Address Book and User Types

The Address Book is a compilation of the names and contact information for all Novatus User Types:

  • Users - Program users are added to the Novatus system by your Administrator.
  • Company People (Contacts) - Points of Contact (POCs) for a company are added to the Company Profile via the Add Person button in the People browse screen. The browse screen is accessed by selecting the People link in the Company Profile. Once a company person is added, a Person Profile is created for that person.
  • Legal Entity Person - similar to a company person except that the POC is added to a Company Profile that has been marked as a legal entity.
  • External People - These are people whose email addresses have been added to the Novatus system so that they can take part in specialized program features, such as Document Packages, eSignature process, and Supplier Registrations.

The Address Book also stores any email distribution lists that have been created by users with the Email Distribution List permission, and is automatically available for use in many of the Novatus program features, including Messaging, Events, Scheduled Reports, Workflows, Scorecards, and Project Teams. However, distribution lists are not available for use with the Document Package and eSignature Package wizards.

The Address Book contains key information for each individual, such as their email address, work number, and the roles they play in the Novatus system. A distribution list allow users to quickly and easily communicate with several people without having to select each person individually.

The Address Book is easy to use since it allows you to quickly locate a person or distribution list using the Search option.
