User Profile

Each ASPEC user has a User Profile, located in the Setup section.  Here Administrators configure login credentials, Locale settings, access rights and other options listed below.

Users who are not Administrators can view only their individual User Profile and can edit selected fields like name, email, password reset, phone number, number format, language or time zone.  They cannot modify access rights.

Administrators access User Profiles by clicking Setup (“gears”) in the main navigation bar and finding Users in the Admin Setup/Users and Roles section. Other users click Setup (“gears”) to access Personal Setup.

Depending on your level of access to ASPEC  configuration, you may not be able to modify all of the settings for yourself.  In that case, contact your Administrator to make any changes.

 

 

Fig 2: User Profile

The following fields and setups are available in User Profile:

First and Last Name: 

Email: The E-Mail address of the user. This is also used as the primary login for this user

Phone Number: this value is used  in MS Word add-in for Quotes (Approver, Author)

Active User: When checked this will enable the user account. When unchecked, the user’s account will be suspended. They will not be able to login until their account is again set to “Active”.

Ignore IP Whitelist:  Overrides the organization’s Network Access settings for this user, giving them access from anywhere even when IP Whitelist is enabled for your organization.

Default Expert Mode: When enabled, new IBOs for this user will have Expert Mode as a default for ASPEC Advisor. This includes an additional set of questions where ASPEC Cloud will compare a calculated version of Will We Win and Will It Happen with the user’s selection.

Default Country and State/Province: These values will be pre-populated in new Accounts and Contacts created by the user.

This section is not editable.  It displays roles this user belongs to in the Organization’s role hierarchy. Roles can be changed in Assign Roles setup.

Setting role(s0 when users create new Accounts and IBOs

Choosing “Copy all role(s) as is” automatically copies user’s roles when that user is creating a new Account or an IBO “as is”, regardless of the number of assigned roles and their level in the role hierarchy.

The option “Copy a single role only if at the lowest level” is useful if both sales reps and their managers (who are high in the role hierarchy) create new Accounts or IBOs.  Sales reps will have the roles automatically copied if their roles are at the lowest level.  However, managers will not have the roles copied when creating new records. If their roles were pulled while creating new Accounts, users who are lower in the role hierarchy would not have access to that Account.

The third option “Don’t copy any role(s)” leaves the Access Level blank when the user creates a new Account or an IBO.

Users can edit this section to set their preferences like language, number and date format, currency, time zone and csv delimiter in export files.  The default is set in Organization Profile.

 

Adminstrators set the levels of access to ASPEC modules and records.  Users who are not Administrators cannot edit this section.

Accounts Permissions

Create If selected, the user will be able to create new Accounts and Sub-Accounts

Note: If a Sub-Account is created under an Account (or another Sub-Account) that has Contacts, then the Contacts are moved under the new (and now the lowest) Sub-Account. To do that the user has to have the right to Merge/Move, because in this case the Account structure is changed.  Create option applies to cases where the user creates a new root Account or Sub-Account under an Account (or another Sub-Account) that does not have any Contacts.

Merge/Move If selected, the user will be able to modify existing Account structures by merging or moving Accounts.
Delete If selected, the user will be able to delete Account structures.

 

Contacts Permissions

Merge/Move If selected, the user will be able to move Contacts under different Accounts, change Account in Contact or merge 2 Contacts into a single Contact.

 

At the bottom of the form Adminstrators grant access to the Marketing and Service module, if the Organization is using these modules.  If the user is given access to the Marketing module, the Administrator can assign the right to Create/Update Mailing ( Mail Integration with Marketing Event).
