<<Back to Analytica Cloud Player

With an ACP Group Account users can share Analytica models with each other and deploy models to end users to run via the web. An administrator can set up multiple projects, invite new users, and set their roles on each project as a Reviewer, Author, or Manager. This page introduces the features of a Group Account.

The Models tab

After logging into a Group account, you'll first see the Models tab, which lists the Models (and any data files) for a selected Project:

ACP3 group UI 01.png

It has these elements:

  • Account menu: If there is more than one, Press to see the list of Accounts you are a member of.
  • Project menu: Press to see a menu of your projects and select the project you want to view. It shows all the projects of which you are a member. When you log in, it shows the project you were in when you last logged out.
  • Add/Delete Project button: Only present for Managers and Account admins. Press to add a new project. or delete an existing one.
  • Models: The list of models, spreadsheets, or other data files in this project. Initially, they are sorted by Save date, most recent first. Click on the header "Model" to sort them alphabetically. Click again on Model to reverse the sort order by name, or sort by Save Date or File Size by clicking on the column headers..
  • Search field: Search for file names by entering text in the Search box. The model list adjusts to match file names containing that text as it is entered.

User Types

There are four types of user in an ACP Group account. This table shows their levels of access:

Privileges Admin Manager Author Reviewer
Run models
Save snapshots
Upload & download spreadsheets
Upload & download models
Delete models
Send email invites
Add users and assign users to projects
View subscription info
Add Projects
Delete Projects
Delete Users

You can see a version of this table in the Users tab of the ACP front-end by moving your cursor over the (?).

  • A user may have access to one or several projects, and may have different levels of access in each project.
  • A user has the same password for all projects.
  • A Manager for a project may add new users, including other Managers, and change access levels.

Admin users

  • Admin users have access to all projects, even those for which they are not explicitly assigned membership.
  • Admin users can set up new Projects and add Managers for those Projects. They can also delete users.
  • Lumina will set up one or more people as Admin users as requested by purchaser when creating a Group account (or ACP server installation). Contact Lumina if you want to add or change Admin users.


Users Tab

If you are an Admin or a Manager, you will see the Users tab. Click on it to view or manage users in the project. You won't see this tab if your role is Author or Reviewer in all Projects:

  • For admin users only, there is a button with the option to display all users or only the users who are members of the project.

To add a new user to a project

  • Press the Add Users Button at the bottom of the Users list.
  • Enter the email address(es) of the new user(s).
  • Separate email addresses by a comma or space if you add multiple users.
  • Select the User role as Manager, Reviewer or Author. (When adding multiple users, they must all have the same role on the project. To add users with different roles, add users with each role as a separate group.)
  • Optionally, edit the email you will send to invite the new users.
  • Press the Invite and add Users button.

After sending the invitation, you will receive a cc of the email to confirm it went out.

If an invited user is not already a user on another project in this Account, their invitation email will contain a randomized password. When they first sign in to the group account, ACP will prompt them to change their password.

Each user may have only one ACP password at a time on an ACP server. A user with an existing ACP password, e.g. for an individual ACP account or another Grop account, will be asked to use their existing password.

Manage users in a Group account

  • Initially only the users who are a member of the selected project will be listed.
  • For Admins, to see all users including those who are not members of this project, press the "Show all Users" button. Once this button is pressed the button text changes to "Only show members".

  • Press the 'Role in project' pulldown menu for a user to change the user role for the current project project, [Not a member, Manager, Author, Reviewer, Delete user].
  • [Delete User] deletes the user from all projects. Only an Admin for the account may do this.

  • For Admins, the Users tab shows a search box: As you type into that box, the list adjusts to show only members whose email name or organization (e.g. Lumina.com) matches what you’ve typed so far.

Group Account - Add and delete Projects

  • Account Admins can add or delete projects.

Note: The 'Home' project can't be deleted.

  • If you are an Admin, next to the Project pulldown menu there are '+/-' buttons. Select '+' to add a project, then enter the project name into the field provided. Select ' - ' to permanently delete a project.
  • If you attempt to add a project with the same name as an existing project, you will be prompted to enter a new project name.
