Logging Into OAS as a Proxy

OAS allows the JCAC Chair and EXEC to assign someone to act as their proxy and take actions on their behalf. All Proxy user actions are recorded in History & Comments in the nominations where the Proxy took action. The tracking will identify the Proxy user's name taking action on behalf of the user who assigned their proxy. The JCAC Chair and EXEC may only assign one user to act as their proxy, however, it is possible for one user to be assigned as proxy for multiple users.



From the home screen, go to the upper right hand corner and click the Arrow next to your name.

Select the Proxy User option to sign in as the Proxy. 

You will now see the Sign in On Behalf (Proxy) pop up window. Click on the arrow to expand the dropdown menu, this will show a list of all users who have assigned you as their Proxy

 Select the name of the proxy you would like to use and then click Start Impersonation.

You will now notice in the upper right hand corner, you should see your name signed in on behalf of the proxy name you selected. All of the roles assigned to the user you are signed in on behalf of will appear on the left menu.
