SwipedOn Desks uses Active Directory (AD) Groups to control and manage access the account. A Web Admin and User Account Group will be required.

Web Admin

Create Group

  • Click on 'Add a group'. This will open a new dialog for creating the group.

  • Select a group type of 'Security'.

  • On the next step, enter the group name as 'SwipedOnCompanyWebAdmin'

  • Then click 'Add' to save the new group. The click 'Close' to return to the list view

  • Once you have created the administrator active directory group, you will need to add the relevant users to the group who will require access to SwipedOn Desks Admin features.

  • From the list of group, click on the group name (You may need to refresh the list for the newly added group to appear). This will then open a dialog showing the list of owners and members.

  • Click on 'View all and manage members'. This will then list all members currently within the group (for a newly created group this will be empty).

  • Then click on the button '+ Add members' to then search for users to be added to the group. You can then select who to be included. Once complete, click 'Save' and then 'Close'. The group is now updated to include the selected members. This can be repeated whenever needed to add additional users.


Important Note:

Before users in the administration user group can access the admin panel, you need to allow active directory to synchronise across your system. We recommend waiting overnight for this to take effect.
