Server administrator - Group management

In the Group management pane of the Server administrator, you manage user groups. To allow a user anything to do on the memoQ server: grant privileges and permissions to a group, and add the user to the group. There are a number of built-in groups that have privileges that no other groups can have. Members of groups can use resources (translation memories, term bases, etc.) and projects on the memoQ server - if the group was granted access.

Requires memoQ project manager: You need the project manager edition of memoQ to manage a memoQ server or a memoQ cloud.

You need to be a project manager or an administrator: You may manage the server only if you are a member of the Project managers or Administrators group on the memoQ server. To change most settings, you must be member of the Administrators group.

How to get here

  1. At the very top of the memoQ window - in the Quick Access toolbarquick-access-default -, click the Server Administrator (cogwheel in a cloud) icon-server-administrator icon. The Server Administrator window opens, with the Connection pane.

    Or: On the Project ribbon, click Server Administrator.

  2. Type or choose the address of the memoQ server, and click the Select button.

What can you do?

The Group management pane shows a list of groups: You can see the name, the type, and the description and the disabled status of each group.

There are three types of groups, each having its icon:

icon-group-local: A regular group on the memoQ server. It is either a built-in group, or a group that the administrator created here in the Server Administrator.

icon-group-subvendor: Subvendor group. This group represents another organization. The membership of the group is managed by the subvendor manager who is also a user on the memoQ server.

icon-group-windows-sso: A Windows group, copied from the Windows domain that memoQ server is connected to. To learn more: See Help about the Windows single sign-on pane.
