Administrative tasks available to users in the role of Curator

Spotlight exhibits can be built by a team of exhibit creators. The Users page enables you to add additional users that can manage and/or help curate the exhibit. There are two types of users: exhibit administrators and exhibit curators. An Administrator user has privileges to perform all configuration and curation tasks in the exhibit. A Curator user can perform all curation tasks, but cannot perform configuration tasks.

Adding a new user

  1. Select Add a new user.
  2. Enter the Stanford email address of the person you want to add. This must be the version that uses the person's original SUNet ID, not a Stanford email alias.
  3. Select a role for the new user. If you assign the role of "Admin" to the user, that user will be able to perform any administrative or curatorial action on the site, including creating other users. If you assign the role of "Curator" to the new user, that user will be able to modify the settings on all of the Curation pages and be able to add and edit exhibit content, but won't have access to any of the Administration settings.
  4. Click Save changes. The new user will now be authorized to sign in to your exhibit.

Removing or updating the role of a user

A user with the role of "Admin" can edit an existing user to update that user's role or to remove that user from the exhibit team. To edit an existing user, click the pencil icon under Actions.
