For single users, this should not be a concern. Feel free to step over it.


If you have a company with several engineers or drivers, then you should take a quick glance at how to create a new user.


Let's talk user types (or roles). Users can be "normal" (resources), "admin" (back office staff) or "super-admin". If you're the user attached to the LetsJobIt subscription, you're the "super-admin" (there can be only one!).


Admin users can see pretty much anything in the system but they cannot change the data (they are also absolutely free - our courtesy). This role is for the typical back-office admin user, who needs access to the app to see what everybody else is doing and collect data from it.


Normal users are attached to one resource, generally a vehicle. They are also configurable in the "routing" settings (more on that later). This is where a multi-user company configures their user-vehicles.


Now, this is when it gets interesting. An admin user can also be attached to a resource (and, thus, a they are paid users). We'll see that below.


Let's take a look. It's really easy. Say you want to setup John Smith as a driver in your company. He works for you in your delivery business. John's email is john@smith.com



Simple, right? Email, first name and last name. Then you have this weird field called "ERP vehicleID". Worry about it only if you are integrating your back-office system with our API. Otherwise, just carry on.


Then you're asked about the user type: "normal" or "admin". Choose the type that applies.


The "Send invitation by email", when checked, will send an email to the user asking him to "join" with LetsJobIt. We've seen that already in our previous article: Join (Sign Up or register as new user). Feel free to revisit.


If the user is a sub-contractor (meaning, you're inviting a different company that works for you as a sub-contractor to join in), tick that box. That company will be invited to join LestJobIt as a sub-contractor, linked to your company. More on that later. Fill-in the sub-contractor name in the corresponding field.


Now that you've created your user, you can either join yourself on behalf of the user (and let him know his password) or wait until he joins LetsJobIt following the email invitation he's received.
