Subscription Owners and Managers - How to grant someone permission to generate reports on behalf of others (US)

The cover page of client reports is normally printed with the name, address, credentials, etc. of the user generating the report. However, oftentimes an assistant is tasked with generating a report on behalf of an accredited adviser. In this instance, the name which they want on the report is the adviser’s name, not their own.  

Users who have been assigned a special role can generate a report on behalf of another. Details on how subscription owners or managers can assign users these permissions can be found in the last section of this article. 



Subscription Managers and Subscription Owners will have the permissions needed to grant individual users the role that is required to allow the to generate reports on behalf of their colleagues.

1. If you are a Subscription Owner or Manager, log into the Voyant US website. 

You can do this by either visiting our US website and logging in or by opening AdviserGo, select the profile icon (top right) and select Administration, as pictured below. 



2. Select Users to search for the user within your subscription. 

3. Once you find your colleague select your colleague's name and click Edit Profile (in the left navigation). 

4. Tick the ​"Generate Report on Behalf of a user in Subscription" role from the list of roles beneath your colleague's profile information. 

5. Click Update to save your changes. ​


How users with this role can then generate reports on behalf of their colleagues

Users with this special role will see, on the Reports screen in AdviserGo, a special Cover Page section at the top of their list of selected reports. 

1. Click Customize to open the cover page. 


2. Click "Report Presented By" and the dropdown list will show all of the users currently connected to the client case. Select the "Show more users" option to find other users in your subscription. 




3. Selecting a user, details from the selected user's profile will be shown in a preview of the details will appear on the cover page of the report once it has been generated.
