There are two types of users for SquaredUp Dashboard Server:
- Standard users
What is the difference between administrators and standard users?
Only SquaredUp administrators can manage SquaredUp, which includes the following tasks:
- Create, edit, and delete dashboards
- Create or delete a Team Folder (Enterprise edition)
- Add new PowerShell profiles and integrations (such as Web API, ServiceNow, Azure Application Insights, etc.)
- Edit the global dashboard navigation structure
How many users and administrators can I add?
The number of users that can log into SquaredUp is restricted by the number of licences (Named Users) you have purchased from SquaredUp.
By default, every user that logs into SquaredUp for the first time gets added to the list of Named Users and consumes one licence. For more information, see How to manage Named Users
Do I have to add each user and administrator manually?
No, you can use Active Directory or any Windows user groups you already have set up. You just need to make sure that the user account is in the correct group on the server where SquaredUp Dashboard Server is installed:
- Standard users need to be in the local "Users" group (see How to add a User)
- Administrators need to be in the local "Administrators" or "SquaredUpAdministrators" group (see How to make a user a SquaredUp Dashboard Server administrator).
Can I give users access to specific dashboards?
If you purchased the Enterprise Edition, you can use Team Folders. When you publish dashboards in Team Folders, you can control which users can see them. You can also give users more specific permissions, for example, you can allow users that are not administrators to create or edit the dashboards in a Team Folder.

How to add a Standard User
To enable a standard user to log into SquaredUp, the user needs to be added to the local user's group on the server where SquaredUp Dashboard Server is installed.
- Open the Windows application Computer Management on the server where SquaredUp Dashboard Server is installed.
- Go to Local Users and Groups.
- Open the subfolder Groups.
- Choose the group Users and add the user to this group. You can add a user by creating a new user, adding existing local users or groups, or adding them via Active Directory.
