Administrative users have the ability to create and oversee user accounts. Once a user account is created, it can be assigned specific roles and permissions.

  1. Add new user
        Option 1: In the workspace, click on 'Add new' to find the option for adding a new       user.
        Option 2: Navigate to the main menu and select 'Settings > Users and Roles,' then       click on 'Add user.'
  2. Make sure you provide the mandatory parameters, such as Name and Email,               while creating the user.
  3.  If you want this user to access the CMS, specify the Username and Password                accordingly.
  4.  If you wish the user to receive notifications about published stories, enter their            email ID in the 'Communication email ID' box.
  5.  After entering the required details, click on 'Save' to finalize the user creation              process.

Once a User Account is successfully created, you have the option to share the account credentials with the intended user through offline means.

Generating user profiles using social media accounts.

To access Quintype, you have the option to connect through various social media platforms such as Google Plus, Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. When trying to sign in for the first time, you may encounter a failure message.

If this happens, reach out to the Administrator directly offline and inform them of the social media ID you used during your login attempt. The Administrator can then retrieve the user's credentials from the log of failed login attempts and enable your account accordingly.
