Users audit overview with GAT Flow

GAT Flow allows admins to directly manage users. This direct access to the user account enables the Admin to view the current state of the User account and allows them to perform actions such as Setting the user Signature, Changing the users account details, Adding and Removing, Groups, Aliases, Phones, Addresses, and more

The Users module allows the admin to update the user data in real time as well as create or delete the user’s data.
