User Admin Permissions
This group lets you change:
The User Account Status
- New : means the user has just registered
- Activated by email : means the user has received and activation email and clicked the link to activate his account.
- Autoactivated : that’s the case for imported user or users upgraded from an old version. It’s also the case if you configured the system to not required activation. To be confirmed: may also be the case if the user registers from a Trusted IP / Domain / Country. The newly registered user status doesn’t depend from the IP address! So if the user registers from a Trusted IP / Domain / Country it does not affect the successfully registered user status.
- Email changed : means the user account needs to be reactivated because the email address was changed.
- Deactivated email : means the user account needs to be reactivated because an admin user deactivated this account because of some reason.
- Failed activation : The maximum number of reminder emails (default: 3) have been sent but the user still hasn’t clicked on a link to activate. The links in the old email are still active (unless secure activation is enabled). The user can request a new activation email at any time. So this is not a fatal state. Theoretically the above definition is correct, however here is a couple note:
- The failed status will be set if the user didn’t receive any kind of activation/validation emails in the last 7 days ( this is configurable ), and the account was created at least 7 days ago. So even if for some reason the 3 emails were not sent, the status may be updated to ‘Failed activation’.
- This status may be set automatically ( not by an admin user ) only when ‘Easy account activation process’ is enabled, because reminder emails are not sent otherwise.
- Closed account : the user account is closed. The user can no longer log in. The user account will no longer appear in the front office.
The User Group
There are many permissions associated with User Groups. Changing the group of a user will give him different permissions.
Note that each group has a level which appears in (parentheses) after the group name. Some groups have moderation power over other groups.
The User Level
Each user has a level. This is different from the level of the user group. The user level is mainly used in Advanced Permissions.
