  • complete the registration process

Customer administrator vs ordinary user

A Customer administrator is responsible for managing their site user accounts, including:

  • approving user applications
  • resetting passwords
  • locking accounts 
  • changing security access levels

Customer administrators have access to reports and documents.

A user has access only to authorised reports and documents in HPA-eLAB.

Any number of users can register and use HPA-eLAB.  The only condition is that each site must nominate at least one customer administrator to manage their user accounts.

Users can register for multiple sites, and can use the same user name and password. Each registration must be approved by the site's customer administrator.

As soon as one administrator approves an application the user can log in to HPA-eLab and see the documents from that customer site. Access to documents for the other customer sites depend on the respective site's customer administrator approval.
