The Users section includes three sub-sections:
On the Users Management page, you can create and edit accounts for managers that work with your Affise Admin panel.
Users Activity log
On the User Activity log page, you can check the logs for different user actions that have been done within your Affise Admin panel.
On the Permissions Presets page you can create, edit, and delete presets that are used or will be used in the user account creation process.
You can manage your presets via API as well:
On the User Management page, you can create and edit accounts for managers that work with your Affise Admin panel. Moreover, you can also grant access to your managers only to a specific type of data or prohibit to view some particular sections.
How to create a user’s account?
To create a user’s account you need:
1. Click ‘Users’ - > ‘User Management’ - > ‘Create user’
2. Now you see a form that needs to be filled in:
Email - User’s email address which will be later used as login into Affise Admin panel
Name - a required field: User’s first name
Surname - a required field: User’s last name
Working time - an optional field: User’s working hours
IM/Skype - an optional field: User’s IM/Skype details
User type - a required field: assign one of the available types to the User:
General manager - a user with admin rights to the panel
Affiliate Manager - a user who is responsible for the work with Affiliates
Account Manager - a user who is responsible for the work with Advertisers
❗ After creating a user, the user type cannot be changed.
The General manager has access to all sections and all stats.
The Account manager has access to Dashboard, Statistics, Offers, Advertisers, Smartlinks, Tickets, News, Export, and stats on his/her advertisers.
The Affiliate manager has access to Dashboard, Statistics, Offers, Smartlinks, Affiliates, Tickets, News, Export, and stats on his/her affiliates.

After adding the information on the Profile tab, go to the Password tab.
You should enter the user’s password, which will be later used as a password to login into Affise Admin panel.
The password you enter to the fields must meet the requirements that are shown in the picture above.
❗ Only the General manager may change the user's e-mail and password.
How to delete a User account?
In case you want to remove a user account from the Admin panel, you need to click the 'Delete' button on the user edit page:
To remove a user from the Admin panel, you should write the word "delete" in the pop-up window. Make sure the word is written without any blanks or foreign symbols.
❗ This action cannot be undone. This will permanently delete the selected user from all DB sources.
Once the user’s account is created, you can move further to granting specific permissions to a particular user over the General, Automation, Statistics and Users sections:
Now you can permit/prohibit access to different Stats slices or different actions which can be done with users, affiliates and advertisers:
Permissions can be:
a) deny access - it means that a user is not allowed to view a specific slice or to perform a particular action.
b) read access - it means that a user is allowed to view a specific slice.
c) write access - it means that a user is allowed to perform a particular action.
The difference between Sections and Permissions is that permissions is that permissions are currently more flexible: they allow users to view/edit particular subsections(/items) on the panel or prohibit access to them at all. Sections can allow or prohibit access to the whole section:
You can manage Users via API as well:
New Affiliate Manager

❗ If you want your new Affiliate Manager has access only to some sections (ex. Dashboard, Affiliates, Tickets, News) you need to select particular sections in the 'User edit page' - > 'Sections' Tab:
