As an administrator or superuser you can edit users, assign rubric access rights to them or change their roles as well as the settings of their user accounts. Use the view “Edit users” for these purposes.
The table displayed contains the following columns:
This column lists the user names.
Three buttons are available in this column:
The name of the user is displayed here.
The role of the user is displayed here.
The user group the user belongs to is displayed here.
Open the list view “Edit users” (see Section 3, “Edit Users (List View)”) and click on the button “Edit user settings” in the column “Manage” and the row of the user whose settings you want to edit to open the view “Edit user”
In this view, users with the roles of "Administrator" and "Superuser" can edit a user's settings.
Please enter the user name here. The user will need this name in combination with a password to log into ConPresso.
Please enter the real name of the user here. This name is needed to sign articles, for example, and it is required for personalized elements in ConPresso, such as an individualized login message or a personalized salutation in emails sent by the system. Entries in the fields “Name”and “User name” can be identical of course.
Apply the setting “Group” to divide users into groups. With this function ConPresso facilitates the personalization of websites. Editorial work remains untouched by this setting.
Users with the roles of "Adminstrator" and "Superuser" can change the roles of other users here.
ConPresso distinguishes five different roles: member, editor, chief editor, superuser and administrator. By defining a user's role you also define his or her privileges. These privileges are specific to each role and determine which functions and views are available for each user.
ConPresso's user interface has a multilingual setup. By default ConPresso is delivered in a German and an English version. Please check the ConPresso-Website for other language versions.
The language selected here determines the language of the ConPresso backend. Thus you can choose a different language for each user. Please note that the language of pages outside the backend, like the login page, for instance, is defined by the basic system language chosen by the administrator as described in Section 1, “”. It is the same language for all users.
Please enter the user's initials here. The system can use them to sign an article as an alternative to the author's name.
Please enter the email address of the user here. ConPresso will use this email address to send system messages to. In addition to that, it is possible to include this address into an article, as a contact information, for example.
Please enter the user's password here. To avoid problems caused by typing errors, please re-enter the password into the field “Password confirmation”.
Complete your actions by pressing the button “”.
To edit a user's (e.g. an editor's) access rights to a specific rubric, please open the list view “Edit users” and click on the button “Edit user rights” in the column “Manage” and the row of the user. To open the list view “Edit users” please click on the entry “ ” in the menu “ ”.
A red access right symbol indicates that the access right has been assigned and can be withdrawn. A red access right symbol indicates that it has not been assigned yet and you can do so.

In this column you can assign or withdraw all access rights in one go.
Alternatively you can set access rights by proceeding as described in Section 2.5, “Edit Rubric Rights”.
Please note that you cannot assign rubric access rights to users with the role of "Member" as these users cannot log in to the ConPresso backend.
Users cannot be deleted in ConPresso because in that case articles could not be attributed to anyone properly. This is why you can only block users from accessing the system by deactivating them. Once a user has been deactivated he or she can neither log in to the ConPresso backend nor access personalized or restricted sections of the frontend.
Deactivating a user has the advantage that it can be undone anytime. For that purpose please use the function described in Section 4, “Reactivate Users”.
