As an administrative representative

Administrative representatives should use the Delegated Access application to set up users. This is a security setup application available through iLinkBlue ( only. Administrative representatives will find the “Delegated Access” menu option on the iLinkBlue home page.

2. Who notifies my users that they are set up with security access?

iLinkBlue will notify your users for you. When the administrative representative creates a user in the Delegated Access application, the system then generates a setup notification email to the user.

3. How do my users get their username?

The username is the email address used to set up the person with iLinkBlue access. Once setup, the Delegated Access application will send your user a notification email with their username.
