User Access

 

Public Access

Allow Public Users

Permit public or semi-public users (e.g., students or  association members) to create their own user IDs from their email address. These user ID's are limited to making reserve status bookings that are optionally subject to administrator confirmation. Conditional:  Organization must have an Enterprise Option Subscription and Use Email for Notifications must be turned on in Server Settings.

 

System administrators can apply filters to restrict the who can create a public user ID. These filters are simple ASCII files (txt) that list the user email addresses or domains. The filters are applied in the order below and if a user email meets a filter condition, it is approved or prohibited regardless of later filters.

 

Banned Individuals: List of individual email addresses prohibited from creating a public user ID.

 

Approved Individuals:  List of email addresses approved for creating a public user ID, such as an association mail list.

 

Approved Domains:  List of email domains that are approved for creating public user ID's, for example, an .edu domain for students.
