The manager’s role in Lucat

As a manager you are ultimately responsible for ensuring that the information in Lucat about your organisation and your staff  is correct and that it reflects the structure of your organisation. This means that if the responsibilities and level of authority of a user change, the information and authorisations in Lucat must also be changed.

When one of your staff members has requested authorisation to a certain system, you will receive an email with instructions. In Lucat, you can certify that an application is correct with regard to the needs of your employees. Only after you have approved a request will the employee gain access to the system concerned. You may also receive authorisation requests from people who do not belong to your cost centre, but are affiliated with your organisation.

You can delegate the task of approving authorisations to one or more person/s. That person is to apply in Lucat for an authorisation called “Delegerad attest” (Delegated authorisation approval) for you to approve. You will both receive email notifications, but only one of you needs to approve. This is a convenient feature to take advantage of during holiday seasons.

As a manager, you can see a report of all your employees and their authorisations in Lucat.

For questions

As a manager, you can always contact your directory administrator if you have questions about Lucat.
