The Users control interface is a tabbed interface. The Library Users Tab shows all User accounts that have the specified Library as their Home Library. The Users with Access to Your Library tab shows user accounts that have been given access to the current library.

To reach the Users menu, Organization Administrators and System Administrators click Administration in the navigation pane, click Organization, then select Users.

Start by entering a Username and Password for the new user, then designate their home Library.

There are four types of User accounts available.

  1. Contributor: can upload and delete video entries from the Media Library, and manage Playlists.
  2. Editor: only allowed to edit existing titles and publish to Playlists.
  3. Viewer: can view published files in the Media Library, and can view videos in the Shared Library.
  4. Organization Administrator: permitted to perform Content Administrator functions; to use tools in the Administration Tab to create Libraries and Users; and to manage Media Workflows for Libraries within that Organization.

Enter a First Name, Last Name, and E-mail Address for the user, then select the Landing Page (Media Library or Portal).

Once you have entered the User information, click Save to complete the process.

To edit an existing User, click Edit, make your changes, and then click Update. To delete a User, click the Delete button next to the name of the User you wish to delete.

You can also manage your Users’ access to other Libraries through the Access control icon.
