      8. The Administrator can then enter the Control Panel area where they can see details for the organisation. The Administrator has already been added as a User. This area also provides information on the number of users allowed, Cloud Storage etc. If you do not have access to the FenestraPro Platform service, this value will display as zero.

      9. On the left side of this window are buttons for viewing:
        1. Your Projects (when models have been uploaded to the Cloud, they are saved here)
        2. Manage Reports (as they are created, they are saved here)
        3. The Glass Database may be viewed here
        4. Manage your Profile and App settings

      10. If you have only one Desktop subscription and you are the only User, you will be the Administrator and single User (you will not be able to add more Users).If you are part of a larger organisation with several seats, new Users may be added by simply entering their email, confirming it and clicking on Add User.

      11. New Users may be added by simply entering their emails. Users may also be given Administrator permissions so that they also can add Users and modify settings. Only Users with Admin permission can add other Users. Only some Users need to have administrator privileges. The number of Users that can be added is limited to the type of license subscription.Users that have been added, will be included in the list (this is displayed for Admin Users only). Until Users have verified their email, it will display Verification Pending beside their name.

        Added Users appear in the list
      12. Once added, these Users will then receive an email with the license serial number and a link to click on. This will allow each User to create credentials (an email and password) for signing in. (the email to be used to Sign in should be the same as the one that was used by the Administrator when creating the User). Even if you do not have access to the cloud service, Users should sign in as this is required for access to the application and for security.Users may be edited, deleted or also given Administrator privileges by clicking on their name, once they have been added, and editing their details.
      13. Administrators may also create Teams in the Control Panel. Click on the plus icon to create a Team name. Enter the name and click on Add Team. This will now appear under the Teams section.
        Admin may also create Teams if they wish

        Teams also appear in a list for reference
      14. By clicking on a User, they may be added to a Team by clicking on the Team name which will move it into the right panel. If Users did not receive a setup email, this may be resent from this area as well. Any changes then should be saved.

        Click on Users to Add them to a Team
      15. By clicking on a Team name, an Administrator may delete it if they wish.

        Admin may edit or delete Users and Teams
      16. By clicking on the Profile icon on the left, a User may edit their preferences such as preferred model units, User Name or Password.

        Edit Preferences
      17. If your subscription includes access to FenestraPro’s cloud service, you may periodically have to sign in for security purposes (models may be transferred to the cloud service for analysis and saved there as well as modified and these changes imported back into Revit). If your subscription includes access to the Platform, this area provides links to various tutorial videos and the FenestraPro website etc.
