must be assigned to at least one Document Group before they can access any documents, so consider creating Document Groups before creating users.
You must have User Admin permissions to manage users and assign roles.

Create or edit users

You can view, edit, and create users in the Users section of ElevateAP.

  1. From the left sidebar, select Users > Manage Users.
  2. Click Add User.
  3. Enter the user's First Name, Last Name, and Email.
  4. Select at least one Role for the new user. Roles control user access and permissions, and you can select multiple roles.
  5. Regardless of role, you can make this user a User Admin by checking the box for User Admin.
  6. Check the box(es) of the Document Group(s) this user should be assigned to. Document Groups determine which documents a user can view and edit.

To edit an existing user:

  2. Edit the user’s First Name, Last Name, Role, or Document Group(s).

User emails can't be edited. If you need to change a user's email, delete the user and re-create it with the new email address.


Delete users

Click the trash icon elevate_delete_icon.png to delete a user. Deleting a user completely and permanently removes them from ElevateAP.
