Administering Account Responsibility

To avoid having accounts with no responsible party, run the Accounts without a Responsible Party report. You can assign responsibility using the Responsible Party property on the Account Details page for each account, or bulk assign them from the Computers ViewMany page.

By default, the type of responsible party is set to Person, but you can edit the EmpowerID System Settings to change it to any actor type. See Changing the Responsible Party Type for more information.

  1. In the Navigation Sidebar, expand System Logs and select Reports.
  2. Scroll down and click the Accounts without a Responsible Party tile.

  3. A grid populates with information about all accounts in the EmpowerID system that do not have a responsible party.
