1- User Access Management

Site Administrators have the ability to manage what other users see and do within your organization’s Premier page. When new users are invited to Premier, they must be assigned to an Access Group and a User Role by your Dell Account Team member or your organization’s Site Administrator.

Access Groups define what users can see (e.g. available catalogs, product info, payment types, reporting, and custom links).

User Roles define what individuals can do (e.g. buy versus shop, view eQuotes, and manage users).

A. Managing User Roles
All users must be assigned to one of eight User Roles within their Access Group. User Roles control a user's ability to do the following:
  • Place orders.
  • Retrieve eQuotes created by other users.
  • Manage User Role assignments.
  • Manage Access Group settings and membership.
Eight User Roles defined:

User Roles

Site Administrator: Site Administrators have access to all Premier shopping and buying functionality, all site customization tools and all user management tools. They have the sole authority to create, modify and assign users to Access Groups and also have comprehensive shopping and buying privileges across all Access Groups within their Premier page.

 

User Administrators: User Administrators can assign user roles to others within their own Access Group. A User Administrator cannot create or modify Access Groups, but can invite new users into their Access Group. In effect, a User Administrator does not customize site content for users, but can specify the level of buying authorization for users within their Access Group. User Administrators also have comprehensive shopping and buying privileges and can retrieve the eQuotes of any user in their Access Group.

 

Site eQuote Buyer: Site eQuote Buyers have comprehensive buying privileges but no site customization privileges that can affect other users. They can save and retrieve eQuotes saved by any member of any Access Group, and place orders.

 

Site eQuote Shopper: Site eQuote Shoppers can view any content that is specified for their Access Group. They can save and retrieve eQuotes saved by any member of any Access Group, but have no buying privileges.

 

eQuote Buyer: eQuote Buyers have comprehensive buying privileges but no site customization privileges that can affect other users. They can only save and retrieve eQuotes saved by members of their own Access Group, and place orders.

 

Buyer: Buyers can save and retrieve only their own eQuotes, and place orders.

 

Shopper: Shoppers can view any content that is specified for their Access Group and can save eQuotes, but have no buying privileges.

 

Shopper No Price: Shoppers can view any content that is specified for their Access Group and can save eQuotes, but have no buying privileges. Users with this role will not be able to view pricing.

Creating a new address

B. Managing your Address Book

Applying a priority gives you the ability to set a single address as default. This default address prepopulates during checkout. Or you can designate multiple addresses as favorites so they appear higher on the list for faster access. At any time you can change the priority of an address which will only take effect in your user profile.
Your Address Book allows you to access a list of saved addresses, the priority applied to each address and if it’s shipping or billing address.
If your Address Book is not locked, you can make changes to an existing address by selecting “Edit”.
