To give a user access to a door it requires 5 steps:
Ensure you are an Access Admin (Allows you to see the Verkada Access portion of Command, and make changes to Verkada Access)
Make sure you are a Site Access Admin for the site containing the door (Allows you to see the access controllers and doors at a site, as well as configure these doors)
Assign the door to an Access Level
Associate the Access Level to the Access Group
Assign the user to an Access Group
The steps are detailed below.
Ensure you are an Access Admin
If you add an access controller to your org you are automatically made an Access Admin. Otherwise, another an organization admin (or your account if you are an organization admin) needs to go to Admin > Org Settings > Users to elevate your permissions.
From the Users page, select the account to be modified to an access role, and then edit the role dropdown to the appropriate role.
Ensure you are a Site Access Admin
This will allow you to see the access controller and door on your Home and Devices pages. If you are an Org Admin, you can give yourself Site Access Admin for any site. If you are not an Org Admin, then a current Site Access Admin for the site with the door in question will need to make you a Site Access Admin.
To do so, you/they will go to Admin > Access Control > Access Sites
Select the Admins text in the row for the site you wish to grant Site Access Admin
Next, click the Add text in the top right
When the dialog box appears, find the user in the list, check their name and select Done to make them a Site Access Admin
