User administration

More and more users will register on your platform. Newly registered users are automatically added to the "platform main group", however they must be assigned to other groups by the p-admin if required.



If you want to add users to a single group, we recommend proceeding as follows:


|1| Choose "Groups & Users" from the main menu.

|2| Click on the “modify” button next to “Editing groups”.

|3| You will see a list of available groups. Click on the "users" button next to the desired group.

|4| Now, you see all users who are members of this groups. Click on "add/search user" on the left side.

|5| Click on the radio button "all users". Then, click on "Search for Users" to begin the search.

|6| A list of users who are registered on your platform is displayed. Users who are already members of the group are highlighted with a green check. Select one or more users by clicking in the checkboxes and click on "Add to group".


If you want to add users to several groups, we recommend proceeding as follows:

|1| Choose "Groups & Users" from the main menu.

|2| Click on the "modify"-button in the row "All groups and users".

|3| Now, you see a table which shows all groups and users of your platform.

 The following features support you in assigning users to several groups:

  • repetition of the column "username":
    If there are more than eight groups, the column "username" is displayed again.

  • repetition of the column titles:
    If there is a long list of usernames, the row showing the column titles is displayed again.

  • information field:
    If you point at a checkbox, an information field is displayed. The information field shows you which user you would assign to which group with this checkbox.

Click on the respective checkboxes.

|5| Click on "save changes" at the bottom of the page.

|6| Now, you see a confirmation page with your specifications.

|a| The specifications are correct:
Click on "save changes" again in order to submit your changes.
|b| The specifications are incorrect:
Click on "cancel". The table will be reloaded and you have to choose all checkboxes again.

Apart from manually assigning users to groups, you can use the option "automatic group assignment".

P-admins can be notified if a new user registers on the platform. In order to receive notification, an email template needs to be created.
