For Practice Administrators, the purpose of the Security & Activity section is to view security items, view your activity log, and change your password.

To view your activity log, click “View Activity Log”.
To change your password, follow the instructions in the section above.
Practice Administrator viewing everyone else’s profile
When a Practice Administrator views the staff profile of any other user, they see the following:
The Practice Administrator sees security items, including the last date and time the user logged in, the user’s IP address, and the web browsers recently used by that user.
The Practice Administrator can also see the activity log of that user.
The Practice Administrator can also reset that user’s password. To do so, click “Reset Password”. Click the green “Reset Password” button. A pop up box with a temporary password appears. Write it down and give it to the user – the password is case sensitive and does include the dashes. The user will use the temporary password to log in. Be sure to manually type, and do not copy and paste, the temporary password. After they log in the system will prompt them to create a new password.
Users other than Practice Administrators viewing other user's profiles
Users not assigned the role of Practice Administrator do not see this section.
