Company > Setting Up A New User

This guide is for setting up a new User within the main builder's HammerTech system.

Users are set up and managed through Administration > User Management.

HammerTech defines a User as an individual working for the company licensing the software (i.e. the Main Builder).

When someone working for a Sub-contractor has a login to a HammerTech account, they are also known as a User, but they have different access levels, either as a Primary Contact or a Nominated Representative. Primary Contacts and Nominated Representatives are set up and managed through the Employer's profile. For more information about these roles, see here:

Setting up a Primary Contact
Setting up a Nominated Rep

All other individuals using the system, such as inducted workers, do NOT have a login to HammerTech and are managed by Users through Employers and/or Personnel modules.

NOTE: To add an existing User to a new Project, you can do this both at a Company Level via Administration > User Management or at a Project Level via Project Settings (see Project > Adding and Managing Users)
