  • Emails can be sent to remind users, reviewers, and reviewer’s managers that there are open campaigns they need to take action upon.
  • Below are the options for email reminders that can be sent.
  • Send reminder email to reviewer
    • This will send an email to all reviewers that have an open campaign which are not 100% completed.

  • For example – A Campaign end date of 12/11/2020, a campaign reviewer with an open campaign and users still to perform reviews against, will receive a reminder email on 12/9/2020 and every day until 12/11/2020 or until they complete the review.
Campaign Instructions #

    • Note – once you ‘Save’ the campaign, these instructions cannot be updated.
Launch Campaign #
  • Once you ‘Save’ a newly created Campaign, you will be presented with a list of Campaigns which are in ‘Ready’ status. You can Launch a campaign from the Launch button if needed. SecurEnds recommends that you go to Campaign->Gear icon Action->View first before launching. This allows the creator to visually inspect a few reviewers first to ensure the campaign has the correct scope.
  • You can also Launch a Campaign from the Action Gear icon
  • Click on Launch option beside the campaign name, a pop up will appear to walk you thru the email options for the campaign. These emails are independent from the Campaign Reminder emails you setup when you created the campaign.

    • Yes – All reviewers and delegates will be sent a Launch Campaign email
  • When selecting Yes, you will be provided with additional email options just to be sure.
    • Option 1, will send the Launch Campaign email to all reviewers.
    • Option 2, you can exclude certain reviewers from getting the Launch Campaign email. A list of all managers will appear below the template selection. You will need to select the check box manually for those whom you do not want to receive this email. Depending on the size of the campaign, you can have a lot of reviewers.
  • You have the option to select the Launch Campaign email template to use for the campaign. If you created your own Launch Campaign email template, you can select it here.
  • On successful launch of campaign, The status of the campaign now changes to Open.
  • Once the campaign status changes to Open, reviewers can perform User Access Reviews.
  • Once the campaign is Open, a SecurEnds Admin has several options. From Campaigns->Action Gear icon .
    • Select View to see how reviewers are progressing with the campaign. You can View a Reviewers detail by selecting View.
      • Select Review to see the elections done for that user.
      • Select Update Manager to change who can do the review. This will not change the manager for the System of Record.
        • The SecurEnds admin’s will get notified of a manager change. But the new manager who becomes the reviewer does not get notified unless there are campaign reminders configured to be sent out or if the Admin uses the “Remind” option to manually remind folks of pending elections (view the Remind feature below).
      • Select an Action from the drop down to provide a Termination Date for the user.
        • This will remove the elections from a Reviewer’s campaign scope.
  • Other options include:
    • Select Excluded Users to see who was excluded from the campaign. Most users who “fail” to fall under a Review Type will default to the Default Reviewer. In the event that this requirement fails, excluded users will show with this action. Do not confuse this with the Bulk Exclude action at the application level.
      • Note: Users in a campaign who fail to default to the Default Reviewer as a last resort, most likely are reviewing themselves. Setting up a Campaign Restriction can allow this user to review themselves and be included in the campaign. But this must be done before a campaign is created.
    • Select Details to see all the Campaign information
    • Select Edit to modify the Campaign Name and/or the Campaign End Date. The Start Date is not editable since the campaign has been launched.
    • Select Close to end the campaign. The SecurEnds Admin can do this at anytime. The campaign is not considered complete unless the Admin manually closes the campaign. Once in a Closed status, you have the ability to Re-Launch a campaign. All Launch Campaign email options will again be presented and will only apply to those reviewers who are not 100% complete.
    • Select Remind to send all reminder emails to all reviews who are not yet 100% complete with their reviews. You will have an option to Copy the reviewer’s manager.
    • Select Delete to remove the campaign. You will lose all data for the campaign so select this option wisely.
  • Delegations
    • There are 2 types of delegations that can be made: People Delegation and Credential Delegation. The Credential Delegation need to be in place before you create a campaign. The People Delegation needs to be in place before you launch a campaign.
    • People Delegation
      • When it is known that the original reviewer will not be available for a User Access Review, the SecurEnds Admin can delegate the reviews to another individual. This will not remove the original reviewer from the User Access Review or receiving campaign emails, delegation will simply allow another user to view and perform the User Access Reviews on behalf of the original reviewer. If enabled, both parties will receive an email that there has been a delegation for an upcoming review.
        • Assigning a delegation needs to be in place before you launch a campaign.
        • If a delegation needs to be made in the middle of the campaign, the Admin will need to close the campaign, put the delegation in place and then re-launch the campaign.
        • You can use the Delete action to remove the delegate at any time.
