Add Users


Introduction

Users are the central part of planning Resources since Users are the people that login to the tool and do the actual planning. Why do we have to explain such a simple thing in an excessively complicated way? Since Ganttic is mostly used for scheduling people, it's easy to come to the conclusion that Users you add are the Resources you are going to plan. That isn't  the case. Users can be Resources but don't have to be. You have to add Resources and Users separately. Here you'll learn how to add Users.

Must-know about this feature

Users are not Resources. The same person can be a User and a Resource but you must add the User and the Resource separately. An Administrator has access to all functions and can manage the subscription. No need to specify Views, Reports, Projects and Resources permissions as the Admin can see and do everything by default. User permissions can be limited. Regardless of the permissions granted, regular Users can't access Your Account page to manage the subscription and billing details. 

Add a User to Ganttic

  1. Click on "USERS" icon on the sidebar on the bottom left 
  2. You will see the list of already added Users.


  3. Click on "ADD NEW"
  4. This will open "User Data" section.


  5. Select a profile icon (optional)
  6. 80x80 pixels is the perfect icon/image size.


  7. Add first/last name, email
  8. That's the email they will have to use for logging in. The email can't be connected to any other accounts in Ganttic, it has to be a unique one. 

  9. Set a password
  10. The password you set is temporary, the User will be asked to set a new one via link provided in the email invitation. Setting a password is not mandatory.
  11. Select a time zone
  12. All Users can have different time zones. The planned Tasks will be displayed accordingly. 
    1. Select User type on the right
      1. Administrators have access to all features including Your Account section. User's access can be specified on different levels.

      2. Assign the User to a User Group (group permissions will be applied)
      3. Select a group from the dropdown list. Here's how to create User Groups.

         
      4. Click on "Save"
      5. It won't send out the invitation, just saves the general User data. Click on the tabs on the left to specify User's login security, permissions for Custom Views, Reports, Projects and Resources or assign the User to a User group (group permissions will be applied).  

        If you are done with specifying various permission then go back to the "USER DATA" tab and click on "+ SEND INVITATION". It will send the invitation to the specified email address for confirmation.
