User Menu


A user can view all of the information about their account by selecting their profile. What is displayed is their permissions, teams, projects, and what type of user they are.

My Profile

Through the user profile, you can access your permissions, the teams you are a part of, the projects you are a part of, and your certifications.


Users can view the permissions that are granted to them. To see your permissions, click on the user menu and then select "My Profile." A modal will appear that displays all of your permissions. Users with the correct permissions may also alter their permissions here. Users can grant or deny entire bulks of permissions or grant or deny a single one from that topic as seen below.

Menu Permissions


Users can view the teams they are a part of in this tab. If they have the correct permissions, users can remove themselves from a team or add themselves to a team in this tab.

Team Quotas


A user may wish to suspend their account if they do not want to completely log out of the session, but would like to protect their account. Suspending the account requires the user to enter their private key password and navigates them back to session. Suspension is useful in the case that a user must walk away from their desk for a moment. The user has an hour of being suspended before they are logged out.

Message LogBy clicking the task icon, the user will see their messaging activity.

Log Out

A user can log out of the system - once they do this, their session expires.

Users can view their notifications by selecting the bell icon located to the left of their user name. What populates in this modal includes messages sent directly to the user or to groups in which the user is in. Notifcations also appear when files are shared. Users receive a notification when they themselves send out messages or share their own files. Notifications older than 3 months do not appear. A user can clear the notifications by selecting the "CLOSE ALL" button located at the top right of the modal. To exit the modal, the user must click anywhere outside of the modal.
