Creating Client and Colleague Accounts

Sometimes you'll want to require your clients or colleagues to have user accounts to access project pages. This provides another layer of security to your project pages so that no non-registered users can view your project pages.

If you're an Administrator and you'd like to create a user account for your client or colleague, go to  Users → Add New. Fill in the required info, choose a password for them, check the box “Send this password to the new user by email” and select the role you wish to give them using the dropdown. 

As of version 2.0, there are several roles included that you can give to your client or colleague accounts. Most of the time a Project Client role is enough for clients and a Project Editor account is great for colleagues. For more information on what capabilities default WordPress roles have with ProjectHuddle, check out the Permissions article.

Your new user will get their password in the email with instruction on how to log in. Once logged in they can change their password and any other info (except their username) by editing their profile.
