Before you continue:  In case you have multiple factories in Evocon, please make sure you have the necessary factories selected as active (more information here).

Who are Shift View users in Evocon?

Shift View user role in Evocon is for production operators. The reason to call it a “Shift View” role or user, is that these users only have access to Shift View, where they see the information on current and previous production shifts.

In the Shift View, operators can register themselves to work on the shift, add comments for production stops, mark product changeovers and mark production scrap. This input that operators give is very important in getting correct OEE statistics and understanding the reasons for production downtime.

Important information about the Shift View user

  1. For ease of use, security and data access control we suggest having one user with a Shift View role per station, machine or production line. This user will be used by all the operators who work at that station and each operator registers themselves in the Shift View when they start working. Follow this link to see how this is done.
  2. In case the production operator is responsible for multiple machines and needs to access real-time production information on those machines simultaneously then it is also possible to give this user access to multiple production machines or stations that are connected to Evocon.
  3. Users with the Shift View role should always be logged in with the password saved to the local computer. This ensures that operators do not have access to Shift View outside of work which minimises the probability of malicious or accidental production data manipulation.
  4. We also recommend that the factory administrator creates all users with Shift View role in one factory so that there is one person in the company who is responsible for managing those users and their passwords.

How to create a new Shift View user?

  1. Firstly, go to “Settings” and “Users” and click “+ User” to add a new user:

  2. Enter name and username for the user:

  3. Click on "+Role" and choose "Shift View user" as user role (in case of multi-factory setup select the factory also).

  4. In the station list define which stations the user will have access to and whether the access should be read & write or read-only.

  5. Enable time restriction if necessary (more information here). Click "Save".

  6. Enter an e-mail address that could be used to reset the account's password. Administrators can use their own e-mail address for multiple users, so they can reset the passwords of Shift View users very quickly via e-mail.

  7. Select the necessary languages and the default station (more information here) for this account


    Note: In case multiple operators who speak different languages use the same Shift View account, you can define multiple languages for the account and operators can easily choose between these languages in Shift View.

  8. Set a password and click "Save".
