Phase 3 - Config and Admin Options

User Setup

You must consider which user types may be useful for you to set up and what the rules appropriate to those users may be. For example, you may want to allow Staff to park in different lots than Visitors. User Types will lay the groundwork for you to do this.  Once you have decided what types you will be using, you can use this wiki article to set them up.  

You will also need to decide what information you will require when a new user creates a profile on your system.
Refer to this wiki article for setup information.  

You will also need to set up the Vehicle description information and your offense locations.

Email Template Setup

Email Templates that are created for communications with your clients are stored in this area in OPS-COM. Currently, you can edit the look and feel. In the future, you will be able to set up your email templates.
For more information about editing Email Templates, refer to this wiki article.

System Messaging

System messages allow information to be shared across multiple pages through the use of short code tokens and they also deliver the content to your clients that is important to you.

The User Portal is the site you will send your clients to. From there they will create an account, manage their vehicles, and purchase temporary and standard permits. Your staff can customize the look and feel of this portal by editing the standard templates that come with OPS-COM. Please refer to the System Messaging Checklist for very detailed information.

Final Preparations Before Go Live

Now that the system is set up and you are familiar with OPS-COM, it is important to do a final review of the User Portal to ensure you are happy with the way it is presented to your customers. You can create a test user on the system and log in to have a look around and see what the user experience is like.

Make sure you are happy with all messaging that is presented to your clients.
