In this article we will take a deep look into NemoVote’s User Management. You will learn how to add voters, how to automatically sent login mails and much much more
Access levels in NemoVote
There are two different access levels in NemoVote: administrator and voter.
Administrator: A administrator has full control over the NemoVote instance. An administrator has all rights, can add, remove voters and administrators, can open votes, delete data etc. An administrator does not and cannot have voting rights.
Voter: A voter does not have administrative rights in NemoVote. A voter can have voting rights and participate in a vote if the voter is added to a voting lists and vote. A voter can participate in the chat. A voter can have access to the results of a vote if the results are set public.
The User management is your core management for all issues concerning users. You can add, delete, edit, sent credentials to one or more voters in this page. We will look at the different available actions in the next chapters together.
Add a single user
A user has several characteristics in NemoVote.
- Username: This is the main used identifier within NemoVote. Voting privileges are tied to the username. The username has to be unique.
- Email (optional): mainly for password reset, we recommend to add email addresses for users so that they can self-reset their passwords.
- Firstname (optional)
- Lastname (optional)
- Access level (Admin or Voter)
You can add a single user by clicking add user in the User Management and filling out the points above.
Add multiple voters
We go into much more detail into this topic in the article in lets get started -> user onboarding.
You can edit a user through the menu edit user. The username cannot be edited after a user is created. To change the username you have to delete the user and create another one with the correct name. All editable fields in this menu are also editable by the user under “My profile” (except the access level of course).
Sent credential mail to all users
With this function you can sent passwords to all voters. The passwords will be resetted and NemoVote will sent secure passwords to each user via email.
