Admin Manager Overview

The gear icon provides access to the Admin window. Clicking it opens a new window containing WebEOC administration features. When this option is selected, the Admin window opens in a new tab in your browser.


Database Size

The Admin window's Home page contains server and support information specific to your instance of WebEOC. Clicking the link associated with Database Size opens up the Database Size window, giving you an overview of the WebEOC database space currently in use by specific elements. Optionally, click any element to remove it from the pie chart. The colored circle associated with the element is no longer filled. Click the element again to add it back into the chart.


Tabs and Subtabs

Aside from the Admin window's Home page, you will find features and functions grouped into tabs and subtabs. Tabs provide better context for the functions found within each. For example, as you work in the Groups subtab, at a glance you can see that Users, Positions, and Sessions are also managed from the Users tab.


Subtabs appear in a logical order. The tasks that are most common appear first. For example, tasks related to managing users are more commonly used than those available for Sessions.
Each component manager is described in detail throughout the Hub. The following lists provide a summary of each Admin Manager, grouped by tabs.

The Home tab displays system-wide messages and server and support information.

The Users tab contains the following managers:

  • Users – Configure user accounts and assign credentials that enable users to access WebEOC. Credentials include usernames and passwords.
