Allow the assigning of roles during the addition of users to site

Since there are not plans in place to create a way to add more than one user at a time, another feature that would make user administration simpler would be the ability to assign a user a role when adding them to the site.
Currently, one has to add users one at a time THEN edit their roles one at a time, since all new users are automatically assigned to the "Basic User" role, waiting for loading screens and refreshes all the way. If there was a dropdown or checkbox menu in the "Add a User to Your Website" step it would shorten this process significantly - especially when one has to add multiple users.

  • I agree with Nathan. Again, the issue is really with the overall priority of the feature. Yes indeed it would save administrators that create multiple sites a great deal of time, but that is not the majority of the users/clients that use OS.

    I, as an administrator that creates multiple sites, agree that this should be a feature that is added, but, I, as a member of the HWP team, acknowledge that we need to figure out impact and effort.

    We will keep you updated through this forum.

    thank you

  • I agree that this would be particularly great for those of us administering multiple sites, but I might also argue that it would be a helpful for anyone with a site that incorporates more than one user. Some of my users with higher turnover rates, for example, are adding and removing users relatively frequently, and a feature like this would remove some steps and make the process less confusing.
    Of course priority is tied to impact, just wanted to throw out some suggestions to complicate matters. :-)
