Introduction to Account Administration

From within WebEvent, you can create, modify, and delete WebEvent accounts, set read and/or write access to specific calendars, and grant calendar and site administrative access. To access these features, you need to log in and go to either the calendar configuration screen or the site configuration screen.

The ‘admin’ and ‘guest’ accounts are special accounts. The ‘admin’ account is the default site administrator account and controls all functions and settings within WebEvent. The site administrator should configure the ‘guest’ account to allow appropriate access for all users without WebEvent accounts (i.e., the general public). The ‘admin’ and ‘guest’ accounts cannot be renamed or deleted.

Adding a New Account

Select “Add New User” from the “User Access” pull-down menu on either the calendar configuration or site configuration screen, and click the “Modify Access” button.

The account administration screen contains the following fields:

Modify Existing Account: Select an account from the pull-down menu and click the “edit access” button to modify that account. See Modifying or Deleting an Account for more information.

In installations where the number of calendars and/or users is greater than the threshhold number (the default threshhold number is 50), the scalable interface will automatically launch to simplify interaction. See The Scalable Interface for more information.

Account Name: Enter a lowercase alpha-numeric name (no spaces, punctuation, or other special characters) for the new account.

Account Password: Enter a password for the new account.

Name (first and last): Enter the user’s name.

Timezone: Select the user’s timezone.

E-mail Address: Enter the user’s e-mail address.

Calendar Access Levels: Use the radio buttons to designate the level of access the new user should have to each calendar.

Site Administrator: Designate whether this account should have site administrator privileges. Choose wisely! (Site administrators have complete access to all events, accounts, and calendars.)

Click the “Add Account” button to create the new user or click the “Cancel” button to cancel any changes you have made to this screen.

Modifying or Deleting an Account
You can modify or delete existing accounts by selecting the account from the “User Access” pull-down menu on either the calendar configuration or site configuration screen and clicking the “Modify Access” button.
