Admin Console: Users

The Users panel in the CustomShow Admin Console is where CustomShow Administrators can add new users, disable existing user's access to the application, change current user account information, and more.

The Users panel displays a sorted list of users. By default, the list is sorted by email addresses though this can be changed by clicking on any of the column headers in the lists.

Adding a new user to CustomShow can be accomplished by clicking on the New User button at the top of the application.

You will be prompted to enter a First Name, Last Name, Email Address, and Company Name. Selectable options for the Parent Group (User Group) and Console Access for the user are found here as well.

Finally, an Admin can choose whether or not to send an Activation Email to the user by enabling or disabling the Send Activation Email checkbox.

In the list displayed, every user listing has a text style applied to indicate the account's status:

White Text - Active and registered user. This account can access the application at any time, and the user has registered their account by following the steps provided in their activation email.

White Italicized Text - Active and unregistered user. This account can access the application, but the user has not yet registered their account. User must follow the steps provided in their activation email, or be provided with a new activation link.

Grey Text - Disabled and registered user. This account cannot access CustomShow, as it has been disabled by an Administrator. The user had registered their account previous to being disabled.

Grey Italicized Text - Disabled and unregistered user. This account cannot access CustomShow, as it has been disabled by an Administrator. The user had never registered their account prior to being disabled.

Selecting a user in the list will display the user's account details on the right side of the interface. The information found here can be edited at any time by an Administrator by changing the user's Account Details or the Account Group.

 

The Details panel displays the following:

Name - First and Last Name for the user account.

Email - Email Address and login name for the user account.

Company Name - Visible only in the Admin Console, entered by the user on registration.

Enable CustomShow Access - Clickable Checkbox. Enabled by default, allowing user to access the application. Unchecking this option will disable the user's ability to access CustomShow.

Reset Password - Clicking on this button will display a popup for the Email Password Request, where the user's current email will be displayed. Clicking on Send in this window will send the user a Password Reset email. When this button is clicked, the user's current password will be purged.
