UMRA: have unit managers create their own temporary employees

UMRA: have unit managers create their own temporary employees

Door: Arnout van der Vorst

Usually when a new employee enters the company, operations will receive a request for a new user account. When an external or temporary employee needs a user account, usually the unit manager will know the details only a few days in advance. Therefore it is a good idea to give the unit manager a secure form-based method of creating temporary user accounts. UMRA Forms is the solution:

  • Simple and secure form-based Windows client or optional web interface
  • Can be delegated to any user or group, such as unit managers
  • Can be pre-made to automatically assign the user temporary status, i.e. expire after 3 months
  • Can be setup to automatically assign specific group memberships to the new user account
  • UMRA can track the temporary status of the user account and notify the creator using mail for instance 2 weeks before the 3 month period ends
  • UMRA can send automated reports to each unit manager containing lists of all temporary user accounts and associated group memberships to track permissions
  • Can be setup to allow unit managers to extend the period by another 3 months or to revoke the account immediately
  • Can be setup to include specific logging to external databases or helpdesk systems for reporting purposes
  • Can be setup to contain workflows such as approval by a senior unit manager before the newly created user account is active
