User Management Console Overview

Wave users at your organization can easily be managed through the User Management Console. Access to this console is based on your completion of User Management Training. Contact your Wave representative for more details about this process. This article is divided into two parts: an overview of what you will see in the console and how to navigate the basic functions of the console.

User Management Console

The User Management Console is where you can add, edit or remove Wave users at your organization. The following is an overview of the key sections and definitions.

7. Group Membership

  • Disabled - listing of all groups from which a user has been removed
8. Groups
  1. Number of groups of which user is a member
  2. Click on the + next to the column header to see all groups; those to which a member belongs will be indicated with a green box


UM Search

You can quickly find what you need in the User Management Console using the UM Search. This is a universal search of all columns for your search term(s). In the example, a search for "full launch" yields all users with that tag.

For columns with clearly defined value options, such as Yes/No, you can search by the column title and indicate true or false. For example, if you are looking for users who are blocked, you would search "blocked:true."

Customizing Your Console View

You can filter, search, and customize your view in the console much like you would in a spreadsheet.

Click on the "hamburger" icon to the right of any column header to select columns to view, filter users, and size columns. Click on a column header name to sort names alphabetically. You can also manually resize columns by left-clicking and holding on the line between two columns, which will allow you to adjust the column width.

UM Toolbar

When you check the box next to one or more users, the bottom toolbar of possible actions is activated. More details on ways to manage users using this toolbar are available in the User Management Guide.
