Movius for BlackBerry Installation for MultiLine Admins

Read this guide to learn how to set up your MultiLine organizations in the Management Portal. 


This article is intended for administrators that are overseeing or participating in the initial setup of Management Portal. 

Part 1: Set up Organization

Step 1 - Manage organizations

Read on to learn how to create, edit, or delete organizations. 


Organizations contain your user and admin accounts.

You can set up the MMP to reflect your organizational structure where you can create an organization (root node) with the name of your Enterprise. Each node or branch of the tree represents a department. Each department can have its own administrator with well-defined roles and privileges. 

Consider the example below:

Graphic depicting organization hierarchy. "ABC Banking Corporation" has two suborganizations "Retail Bank" and "Operations" and each of those have two suborganizations under them. "Retail Bank" has "Europe" and "North America" and "Operations" has "Finance" and "Human Resources".

You can create one or multiple organizational levels or just create one organizational level below the root node. This structure is flexible enough to manage your employee base.

You can have as many organizations and sub-organizations in the portal as needed. 

Before you start

Users receive MultiLine invitations when you add them to an organization. These invitations contain the information users need to download and activate MultiLine and credentials for activating mobile and desktop apps.  Some organizations may want to change the default invitation we provide to add their own content or formatting.

Part 2: Invite Admins

Step 1 - Create admin roles

Roles are a collection of Privileges granted to Admins. Create your Roles before adding admins because selecting the Role will be a part of the Admin creation process.


Creating Admin Roles allows your organization to have different types of Admins. For example, you can have an Admin who is only able to invite users, and an administrator who is only able to downloading reports. 

Before you Start

  • You need "Roles and Privileges" Privilege in your Role to perform these instructions. 

How to create a Role

You can create a role in Administrators > Roles and Privileges. 

  1. Navigate to the top-most organization that you want to receive the changes. See Navigating Organizations.
  2. Click Administrators.
    Administrators icon
  3. Click Roles and Privileges.
    Roles and Privileges tab
  4. Click + Create Role to create a new role.
    Screen with create role button in upper right

Different privileges can be assigned by checking various features under each section. 

  1. Enter the name of the role into the Role Name field. Note: When you add admins to the portal, you will assign the role based on the Role Name. 
    Role Name field *Required
  2. Select the checkbox to assign the privileges.

You've invited the admins!

An email will be sent to the new admins which will contain their login credentials and a system-generated password. On the first login, the administrator will be prompted to set their own password. 

If you want to check whether administrators have onboarded, you can monitor administrator status in Administrator Reports (see Managing reports on MultiLine Admins). 

Part 3: Invite users

Step 1 - Create user permissions

Read this to learn how to create custom user permissions that you can apply to Organizations in the Setup tab. 


User permissions define what app features are available to users of the MultiLine app. User permissions are set at the organization level and are inherited by any sub-organizations. If your sub-organization has an inherited user permission, you must edit the user permission at the level it was defined. 

Before you Start

  • An admin must have "Setup" Privilege in their Role in the organization to do these instructions.  See What Admin Privileges are in Management Portal?.
  • Default User Permissions will set permissions for users that are not part of a subgroup.

Create new custom permissions

  1. Go to the organization where you want to perform the action. 
  2. Go to the Setup tab and click User Permissions
  3. Click Add New.Screen Set Up User Permissions

Step 2 - Add users

Learn how to add a single user and send an invitation that they use to activate their MultiLine service.


A MultiLine administrator is responsible for adding users to the Management Portal and sending the users MultiLine invitations. MultiLine invitations give them the required information they need to activate MultiLine. 

You can add users directly in the portal, or you can upload multiple users at once using a CSV file. You can also add users and invite them to MultiLine immediately or save the information to invite them at a later time. If you add users without inviting them, you'll need to use the Resend Invite feature to send them invitations in the future. 

Before you Start

Send a Single User Invitation

You can add and invite users to MultiLine from the Accounts screen in the Management Portal. 

  1. Go to the Accounts tab, and then click Add Account.

  4. Choose a number or tag from the drop-down menu. (Example above: "PORTED")
  5. Select the User Permissions to which to assign this number. (Example above: "default cos for org 2000")
  6. You can add the user and invite them to use MultiLine immediately, or add the user and send the invitation to use MultiLine at a later time. 
    • Select Save to add the user without sending the user an invitation to use the application. Note: You will use the "Resend Invitation" process when ready to invite the user to MultiLine. 
    • Select Save & Invite to add the user and send the user the invitation to begin using MultiLine.
