Creating and Configuring a Person


People are the ones that utilize the access control system on a regular basis. One of the most powerful features of BluSKY is its ability to manage and control the various aspects of any Person in the system.

Creating a Person

  1. Log in and navigate to People. Main Menu-> Administration-> People
  2. In the lower left-hand side click the  icon.
  3. Select the type of person you wish to create. ( Vendor or Occupant ).
  4. Based on the previous choice, select the Vendor or Occupant.
  5. Enter the First Name, Last Name, and Middle Initial.
  6. Provide the person with an ID Number, if applicable.
  7. If the Person will be temporary or will begin in the future, use the Start and End Time Fields to specify.
    • Note: If you do not specify a time the Person will start immediately and will not expire.
    • Note:  Click Here Plus Sign.png for more info on how to set times for a person.
      • Select CalendarIcon.png to get a calendar for the start or end time.  By selecting CalendarIcon.png a Date/Time pop-up will appear.
      • Simple: Select "Today" at the bottom of the pop-up.  This will select the current day and time. Ex 4/15/2015 04:45 PM
      • Custom:
        • Note: Select the top center of the pop-up to go back in time.  Ex. if displaying hour, selecting the top middle of the pop-up will display day.  The initial pop-up will display the current month's calendar.
        • Select the month and year - select the current month and year at the top center of the pop-up.  A new pop-up will appear, use the arrows to the left and right of the year to select a new year, select the month in the main body of the pop-up. Upon selecting the month you will go to the month view calendar.
        • Select the Day of the month: Choose the day you want from the body of the pop-up.  Once the day is selected the pop-up changes to an hour view.
        • Select the Hour:   Select the hour you want.  There is both an AM and a PM list, so make sure to select the right time.
        • Select minute: This is the final selection.  You are given 5 minute intervals to choose from.  Once the minutes are selected your choice is shown in the main window. Ex 4/15/2015 04:45 PM
