Users

When you subscribe to ServicePilot, you will get a user that can manage your ServicePilot subscription and all of your ServicePilot configuration. For better security and traceability, each user of ServicePilot should be provided with their own credentials for the access level they require. The access levels are specified in ServicePilot user groups. ServicePilot users are then created and assigned as members of a group.

ServicePilot access levels

There are three levels of permissions that can be given to users of ServicePilot. These can be further restricted to parts of the configuration by only allowing users of a particular group to see a subsection of the hierarchy of views.

Groups are also used when scheduling PDF reports. If a PDF report is generated using a group that can only see a part of the view hierarchy, then the content of the report will also be limited to this view hierarchy.
