Account form

  • Only User Name and the password fields are required.
  • There is no invitation process so you will have to choose how to share credentials.

Administrator Accounts

Administrator accounts add the ability to create and manage accounts. A normal user account has full permissions to manage the VTN, so administrator accounts can be reserved for user management.

If you need to share in administrator privileges, you can make any account in your organization an administrator.

  1. Navigate to Accounts section
  2. Click on the account name you want to elevate
  3. Check the Administrator box Admin settings
  4. Click Save Admin Settings
