User Account Profile Workflow

User accounts are used to control user activities in Technician Tool.

For example, in Workstation, you create a Custom View that contains variables of a Campus that you want to monitor from Technician Tool. The Campus has four buildings: Administration, East, South, and Northwest.

You then create the user profiles that have access to a specific part of the building:

  • A team dedicated to East aisle, having access to all information of Building - East

  • A team dedicated to South aisle, having access to energy values in Read/Write and HVAC value in Read only mode of Building - South

  • A team dedicated to the entire Building

Use this workflow to create user profiles for Technician Tool. Related information can be found in the sections after the flowchart.

SouthTeam has Full access to the following folders:

  • Building - South (as the user is dedicated to South aisle)

  • Custom View (to have access to Custom View folder using Technician Tool)

  • Energy values with Read/Write permission (as the user wants to modify it)

  • HVAC values with Read permission (as the user wants to see it for diagnostic purpose but does not want to change it)

WideTeam has Full access to the following folders:

  • Campus (as the user is dedicated to entire Campus)

  • Custom View (to have access to Custom View folder using Technician Tool)

In Technician Tool, create user account logons
