Admin users with access to User Administration in the Bandwidth Dashboard can create new user logins to give other team members access to their account in the Bandwidth Dashboard. 

  1. Login to the Bandwidth Dashboard.
  2. From the top navigation menu, click 'Account' and then on 'Users.' This will bring you to the User Management page.
  3. Click 'Add'
  4. Provide a Username, First and Last name, email address, and work phone number. This is a critical step as it’ll be used for validation later.mceclip4.png
    • Note: The telephone number must be typed in 10-digit format. Each user will need to verify their phone number using the exact same format.
  5. Administration level: An 'Account Admin' can manage users, while a 'Basic User' can only edit and view their own profile.
  6. Access methods: Determine how this user should interact with the Bandwidth Dashboard.  For users who only access the web-based interface select 'GUI', for users who only use an API interface choose 'API', or you can also select 'BOTH'.mceclip3.png
  7. Password: Skip over the password, your user will set this. As an account administrator, you can set up this user's password. If you choose to do this, just be sure to let them know what it is so they can log in.
  8. Roles: Set the permissions for this account. From here, click to toggle the permissions your user will need to access for their job functions. A definition of each role may be found at the bottom of this page.
  9. Accounts: If your company has multiple Bandwidth Dashboard accounts, you can grant access to those here.
  10. Finally click ‘Save Changes’.

 

After you've done this, we’ll send your user an email to confirm their account information.  The first email will contain the username. This will come from dashboard-updatenotification@bandwidth.com
