Flipper Updates Users and Roles
We have added several items to the Users section of Flipper to make editing roles easier. In addition to the new editing features, a visual view has been created to see your user’s activities.
Under the User’s tab, new bar graphs show statistics for your users. At a glance, you can see when users have joined, if they have updated their profiles and when they last logged in.
Under the Roles tab, the bar chart indicates the total number of users per role.
Assigning multiple users to a role can be accomplished quickly by using the multi-item drag and drop control. Administrators can find this new feature in the Roles section.
Sometimes members don’t always keep their primary e-mail addresses up to date. E-mail addresses help aid in the recovery of lost passwords. To ensure that a member can enable this feature, members can now add a Back-up E-mail address to their user information profile. This feature can be found under the general users information form.
Also, under User Settings, the prefix and suffix boxes are optional. Prefix refers to Dr., Mr. Ms., etc. while the suffix refers to Sr., Jr. etc.
The Role Map was created to display the sections in your web site. Administrators can view the roles and see which sections users have access to. User roles are easier to see and to audit. To view assigned roles, use the Display button found in the role maps. If you want to edit security settings or view a specific page, right click on the section.
The Custom Profile Field under the advanced settings has recently been enhanced. Demographic fields can be created for internal or external use. You can control how much information is displayed and who has access to view and/or edit this information.
Users can be grouped by their interests, roles, attributes, etc. For example, you could group users in a car club by the make of their car or the color or a specific year.
These updates are already installed and ready to use for all sites that are using Version 3 and above.
