On this tab, you can toggle between two views:
- The Users view displays a list of all users that have been set up in your Datto RMM account. Here, you can add and manage users.

|Component Level||Determines which components the user can view in the Component Library when clicking on the Components tab. Refer to Manage components. Select a number between 1 (Basic) and 5 (Super).
For example, a user who has a Component Level of 5 will be able to view all components when clicking on the Components tab, while a user with a Component Level of 3 will only be able to view components with a Component Level of 3, 2, or 1.
|Security Levels||Select the user's default security level by clicking on the radio button. The default security level will automatically be assigned to them when they log into the Web Portal.
You may assign a user more than one security level by selecting the check box next to another security level. This will allow them to switch between security levels in the Agent's menu options or within the Web Portal using the security level drop-down menu next to their username. For more information on managing security levels and how to add new ones, refer to Security levels.
