User management

Alica Kačengová

Collaboration is one of the Lumeer’s most important features. You can add other users to your organizations and projects and decide what they are allowed to see, change or add.

Managing users in an organization

To enter the user management screen, click on the organization code and select Configure.

On the Users tab, you can see the list of the existing users and a field for inviting new users.

When you add a user to the organization, it is automatically added to all its projects. The automatically assigned user role in the project depends on the role in the organization – for more info, scroll below to the User roles section.

To remove the user from the organization (and all its projects), click on the red bin icon.

Managing users in a project

Managing users on a project level is very similar to organization level: Click on the project code and select Configure.

The list of existing users appears. There is no option to invite new users – that can be done only on organization level.

All users from the organization are listed in the project, but if they are not assigned any role, they don’t have access to the project.

Managing users in a table

To enter table settings, click on the gear icon next to the table icon:

And switch to the Users tab:

User roles

There are 3 basic permissions in Lumeer, and the user roles are based on them:

  • Read – Reader
  • Write – Author
  • Manage – Creator

You can choose the role for every user by clicking on the permissions icons.

See the table below for detailed information on user roles:
