To add a new user to Radar, from your Admin dashboard, select Users.

Here you will see a list of all users in your system.


To add a new user, select Add New User...




Enter the user's details into the form:

  • The profile picture should be sized 75×75 pixels
  • Forename(s)
  • Initial(s)
  • Surname
  • Start date
  • End date - if known – If an end date is entered, the user will be deactivated on that date and will no longer be able to log into Radar 
  • Employee reference – A unique reference for the user e.g. payroll number
  • Manager – Select the user's manager. Only users who are flagged as being a manager on their own records will appear in the drop down. Once assigned to a manager, the new user will appear in their manager's workforce list.
  • Department – If no departments have been created in your system, leave this blank
  • Allow this user to logon – If "Yes", the user will be able to login to Radar.  If "No" is selected the user can be tracked in training and compliance and can appear in a staff list as part of event reporting, but can’t be assigned any other items.
  • Email Address – The email address entered will be used to access Radar and any alerts will be sent to this email address. The email address must be unique to each user.
  • Send account activation email? – If you select "Yes" then the welcome email with the link to create a password will be sent to the users registered email address.
  • Is this user a manager? – If the user is a line manager select "Yes". This user will then appear in the above "Manager" drop down list when adding future users.
  • Role(s) – Select the user's role from the drop down list and click Add.  If the role has a scope of location/region then you will be asked for the location/region to which the role belongs. A user can have multiple roles if required. 


Once you have entered all the details, click Save.
