User Access Fields

The following table provides descriptions for the fields shown on the User Access page.

For help assigning administrative permissions, see Assign Users Access to Modules. For details on each module bundle, see About Module Bundles and Licensing.



FieldDescription
Licensed user counts / Contracted users by module



Shows the total number of licensed users compared to the total contracted users by module. If you have more licensed users than contracted users, the number of licensed users shows in red. See About Module Bundles and Licensing for details on how user licenses are counted.

Important: If the licensed user count shows in red, you currently have more licensed users than contracted users and may be billed for an overage (you will also see a flag on the Admin > User Access menu). To prevent overage charges, ensure that the number of licensed users does not exceed the number of contracted users. Billing overages are based on the highest number of excess Licensed Users for a month.

Note: A warning displays if your license data is not showing. This indicates an issue with the link between your Customer ID and Viewpoint's records. If you receive this error for a live or test portal, enter a case in the Viewpoint Customer Portal, and include your Customer ID as shown on the Portal Settings page.
Filter TypeAllows you to filter the page by PR Groups or Employee Groups. Other drop-down fields in the header change based on the Filter Type that you select:
  • If you select PR Groups, the PRCo and PR Group drop-downs are available for selection.
  • If you select Employee Group, the Employee Group drop-down is available for selection.
