Creating a User

We get it – on large worksites, it's hard to keep track of everyone. In Lightship, you can see who's on your site, and where they are, at all times.

To create a new user, click on the “People” icon in the main menu. This will give you a list of all the users in your system. To create a new user, click “create” at the bottom of the menu.


  1. Enter the first and last name of the person and their email address.
  2. Next, assign your user a role. Options for roles are Administrator, Dispatch, Mobile, or Web Viewer.
  3. Click the checkbox if you'd like to create the user on your Maps site as well.
  4. Click “Create” to save the user.

This will bring you to the person details page, where you can input their phone numbers, change their notification settings and role, add them to groups, assign devices to them, and also see all system activity in which they’re involved.


Role Descriptions

Administrator: Administrators have full permissions in the system, in both the web and mobile applications.
Dispatch: Dispatchers have limited permissions in the web application.
