Forum > Adding Administrators

Hello everyone! I seem to be missing the instructions on how to add administrators. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Gail

Hi Gail! At this time, Instant Church Directory does not support multiple administrators. I know this would be a useful feature and it's something we have captured for the future.
You can share your administrative password among other staff and can even sign in at the same time, you'll just want to be careful to not edit data at the same time to avoid conflicts.

Multiple administrators is something that id definitely needed. Sharing of user IDs/Passwords is never a good practice--especially for admin accounts. Please add this feature.

Hi Joel! I have added your input for our team as well. Thank you so much.

Definitely need multiple administrators. Commenting as seems additional support for the feature may help with priority.

Hi - can someone update this string as to whether this feature is going to be added anytime soon? Thanks!

Hi Kathy,
We do not have plans to add this feature in 2017.

Adding additional administrators would help us a lot. Please consider adding in the future.

This is something that would be VERY useful for us as well. especially the ability to have a "mini" admin with only the directory or only the activities page modification rights.

I'm honestly surprised its not already a feature since all the building blocks are already there.

Laura and Kurt - I have added your comments for our team to review when we select new features to pick up. Thank you so much!

Yes, this would be a very nice addition to your service.

Hi! Last we heard, this wasn't going to be added in 2017. How about 2018? 2019?

I am still in the process of evaluating ICD and seeing that there is only one person that can do any editing via the Administrative sign-in is a big problem. I hope others agree that it would be necessary to have a non-admin person doing data entry. We will need to be able to have a temporary ad min or guest type sign in with the ability to select which fields they can edit. And the ability to change the password when necessary i.e. a change in volunteers or staff. With that feature it may also be helpful to have an activity tracking log by sign in.

What if any, are the plans to update?

We definitely hear you and it is high on the roadmap. It pains us to say this... but we can not guarantee it for 2018. Maybe... but no guarantees.

Adding a tracking log by user is not high on the roadmap, but adding roles with different permissions is.

Have a great day!

Multiple admin ids would be very helpful. Our church is VERY security conscious and sharing ids and passwords is a real no no unless the user changes the password when it changes hands, if only temporarily. I worked for a large IT dept and this is the way we had to handle it in order to avoid audit exposures. Multiples being logged on at the same time also seems quite dangerous.
