How to add a new User
Photo: Add a photo for the new user you're adding to Databox. This is an optional step when adding a new user.
Databoards: Select whether the new user will have access to select Databoards or to all Databoards in the Account. If you choose the Select Databoards option, the new user will not automatically have access to new Databoards created in the Account. If you choose the Access to all option, the new user will automatically have access to any new Databoards created in the Account.
After clicking the green Invite User button, the new user will receive an email invitation with their password and a verification link. After verifying their information, they will be able to log in to the Databox Account.
How User Roles are defined
There are 3 User Types that you can select when adding a new contact in Databox, each with specific access and permission levels.
- Administrator: Administrators have full access to the Databox Account. They have the ability to add and manage users, as well the ability to access and edit all Data Source connections and Databoards in the Account.
- Editor: Editors can edit and delete all Databoards that they have access to. Databoard access can be limited for Editors by Admins in the Account. Editors can add new users, but they cannot manage users in the Account or delete Data Source connections.
- User: Users can view Databoards that they have access to, but they can only edit and share Databoards that they created. Similarly, they can only view Annotations on Databoards they have access to, and they can only edit Annotations on Databoards that they created. Users can't manage users in the Account or edit Data Sources that they did not connect.
Only Administrators can invite and approve new users to the Databox Account. Editors are able to invite new users to the account as well, but invited users will need to be approved by an admin before receiving an email invitation that includes their access credentials.
