In OVID certain users can be designated as administrators. This gives them the ability to manage their organisations details and also allows them to create user accounts and set permissions.
To access these features, login to your OVID account and click on your username followed by "Organisation Profile" from the drop down list:
This will take you to the Manage Organisation page:
Here you can update your organisations contact details when required. It is important to ensure these details are accurate and updated whenever any changes occur. Please note that the organisation name cannot be changed. If the organisation name needs to be changed, please contact the OVID Support helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To create or update a user account click on the "User Management" button as highlighted above. This will then display a list of existing user accounts:
In user management you can add and remove users or add or remove permissions.
To create a new user click on the "Create User" button on the top right of the screen.
In the create user screen you can complete the users name, e-mail address, as well as set an account username and password. Once the details have been completed, click on the "Create" button you can also assign permissions to the user as required:
Here you can add or remove roles to a user by clicking on the switch icon to the right of each role. A role assigned to the user is marked with a green tick.
Typical roles you can assign to a user are:
AO Asset Owner - Allows the ability to create and manage vessels operated by your organisation.
IS Inspection Subject - Allows the user to enter comments to a report and publish it.
OS Organisation Supervisor - Allows the ability to add/remove user accounts and administer organisation details.
OVID Inspection Request Administrator - Allows the user to accept or reject inspection requests on behalf of your organisation.
OVID Programme Recipient Administrator - Allows the member into the Inspection Request area and PR Member Email Notifications.
OVMSA Operator Administrator - User can create and manage the submission of OVMSA reports.
Save any changes once roles have been assigned.
IMPORTANT - When adding a user please ensure that the account created is for a single user only and is not shared with multiple staff members. Access to OVID should always be via a named individual account for each user requiring access.
