Create and Manage User Accounts


As an administrator, you can invite people to your Calibre organisation to collaborate on performance and get access to metrics and reports. You have full control over who joins and which levels of permissions they have to potentially make changes.

Add a Person

As an administrator, you can add people to your organisation under People tab:

  1. Click on the Invite people button in the upper right-hand corner:
    People tab where you can add and manage people within your organisation.
  2. Fill in the necessary profile information and select an appropriate role:
    Invite a person to your organisation by providing their name, email and role.
  3. Click the Send invitation button.

The person you invited will receive an email with a prompt to join your organisation.

Remove a Person

You can remove people from your organisation at any time. Navigate to the People tab and:

  1. Click the Remove link next to the person you’d like to remove:
    Click Remove to remove person’s access to your organisation.
  2. Confirm the account removal by typing the persons’ name in the modal:
    Confirm user account deletion by typing the person’s name.

The account data will be immediately deleted and their access revoked.

Find a Person

You can quickly find a person (or people) using the search field in the upper right corner of the People tab. You can query by:

  • name
  • email address
  • role
  • authentication type

You can also sort the People table by clicking on the headings. For example, click on Last seen to uncover people who log in to Calibre most frequently.

Manage Permissions

There are two roles with different levels of access in Calibre:

  • Administrator: can manage the organisation, all monitoring settings, add Sites, run tests and use the full capabilities of the API.
  • User: can manage all monitoring settings, add Sites, run tests and use the full capabilities of the API.

In short, administrators are people who have full control over your organisation in Calibre. Users are contributors who control what gets monitored and how.
