Adding users to Inception
The person who signs up for an Inception account is initially the only user and administrator of Inception.
It is very likely though that Inception is used by more than one user.
This article explains how to add additional users to Inception.
Note: We recommend to first fully set up Inception before adding users. This make sure that when they log in they have access to the right content and tools. See Setting up Inception for an efficient workflow.
Who can add users?
Only users with admin rights have access to the tool with which users can be managed: the Management console. You can check this by logging in to Inception, clicking your Avatar and checking if the option 'Management console' is present.
Note: For the purpose of this article it is assumed here that you have access to the Management console.
Adding a user
Step 1. Access the Management Console by clicking your Avatar and choosing Management console.
Figure: The Users page in the Management console.
Step 2. In the bottom right corner, click Invite people.
The Invite people window appears.
Step 3. Enter the e-mail address of the person you wan to invite.
Tip: To add multiple e-mail addresses, click the '+' icon to add a new field.
Step 4. Click Send invites.
An invite is sent to each user by e-mail. It contains a link that the user has to click in order to accept the invitation.
By default, each new user is automatically assigned to the Brand named 'Default'. This means that they have access to all content that is part of that Brand.
Typically though, users need to work on particular publications only. It is therefore recommended to set up Brands for each publication to separate the content of each publication.
Step 5. (Optional but recommended) Assign the user to only those Brands that the user should have access to.
