Local User

When Lansweeper scans a Windows computer, it finds the currently logged on user account and displays this on the computer's asset page. If this user does not exist yet, Lansweeper automatically creates a new user page.

Users in a Windows Network are part of an Active Directory Domain. They can log in to Lansweeper using their Active Directory credentials. You can configure permissions for specific users.

User pages are also automatically created for users mailing into the Lansweeper Helpdesk, these users will not have any AD or permission information associated with them.

Scanned User Information

If found, a user page will list the following information:

  • Name
  • Active Directory Domain
  • Active Directory User Path
  • Last computer
  • Email address
  • Lansweeper Helpdesk tickets
  • Computers logged onto

Under 'Computers logged onto' you can find a short summary of the computer's domain, OS, and the logon dates.
The following information can be added manually:

  • Description
  • User image
  • Company
  • Department
  • Info
  • Address
  • Telephone
  • Mobile
  • Fax

On your own user page, you can also find your Helpdesk Agent Teams, Lansweeper permissions, and personal settings.

User-Asset relations

You can manually add user-asset relations that show the relation between your users and hardware. This way, you can better keep track of who has, for example, borrowed a beamer.
Various relations can be specified like 'is borrowed by' or 'is owned by' along with a date. You can add custom relations as well. Lansweeper also keeps a history of these relations.
