People View. Custom Views for Personal Accounts Management

This article describes how to create views in Targetprocess showing people as cards. It also contains some productivity tips and best usage practices.

The views are helpful for Administrators and users with authorized roles such as Project Managers, Team Managers. These users can manage accounts and change personal account settings for other users.

People View

People view is the view showing Users as cards. Most likely the view already exists in your left menu. If it is missing, create the view from template.

To open the personal details view for any user, find a user's card in the view. Double click the card. Select the Account Settings tab to view and edit Personal Account Settings.

One By One view mode

One by One view mode is a rather efficient one when you reviewing personal settings for many users. The view is divided into two parts. On the left side, you'll see user cards. Once you click on any card, on the right side personal details of the selected user are displayed.

Quick Filters

If you have many users in your system, on the People view it is possible to apply a quick filter to find a required user. To search, just type first letters of the first or last name of the user to the filter area above the view and press Enter. All users that don't match your search become hidden.

How to create a Custom view for People?

You can create your own private or public custom view with user cards ordered or filtered in a specific way. First, click the Create View button for a new view. On the Setup tab select User as card type you want to see.
