  1. Use this link to raise a ticket. It will be taken up by a member of the support team.
  2. The user licence will be added or removed, and you will now be able to manage the users in your system, as indicated in the sub-headings below.

  2. The user management table opens; it displays all the users, their roles, statuses, user licences and the GH User licences for the system (right-hand side).
