Incidents that have been shared by other operations can be viewed in the dashboard of the application. To view these records, click on the Private/Community toggle button above the overview table. To view the shared incident description of an incident, click on it in the overview table. This opens the incident description in a pop-up window.

Since the incident information stored in the HIRE system is sensitive, it is critical to tightly control access to the system.

The default role for users is ‘user’. Only users that need to manage user accounts should be given the ‘opadmin” role.
