Group Managers

Group managers are a distinct class of users who can add and remove users from their groups but don’t have access to Site Admin privileges or users outside their group(s).

Group Managers will only have access to the groups dashboard to see and manage their own groups. Group Managers will not be able to access the Users tab.

Group Managers can:

  • View users in their Group, including fellow Group managers (but not users outside of their Group)

  • Add preexisting users who already have accounts on subdomain to their Group via email lookup

  • Create new accounts for users who do not already have accounts on that site

  • Remove users from their Group (but not cannot deactivate or lock users)

  • Assign other Group managers for their Group

Assigning Group Managers

Once the Group has been made and users have been added to the Group, Site Admins or Group Managers can assign (other) Group Managers within that Group by clicking the Group Manager checkbox.

Groups Overview

Groups give access to different site tools available on your platform. Some groups are standard. Other team-based groups can be created for additional collaboration.

 

Standard Groups

The following groups come standard for each Customer and can be assigned to any provisioned user:

Note: You only need to assign one reporting group. If a user should see all aggregate and all PII reports, assign the Aggregate and PII Reporting Access group.

 

Team-Based Groups

Team-based groups can be set up for collaboration. Users in any group can:

When setting up a group, the Site Admin can elect to turn on Team Navigation. Team Navigation automatically shares all navigation activity with other members in that group. This feature is designed for care teams that share referral or navigation information across their team.

When enabled, Team Navigation automatically shares the following information with other members in that group:

  • Submitted Referrals
  • Submitted Assessments
  • Navigation Notes
  • Goals

If a user is in two groups with team navigation enabled, those actions will be automatically shared to all members in both groups.

 

Creating Groups

To set up groups, Site Admins will click on the clipboard icon on the left menu to open the Groups Dashboard.

Sharing Favorite Folders and Notes: All groups will automatically allow staff to share favorites and notes with each other. 

Team Navigation is designed for case management teams and other organizations that share referral or navigation information across their teams.

 

Deleting Groups

To delete a Group from the Groups Dashboard, Site Admins will click the checkbox, followed by the trashcan icon. This will delete the group and remove any users who were in that group.

Best Practices For Deactivating Users

Lock Account - This is intended for organizations like hospitals, insurance companies, or other organizations where staff all work for the same entity.

Locking account keeps that user's activity, such as referrals, with the organization and shared with any Team Navigation groups, but restricts the user from being able to access it anymore.

Remove Permissions and Deactivate - This is intended for Community platforms where users from multiple entities are using the platform.

When you deactivate a user here, they are no longer a provisioned user for your site. This means that they will no longer be able to see Assessments or Guided Search, and will be removed from any groups so that they may no longer see Team Navigation activities. This also means that you can no longer access the work that they have done including any Team Navigation activities.

They will still be able to log into their account on that site and will retain access to referrals and notes. Favorites can be viewed on any site, including findhelp.org.

 

User Status Definitions

On the User Dashboard, there is a status for each user:

  • Active users are live provisioned users for that site

  • Pending means that they still need to approve their account either through the email link or by resetting their password.

  • Inactive means that the Site Administrator clicked "Remove Permissions and Deactivate". This removes their provisioned status from the site and removes them from any groups, but they can still log into their account on findhelp.org and see the activities they've done

  • The lock icon means that the site admin clicked to "lock" their account so that they cannot login again
