User assignment - Multiple Presses in OMP

Postby heidelberg » Fri Feb 14, 2014 3:07 am

Hi,

we will have multiple presses in one OMP installation.
We would need to be able to assign the same User (i.e. PressManagers) to different presses.
Unfortunately, this is not possible.
And when I try to add the same User twice there will be the email error.
Why is it not possible to add a different user with the same email adress? We would need something like this.
Is there a solution to this problem?

Best wishes,
Stefanie

Hi Stefanie,

The users themselves need to exist only once in the database, but you can associate them with various presses.
  • Go to Management > Settings > Users & Roles
  • Check "Include users with no roles in this press."
  • Enter some search criteria that will find your user account, such as a username
  • Hit "Search"
This should allow you to edit the account and add a role to associate it with your journal.
