About User Management

User Management System is designed to provide control and visibility over employee access to DataSnipper, addressing issues related to over-deployment, user management challenges, visibility and accountability issues, and user provisioning. This feature is instrumental in achieving a streamlined and empowered user management experience.

Adding new users manually

If you‘d like to add users manually, you can do so by clicking on the “Add Users” button and providing users’ email by typing one by one, or by importing an email list in .CSV format. This option also allows you to invite external users, from outside the organization, if allowed.Screenshot 2024-06-04 142536

Please note that the external users you invite will have full access to DataSnipper and its functionalities. This means that they will also take up one seat within your license.

Removing users

If for whatever reason you need to revoke access to DataSnipper from specific users, you can do so by removing selected users from the Dashboard. Simply select them and press the “Remove user(s)” button.Screenshot 2024-06-04 143041-1


To deactivate an end user’s license, you also need to remove them from your organization’s identity provider (IdP).

SSO login in Excel

Now that you have SSO configured, users from your organization who should have access to DS (as configured in your directory) can open their Excel with the DataSnipper add-in installed and sign in to it to start snipping! Read more about the sign-in options here.
