Manage users

This section describes how to manage users in Snow Mobility Manager.

Users are created in Snow Device Manager by any of the following procedures:

  • By synchronization with an Active Directory.

  • By importing several users at the same time.

  • By manually adding a user.

When a user is created in Snow Device Manager, a user account is created. The user account can be used to log in to Snow Self Service and the Snow app.

View user

  1. On the Users menu, click View user.

  2. Type a keyword in the Search for user box and then select the user from the drop-down list.

    Information about the user, the user's activities, and the user's devices is displayed in the User view.

    Note

    The search will find all users that match a search criteria. However, the drop-down list shows only a limited number of search results. Therefore, the search criteria must be refined, for example by typing the full user name, to show the correct search result.
