If you use the Customer Portal to receive translation work directly from your customers, you need to tell memoQWeb about these customers.

Each customer appoints contact people. These people will log in to the Customer Portal, and send in translation requests, or check on their status.

For each customer, there can be three types of contact people:

Requester: This is more or less a project manager on the customer's end. A requester can upload files for translation, get a quote, accept the quote (that is, start the project), check progress, and download exported documents. A requester can view statistics for projects they started.

Observer: An observer can view requests that requesters sent in, check progress of projects, view statistics, and download translations. In the customers' organization, this is a higher-level person who needs information about the work of a team, but is not involved in the operative work.

Manager: A manager can do everything a Requester and an Observer can do. In addition, they can edit or delete the customer's other contacts, change their roles, and reassign work from one contact to another.

On this page, you can add a new contact for an existing customer - if the contact did not register at the Customer Portal previously.

If the contact has already registered: Instead of adding a new contact, approve the registration, and edit the details of the contact to finalize the privileges and the workflows.

You must add any new contacts to existing customer: Before you add a new contact, make sure that their organization is already in the system as a customer. To add a new customer, open the Customer Portal customers page.
