Navigating Launchpad as a User

Navigating Launchpad as a User

Introduction


Welcome to the KODE OS Launchpad! After reading this short user guide, you will be able to manage your users, products, and access for anything related to KODE OS. The Launchpad will enable you to ensure that all of your users can have a peace of mind while using KODE OS as all administrative features will be handled by assigned personnel or by the partner itself.

The Launchpad as an integral component of KODE OS has a seamless and a fast user experience. Any instance or user can be added, changed, or deactivated in a matter of seconds. In addition, for every channel instance the Launchpad is able to be integrated with MyMSI to give you an extensive overview of BAS and BMS implementation in all of your buildings, campuses, and portfolios.

Login and Authentication

In order to login to your instance of the Launchpad, you need to access a link that will be provided to you by KODE Labs, Inc. or one of its channel partners. The link will be in the following format:

yourcompanyname.kodelabs.com

Upon accessing the link, you will be presented with a login screen where you will input your provided username and password. Upon providing the information successfully and selecting Login, you will be taken to the homepage view of the Launchpad.

If you belong to two or more organizations, you will be able to select the desired instance after the initial login. All of your instances will be accessible via the same username and password.

The Launchpad also offers the ability to add an additional layer of security during the login process via Two Factor Authentication (2FA). This can be set-up by navigating to the Manage Account option in the User Admin section. 2FA can be enabled via Text Messaging (SMS) or via a Third Party Authenticator.

Homepage

The homepage view is divided into three sections:

  1. The left-handed sidebar which allows you to navigate to Apps, Sites, Company, and back to the Homepage.

  2. The status section, where you can see various metrics such as the number of users, total integrated square footage, sites, and the available individual apps to which access can be given or revoked.

  3. User Admin section located in the upper right corner, where you can edit your user profile, manage your account, and safely log out.

Apps

In the apps sub-menu, you can see all the possible products and/or features that are provided under the KODE OS umbrella along with information on its access status, activation date and number of users currently using each product or feature.

Selecting any of the listed products will take you to an App Details window where you can see further details as well as assign the selected product or feature to additional users.

In addition you can also see allowed roles for each individual app as well as the users who have access to it. From the Users tab you can also assign additional users via the Assign Users button in the upper right hand corner. Please note that any users will have to be previously added via the Users sub-menu.

Sites

In the sites sub-menu you can see all your published and unpublished sites in a list view. In addition, you can also add new sites via the Add Site button on the upper right hand corner. After selecting this option, you will be prompted to fill out the required details related to the site. Once the site has been created the information will be transferred to all the apps that are linked to the client.

Upon creating the site, you will be directed back to the Sites view where you can make your building selection in order to unpublish, delete, or edit the building information. 

Each user can be assigned to their specific site. You can assign users to sites by using the Admin panel on KODE OS, or assign sites on user creation.

Company

In this section, you can view the organization details, manage Sing-In Methods, manage authentication & security, and assign users who will have access to the Launchpad as well as myMSI and KODE OS
