Here at RebelMouse, we understand that every editorial team is structured differently. Whether you operate your web property with one editor, or have a network of 1,000+ contributors, it's easy to manage your team through our platform.
You can find the Users Dashboard on your site's hamburger menu links list:
To easily add or remove users to or from the platform, click
Users in the lefthand menu or go straight to: /core/r_dashboard/users
Here, you can get a clear view of who has access to your dashboards and exactly what level of permissions. You can also check their bio and picture if you click on the edit pencil icon.
You'll be able to easily see the user's:
- Title (or actual name and last name)
- Status (if active or banned)
- Last login
Adding New Users
It's very simple. All you have to do is click on the blue plus button on the bottom right and an empty user lightbox will appear. You can just fill it out.
Editing a User's Role
You can edit any user and update their roles at any given time, just choose the right permission level from the dropdown.
Changing a User's Password
You can reset their password as needed, all you have to do is click the 'Change Password' button.
Logging In As a Specific User
By going to the bottom of the user details card, you'll see a link that lets you log in as them. This is so you can see what they see and experience what they experience when using their account. This is especially helpful when troubleshooting technical issues.
User Permission Levels
An Administrator has full control of access and permissions across an entire web property. These controls include:
- Creating, publishing, and deleting content
- Posting content to linked social accounts
- Accessing the Layout & Design tool
- Viewing the Stats dashboard
- Accessing the property's Account section
An Editor has the same access and permissions that an Administrator does, with the following exceptions:
- They don't have the ability to publish content to a property's linked social accounts (e.g., Facebook, Twitter).
- They can't access the Layout & Design tool.
A Guest Editor can edit a draft, but not publish content. They cannot access administrative tools either, such as Sections, Layout & Design, Content Sources, or Account.
A Guest Writer can create a draft, but not publish content. They cannot access administrative tools either, such as Sections, Layout & Design, Content Sources, or Account.
A Developer only has access to the Layout & Design tool. That way they can implement ads and edit a layout or change a design without creating or publishing any content to a site.
A Read Only user can only access the Stats dashboard. They cannot draft or publish content to a web property, access the Layout & Design tool, publish content to social, or access any administrative tools.
An Administrator can add anyone they want to a site as a Community Member. A Community Member can then create their own personal profile/account page on the site. Depending on your site's settings, they can just be passive members OR they can have the ability to submit content for editorial review and publishing.
