NAVIGATION Setup > Users
Users in Datto RMM are individuals with a user account. On the Users page, you can create new user accounts, and view and manage existing ones.
NOTE The New UI is automatically set as the default interface for users that are created in the New UI.

|Component Level||Determines which components the user can view in the Component Library. Refer to Component Library. Low (2) is selected by default; however, you can choose from the following options:
• Basic (1)
• Low (2)
• Medium (3)
• High (4)
• Super (5)
EXAMPLE For example, a user whose component level is set to Super (5) will be able to view all components in the Component Library; while a user whose component level is set to Medium (3) will only be able to view components with a component level of Medium (3), Low (2), or Basic (1). When editing a component's component level, a user can only select a component level that is available to them based on their component level in their user settings.
