Standardize user type names
I find the names of user types in Freedcamp confusing.
On the 'Manage apps and team page' the teams are called: Organiser, Contributor, Team Player, Observer.
However at the top of the page they are Admin, Pro User, User and Read only.
Then in the Legend linked to alongside those it has additional Owner and Group Admin roles too.
May I suggest
a) standardising the Contributor/User and Team Player/Pro user labels,
b) Removing or setting apart the Owner and Group Admin roles from the legend in this instance since it seems they are not relevant to the set up for teams.
c) Including the one line permission explanations used on the Add user screen to the Manage apps and team page
We wanted to explicitly separate security profiles which can not be changed and default teams which can be changed.
Also more teams can be added with whatever profile you want.
Does it make sense? I am happy to listen and make adjustments to avoid any confusion.
Currently, we have 4 security profiles for users in a project - last 4 columns here https://freedcamp.com/profiles/help and two higher level access profiles - the first two columns
When you create a project we create 4 teams in a project with the following names
Organizer - security profile Admin
Team Player - security profile Pro User
Contributor - security profile User
Guest - security profile Guest
Observer - security profile ReadOnly
You can remove, rename teams or add new teams.
Each team in a project is always associated with one and only one security profile.
Users are added to a project:
- owner always has access
- project group administrators in a project group a project belongs
- people invited to project teams
- people added to Global Teams
We are working on a new simplified system where it will be no more project teams. Only Global Teams will be used called Teams.
I agree with James. The way team names, levels, the way you charge for team members is organized is pure MADNESS. Nothing makes sense and for admins and companies paying for Freedcamp (I run a non-profit) this is so VERY important.
I'm thoroughly confused and I know I'm not the only one.
Can you at least make some kind of chart showing the relationship between contributor/user, Team player/Pro user.
I work in UX and this is a HUGE flaw in Freedcamp and very unfriendly to all users. Very confusing for those of us that are new users, for those we're trying to on-board, for accounting as well as everyone.
Come on Igor, youv'e got to see this is pure madness, right?
