Inviting New Users
Inviting users couldn’t be easier! First, choose the access you want this user to have:
Clicking the Invite button will pop out this form:
Enter the first name, last name, email, and which team (if applicable) to the appropriate boxes and select the bubble associated with the user's access rights. Then, click Invite. This action will trigger an email to the user with a hyperlink to a password creation page. Once the user has chosen a password, they’re ready to get started with ITPro!
If you are adding admin access to a member who already has an active seat with your team, you can follow the above instructions and then select “Give user ProPortal(admin)” and invite them again. This will add ProPortal privileges to their active ITProTV subscription account. They will need to log out and log back in to refresh their updated access.
If a user already has an account or misses their password creation timeframe, have your user head to the main login page and request a password reset there. This will get their password and account set up in one step!
If a user is not invited to the subscription by the seat admin, they will NOT be able to create an account on their own. Seat admins, please assist your team by creating and activating user’s seats as quickly as possible.
User Management and User Activity Overview
Each user created will be labeled in your ProPortal home screen, and you can filter this list to make your view easier by selecting the group in this dropdown menu.
Most of the time, you'll be viewing the Active list. Once selected, it will show the people making use of the available seats in alphabetical order.
👉 We’re passionate about these seats being used, so if you allocate a seat to an individual who leaves your organization, you can deactivate and re-assign their seat to someone new.
Next to each name you’ll see a dropdown arrow, which will give you several options for each subscription user, based on their current status:
You can remove a team member’s access to the account subscription by selecting "Deactivate Subscription.”
You will also be able to remove admin rights from other admins by selecting “Remove Admin Rights.” This will NOT deactivate their active subscription seat automatically if they have both privileges.
If a member of your team is having issues with logging in, you can send a password reset to their email by clicking the “Reset Password” button below their seat. The password reset links are time-sensitive and remain active for 15 minutes, so be sure to alert the user immediately to check their inbox (and their Spam/Junk folder) for this email!
If a user reaches out who was previously active on the subscription, you can search their name/email and reactivate their seat by using the “Activate Subscription” button. Please ensure you have enough seats available to reactivate the user before doing so.
Clicking the “Activity” button next to any user’s name will show their Activity screen, giving you a brief overview of that individual's activity to date.
Here you can check for regular login activity and the number of episodes finished under “Viewed Completely.” If the user is a member of any teams or assignments, this will be noted below with links each section by clicking the appropriate title.
If you would like to download the individual's activity report, click the “Download Activity” link. This will generate an Excel spreadsheet of their full viewing history.
Organization Activity Overview and Export
Seeing one person’s overall activity is great, but there will be times that you want to see the whole organization’s behavior. Navigate to the Assignments page where you will see options to download reports on your team’s activity for 4 types of information: Viewings, Assignments, Labs, and Logins. Clicking any one of these options will immediately generate and download an Excel spreadsheet showing your team’s statistics on the selected information.
