A user is any person who you wish to have access to your Appointedd account with their own login details. These will probably be each of your staff members who has their own bookable calendar through Appointedd. Don't worry if your staffing situation changes - you can simply delete the user to revoke their access to your account.
You invite a person to become a user of your account via an email invite from which they create their own password. You can also set the level of access which each user should have to your account by editing user permissions.
Types of user permissions
There are three levels of user permissions which you can grant to a user of your Appointedd account:
- An administrator has full access to Appointedd, all features and can also manage user permissions. This is usually the owner of the organisation.
- A standard user has access to Appointedd and all features but cannot manage user permissions. This is usually the manager of the organisation.
- A restricted user has access to those calendars which are assigned to them by an Administrator. They can make and modify bookings in those calendars and view the answers given to booking questions by that customer. A restricted user can search for a customer to add them to a booking, therefore giving them access to the name, phone number and email address of relevant customers. They can also sync their own calendar.
Top tip: if you want to give someone access to a resource's bookings but don't want them to log in to your Appointedd account, you can connect the resource's Appointedd calendar to an external calendar e.g. Google or Outlook. Check out this support guide for more details.
How to add a user to your account
You must be an administrator of the account to add a user.
- Go to the user icon and click user permissions
- Click add user
- Enter the name of the user
- Enter the email address of the user
- Select the level of permissions that this user should have
- If this user will be a restricted user, you should select the resources' calendars which they should have access to
- Click send invite.
An invite is sent to the email address provided and the invited user will follow the link to accept the invite. If the user already has a user account (this could be on a different Appointedd account), they will be prompted to log in to that account. If they don't yet have a user account, they will create their password.
This user now has their own login to your Appointedd account.
