Company Administrator FAQ
How do I get access as a company administrator for my company or firm?
Company administrators must complete and return the authorization form before access to the administrator dashboard is granted.
I returned the authorization form, how do I access the online firm information?
Once we have received and approved your authorization form, we will send a confirmation email to the new administrator with instructions on how to log in to the OSB website. If you submitted the authorization form but have not received login instructions within two business days, contact the OSB at email@example.com or 503-431-6362.
If you are already authorized as a company administrator you can access the dashboard by logging in here.
How long does authorization for the company administrator last?
Once authorization is granted for a new company administrator, that person will have access to the company's information until the OSB is instructed by the company or firm to remove access for the administrator. If the administrator's email address on record with OSB changes, access will be terminated automatically.
How do I remove authorization for a company administrator?
If the authorized company administrator leaves the company, please contact the OSB at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-431-6362 to remove their affiliation with the company.
Note that by removing the member from the company directory you are only removing their affiliation to your company, not changing their contact information. If you have forwarding contact information for the person, please email it to email@example.com.
How do I update the company address after our office moved?
Company administrators can update the address information for all associated members and non-members by selecting the 'Company Information' tab on the administrator dashboard.
How do I add members to the company directory?
If a member is not included in your company directory, you must submit an address change request in writing. There are two ways to accomplish this: 1) the individual member can log in to their dashboard and update their information to associate themselves to the company, or 2) you or the individual member can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the bar number, name, email address, and phone number for each OSB member that should be added to the company directory. A confirmation email will be sent to each individual member once their address change has been processed. The company administrator will not receive an email confirmation, but should see additions on the company directory tab of your dashboard within one business day.
How do I remove members from the company directory?
The Company Directory tab of the administrator dashboard includes a list of all OSB members and any non-members currently associated with your company. Use the 'remove' box on the right side of the page to remove anyone who is no longer employed by your company.
Note that by removing the member from the company directory you are only removing their affiliation to your company, not changing their contact information. If you have forwarding contact information for the person please, email it to email@example.com.
