How to Manage Department and Users


Category:UCView Concepts And Architecture ->  Departments and Users

MANAGING DEPARTMENTS AND USERS
THE DEPARTMENTS AND USERS module allows you to control and define access and use permissions for your digital signage infrastructure. Creating different departments allows you to specify for each user which location they have access to and which section of the screen they can submit content to.

Each user in each department will manage their own campaigns and-when allowed by the administrator-approvals. The administrator can move between departments, control all campaigns and override changes made by users.

The UCView Digital Signage Portal allows you to create departments within departments for additional control.

To create new departments:

Click DEPARTMENTS AND USERS TAB under the MANAGEMENT MENU.

Digital signage department permission


Enter department name and any other relevant information (address, phone, e-mail) in the provided text fields. You are only required to fill in the NAME field.

CAMPAIGN & ADS: Check REQUIRE APPROVAL box to require authorization for an ad to play. The system will send an e-mail to the e-mail address in the administrator’s E-MAIL Text Box requesting your approval (see below for instructions to set up users). If you leave this field blank, a message will not be sent requesting your approval.

LOCATIONS & DISPLAYS TAB (Automatically Restart Displays): Select either NEVER or EVERY from the drop down list.

  • NEVER - Displays will not reset automatically.
  • EVERY - Enter the number of hours between display restarts.
  • AT ANY TIME - If you would like restarts to occur only between specified times, select ONLY BETWEEN from the drop down list next to the Hours text box and enter the desired hours. Otherwise leave the drop down list set to AT ANY TIME.
