New applications for GroupCamp Administrators and Owners
We have some major updates in August for Account Administrators and Owners.
· The ‘Account’ application dedicated to the owner of a GroupCamp account is now a separate button in the top menu bar.
· We have a brand new and improved ‘Users’ app in the Admin section
· The Company application is now redesigned as a Guests app.
· The Members app in a project has therefore been updated to reflect those changes.
All these new updates are a first step before we add new features to allow for import of contacts from Google and Google Apps accounts
New account app
The screenshot below shows the new design for the Account App.
We have improved the interfaces for viewing account events and invoices. Please note that defining users as administrators is now done in the Users App In the Admin section and not in the Account Apps.
New Users Application
We have chosen to separate users of the company which own a GroupCamp account from invited users from other companies, partners, providers and clients. Outside users are now listed or created in the Guests app (see below). The new Users app is now as shown in the screenshot below.
You can now search and select users from your company to add them to one or more projects. If you are the owner of the account, you can also define users as administrators for the account.
New Guests Application
This application replaces the previous Company app. It will make it easier for administrators to handle a large number of invited guests in an account. The interface for the Guests app works very much as the Users app interface.
When you create a new project and you need to invite all users from a client organization, by searching for a company name you can easily invite all users of a client company to selected projects.
Once the company name is entered in the search field you can choose which users from that company to select.
Once your selection is made click on the (+Projects) tab to add selected users to relevant projects. See screenshot below.
The new Guests app is designed to make things simpler for administrators handling a large number of users. We hope you’ll enjoy it.
Adding new guests
Please note that when adding a guest, you must define the name of the company. If the company already exists within the account it will be suggested by the app.
Account administrators and Managers (in plans Best and Max) can also add users or guests from the ‘Members’ app when they are in a project.
In the ‘Manage Members’ interface under the members tab, the user management features are the same as in the Users or Guests app.
We hope the new administrator apps will improve your collaboration with clients.
