Who can get access to L2S?

The main rule is that a company need to have ownership in a license on the NCS to access L2S. Access can be requested via the L2S Servicedesk or via the operator if the requesting company does not operate the license.

For international licenses, the main rule is that the operator on the international joint venture is also an operator on the NCS.

Who do I contact if I experience any issues or have problems logging into the new service?

As before, end users should contact their superuser. Superuser can escalate a case to the L2S Servicedesk if needed.

Will messages in the Inbox be deleted after a period or automatically moved to the Archive folder?

Inbox messages will be moved to Archive folder after 3 months.
