Prerequisite: A user must be included in the organization before they can be added to a room. Click here to learn how to add users to an organization.
: Individual functions may not be available due to your assigned right group in the room or role within the organization (see: Further articles
Users / teams
can be added or removed to / from a room by Room Admins
. The Room Admin
must have the role Member
on organizational level, since only then all members of the organization can be viewed and selected.
Tip: You want to prevent users from leaving a room? Use teams to centrally control members of the room.
Adding a member of the organization to a room
Autorized members can add users and teams included in the organization to rooms. There are several ways to proceed. Within the room, you can click on the profile pictures in the upper right corner and then select the option "+ Add users". Alternatively, the administration of room members can be accessed via the Room Settings.
Adding a user via the plus icon
Now, all members (including their user role) of the room are displayed in the tab Members. The search at this point allows you to quickly find people who are included as members within the room. This is especially useful when a large number of users are included and a specific person needs to be searched for.
Overview of the current room members
: By default, the assigned right group
is "Contributor" for the roles Admin / Member / Guest
and "Manually shared" for the role External
. However, the right group "Contributor" can be changed subsequently.
Now, to add a new user to the room, click on the button "Add Member". A dialog box containing all users of the organization will then pop up. Again, you can quickly and easily find users by searching for them in the search bar. To add a user from the list to the room, click on "Add to Room" next to their name. Users with a gray checkmark are already included in the room.
Add users to the room
Exception for encrypted rooms::
Adding a user to an encrypted room may require an additional activation to pass the room password to them. Click here to learn more.
Removing a user from a room
Room Admins can remove users or entire teams from the room via the tab Members within the "Room Settings". Simply click on the button "Remove" next to the respective user or team. Room Admins can also remove themselves from the room here.
Attention: If there would be no other Room Admin left in the room after leaving it, the right must be assigned to another person beforehand (i.e. a person must be appointed Room Admin), so that the room will not get "lost".
Note: If a user is removed from the organization, this user is also automatically removed from all rooms. Again, a transfer of rights may be necessary.
Remove users from the room via the "Remove" button
Users with the role Member / Guest / External can also remove themselves from a room (unless they are a member of a team within the room), i.e. leave this room. However, unlike Room Admins, it is not possible within the "Room Settings", but via the room menu (e.g. accessible via a right click on the room name in the room list of the sidebar) and the selection of the option "Leave Room".
The data of the room remains unaffected when a user is removed or leaves. I.e. all content created by the user will not be removed from the room.
: Be sure to reassign the tasks of a removed user to avoid them getting lost in the room. Using the filter functions
, tasks without an assignment can be found easily.
