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
- At the very top of the memoQ window - in the Quick Access toolbar -, click the Server Administrator (cogwheel in a cloud) icon. The Server Administrator window opens, with the Connection pane.
- Under Category, click User management. The User management pane appears.
- Under the list of users, click Add. The User properties window opens.
Or: Select one or more existing users. Under the list of users, click Edit.
Type or choose the address of the memoQ server, and click the Select button.
You may need to log in to the memoQ server: If you have not used the server before, the Log in to server window opens. Type your user name and password for that server, and click OK.
What can you do?
Fill in or change the following boxes:
- User name: Enter the user name that the user will use to log in to the server. You cannot change the user name of an existing user account.
- Password: Enter or change the password that the user will use to log in to the server. If the password does not meet criteria defined by the system administrator, error messages tell you what is missing:
- Password again: Enter the password again, so that you do not lose the password because of a typo. This box must be the same as the Password box.
- Full name: Enter the real-life name of the user, for information purposes.
memoQ validates the details you enter. If something is wrong - for example, the e-mail address is not well-formed, or the Password and Password again boxes do not match -, a warning sign will appear next to the box that has the problem.
Fill in or change the following boxes:
- Address: You may enter physical mailing address of the user. This is optional.
- E-mail: Enter the e-mail address of the user. It is optional, but it is highly recommended that you fill it in. memoQ server will use this e-mail address to send notifications to the user.
- Phone number: Enter the landline number of the user. This is optional.
- Mobile number: Enter the mobile number of the user. This is optional.
In the Package workflow drop-down box, decide if the user can work from project packages - or they must work online at all times. Choose from online (no packages), both, or packages only. If you set it to Both, the user has a choice: they can either download the project in a package, or check out the project for online processing. If you choose online (no packages), the user will not be able to download packages: they will need to work online at all times. If you choose packages only, the user will be able to download packages from the server, but they will not be able to work online.
To do that, check the Login disabled check box.
Subvendor managers cannot add users to groups: If you are a subvendor manager - and not an administrator or a project manager -, and you are adding or editing a subvendor user account, you cannot add the user to any other groups. To learn more, see Help about the subvendor mode of Server Administrator.
For that, use the Group membership tab at the bottom.
This tab contains a list of the groups that the user belongs to.
- To add the user to a group: At the bottom, click Add. The Select groups opens. Select one or more groups, and click OK. With the group membership, the user will get all the privileges and permissions that the group is granted.
- To remove the user from a group: Select the group that you want to remove. At the bottom, click Remove. memoQ will remove the user from the selected group. The user will lose all privileges and permissions that they received as member of this group.
In this tab, you can list the language pairs that the user works with.
memoQweb is the browser-based interface of a memoQ server or a memoQ cloud.
In memoQweb. you can allow users to change some of their own details. Do this under memoQWeb (legacy) in the User properties window. Normally, memoQ server does not allow the users to change their own details. To allow this, check the User can edit information and the User can edit language properties check boxes. You must be member of the Administrators group to allow this. Then the user can log in to memoQWeb (legacy), and open the Profile page. They can edit their own full name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, mobile number, password and language pairs.
