MySettings is an application that allows the logged on user to manage their own RunMyProcess account. From the application, users can set a wide range of options; from simple things such as setting their preferred language or changing their password to more complex activities such as delegating all their RunMyProcess tasks to another user for a set period of time.
The settings are divided into categories which are offered as tabs on the My Settings homepage.
2 The Homepage
The buttonbar at the top of the screen enables you to save your changes and refresh the data .
The user's account options are divided into categories which are represented by tabs on the homepage; there are tabs for Settings, Delegations, Connected Apps and Privacy, Preferences and User Metadata, Lane Membership and Support Authorizations.
2.1 Settings Tab
This page is divided into three sections: Standard Settings, Advanced Settings and Change Password.
2.1.1 Standard Settings
Here the logged on user can view the details held about themselves, including their email address and profile. There are two possible profiles, namely Administrator and User. An administrator has full access to the whole platform while a user can only access project resources for which he has been granted access rights. Users who are administrators can edit their name using this page while non-administrative users can only view it. All users can choose a language for the RunMyProcess interface here.
The user status and billing status are also displayed in this section. A user account has one of three possible status - active, inactive or pending. These status are colour coded - red for inactive, amber for pending and green for active.
|Active||The user can use the RunMyProcess platform.|
|Pending||The user has been created, but has not yet accessed the application.|
|Overdue||The user has been de-activated and can no longer access RunMyProcess.|
|Blocked||The user has been locked out of their account because they failed to login successfully within the permitted number of attempts.|
A pending user should connect, change his default password and accept the license agreements.
A user's billing status can be in one of two states - either overdue or in order. These status are also colour coded - red for overdue and green for in order. If a user's license expires, the billing status will become red and the user status will become amber.
|In Order||The user can use the RunMyProcess platform.|
|Overdue||The user cannot perform any action on the platform because his license has expired.|
2.1.2 Advanced Settings
Further settings can be viewed here for the logged on user. This section is collapsed by default for those with a user profile but is expandable. The settings that can be viewed from here are described below:
|Receive Administration Messages||If this is ticked then the user will receive messages regarding RunMyProcess's maintenance operations.|
|View other users||If this is ticked then the user has access to user lists. This includes user lists in the User Management application, the IDE and a web interface (e.g. users of a lane list). This setting can only be viewed.|
|View metadata||If this is ticked then the user has access to view metadata in the IDE, the User Management Application and in any Web Interface. This setting can only be viewed.|
|View IDE||If this is ticked then the user has access to the RunMyProcess IDE which enables users to develop applications. This setting can only be viewed.|
|IDE language||This option is visible if the user has access to the IDE and enables users to choose a language for the IDE. The languages available are English, French, Spanish and Japanese.|
2.1.3 Change Password
This section enables the user to change their password.
This page enables you to create and manage delegations and to view current representations. Delegating your tasks means that for a certain period of time, you will grant a colleague the right to validate, cancel and save all your assigned tasks. This can be useful if you are unavailable for some time.
Representations are delegations that other users have made where the current user is the one they have delegated their tasks to.
2.2.1 Creating a Delegation
This is accomplished by completing the information in the top pane.
You can search for and choose a colleague to delegate to from the drop down list. By clicking in the Date boxes you can choose the start and end dates for the delegation from a calendar. The date and time fields are editable.
There are two types of delegations: global and project.A global delegation delegates all of your tasks while project delegations will only delegate your tasks for a particular project. If you choose to delegate at project level, you will be required to choose a project from the drop down list. A user can have several configured delegations per project but only one delegation at global level. The global delegation will apply to all projects that don't already have a delegation.
When you are satisfied with the delegation information click on to create the delegation.
2.2.2 Current Delegations
Delegations created by the user are displayed in a table on the page.
A created delegation can have a status of either "pending" or "active". These are colour coded, pending delegations are amber while active ones are green .
When a delegation is created its status is set to "pending". A pending delegation can be cancelled by clicking on , the cancelled "pending" delegation will not appear in the delegation history. An active delegation can be stopped manually by clicking on or it will be stopped automatically when the end date is reached. The stopped delegation will be visable in the delegation history and the delegate will no longer be able to access the tasks. Stopped or expired delegations have a status of "Deactivated".
2.2.3 Current Representations
This table shows the details of the delegations that have been made by other users where the current user is the delegate i.e. where the current user has been granted authority to validate, cancel and save all of another user's assigned tasks for a fixed period of time.
2.2.4 Delegation History
This table shows delegations that have been created by the current user that have been active but are now inactive, this could be because the time has expired or because the user cancelled the delegation.
