When you first start up the Admin Console you will land in the Dashboard which provides an overview of recent Event Activity, a Security Audit, and User Status.
The Dashboard provides several components:

User Status Summary
From the Admin screen, you can access Nodes, Users, Roles, Teams, Two Factor Authentication, 2FA settings, and User Provisioning.
Nodes provide a method to organize your users, roles, teams and administrators into distinct groupings, similar to organizational units in Active Directory. The administrator can create nodes based on location, department, division or any other structure that makes sense for your organization. Nodes can have completely independent sets of users, role enforcement policies, administrators, and provisioning methods.
By default, the top-level node, or Root Node is set to the organization name, and all Nodes can be created underneath. Depending on your organization you may or may not need to set up nodes.
Small teams may not need multiple nodes and will be able to administer users, roles, and teams from the default root node only.
Larger Organizations may benefit in organizing by locations or departments across multiple nodes.
Keeper is easy to deploy to your users in the organization, and our flexible tools provide many options in your rollout plans. To get started, we recommend that you consider the organizational structure of your Keeper account. The building blocks of Keeper's security model are Nodes, Users, Roles and Teams which are covered in detail throughout this guide. All users who join the organization's Keeper subscription will be responsible for managing their own encrypted vault. Whether users are manually created or provisioned automatically, their vault is protected by a Master Password which is used to encrypt and decrypt the user's Data Key which is then used to encrypt their data. We recommend separating your personal, private records from your business records by creating two separate user accounts. When enforcements are applied to the enterprise (such as Account Transfer privileges), users who have personal records mixed with business information risk having their personal information transferred.
Roles provide the organization the ability to define enforcements based on a user's job responsibility as well as provide delegated administrative functions.
Permissions for Administrators are also configurable here which toggle whether an Admin can manage nodes, users, teams, roles, SSO, AD Bridge, User Account Transfer, and Run Reports.
Important: Account Transfer is an optional feature that should be configured by the Keeper Administrator during the initial deployment phase of the Keeper rollout. The reason for this is because Account Transfer relies on the sharing of encryption keys between users that have rights to perform the transfer. For more information, refer to Account Transfer.
The purpose of creating Teams is to have logical groupings of individuals for the ability to share folders within the Keeper Vault. The administrator simply creates the team, sets any Team Restrictions (edit/viewing/sharing of passwords), and adds the individual users to the team.
When preparing for a rollout, you can consider one of the following options when adding users:
Access to additional Secure Add-On functionality is also provided from the Admin Console side bar, this includes:
Advanced Reporting & Alerts
