What are User Groups?
Every user in Javek belongs to a user group. The user group determines what a user can do. For instance, if you belong to the Administrator group you can do things like create new user accounts, new events and new event types. If you belong to the Guest user group you can view events that you belong to, but you can't create new events and the entire Administration tab in the top navigation bar won't even be visible to you. You can create any number of custom groups with customized permissions. Every Javek subscription also comes with four standard groups that can't be edited: Owner, Administrator, Default User and Guest. Guest users are free, while every other type of user is charged for according to the rate outlined here.
The Standard User Groups
Creating Custom User Groups
Custom user groups are used to give a group of users customized access rights. You could use them to give a group of clients the ability to create one event type but block them from creating another, or to give an administrative assistant the ability to manage your subscription's resources but block the ability to create user accounts.
[Click to enlarge]The User Group Admin Page: To edit or create a custom user group click on the Administration tab in the top navigation bar and click User Groups in the side menu on the right. You will see a list of the user groups in your subscription as shown in the screenshot to the right. To edit a custom group click the group name in the list; to create a new group click the "Add a User Group" button at the bottom of the page.
The User Group Popup Form: When you click the "Add a User Group" button or a custom group in the group list you will get a popup form for editing/creating user groups. The left column of the popup has a field for the name of the group, and also shows a list of event types that allows you to select which types of events this group can create, if any.
The right column has a list of Yes or No questions that allow you to set various permissions for users in this group:
You can make changes to group permissions at any time. Click "Save" when you are done or click the "Close [X]" link in the top right of the popup to cancel.
