We are pleased to announce that we have implemented a functionality related to user management (multiuser). From now on you can invite users to share access to your account in the system. You can find this option in the Users system menu:
Adding a new user is done by sending him an invitation to his e-mail address. The invitee must click on the acceptance link, which is valid for 7 days. The acceptance process – depending on the situation – is as follows:
- a person who doesn’t have an account in the system will be asked to create one – in this case, it will only be necessary to create an access password (the login is hs e-mail address)
- a person who already has an account in Konfeo doesn’t need to perform any additional actions – after logging in, they will be able to select the context (account) they intend to use
To sum up, the user can have his organizer account in the system and, at the same time, have access to the accounts of other organizers.
The implementation of the described functionality is for us a milestone on the way to introducing user permission management. In its current form, the user of the account who created it is marked as the Owner, and the person invited to share access is marked as the Admin. Both the Owner and Admin have the same permissions, except for one – Admin cannot remove the Owner’s access to the account.
We mentioned it in the messages sent to our organizers that introducing the multiuser option in a working system could be compared to replacing the foundations in an inhabited building. The operation must be carried out in such a way that the building does not suffer, and preferably no tenant becomes aware that any work is underway. Therefore, it requires exceptional precision, long preparations and comprehensive tests of the entire system.
For this reason, we decided to break down the multiuser implementation process into smaller stages, rather than applying one big change. This way we have more control over the process of creating functionalities and implementing changes on the production server.
The next step in the development of this functionality will be the introduction of different levels of permissions for individual types of users. In the longer term, we will be introducing the option to manage default settings at the organization level. We will keep you updated on the progress of work in system messages.
