RideAmigos supports an unlimited number of top-level system administrators, and existing administrators can easily add or remove admin privileges for other users.
System Administrators: Manage > Admin Dashboard > Users > Search for desired user > Edit button
While editing a user’s information, select the “Is Admin User” option.
Upon saving this will immediately grant administrative abilities.
Things to Consider
- Make sure any users you elevate to administrator status are wholly trustworthy.
- Site administrators all have equal, all-powerful abilities. With great power comes great responsibility.
- Once someone is an administrator they can then make other users administrators, too.
- Administrators are able to view all information related to users, saved trips, triplogs, etc.
- Your organization may want to create formal policies specific to persons who are site administrators.
- Don’t default to making people administrators if Network Manger privileges will do.
In general, we recommend using Network Managers whenever possible in order to provide the highest level of protection to your system and user data, and reserving administrator accounts to those who truly need system-wide access.
