Learn how to add or import members to your 2log.io instance

To add new members you can either use the web portal or the 2log Admin app.

2log has two separate user administrations. Members and administrators are managed separately and independently. This page is only about adding members.

Add a single member

The easiest way to add a new member is via the app or web portal. The procedure is identical for both variants.

  1. Log in to your 2log instance with your admin account.
  2. Switch to the “User” menu item
  3. Click “New user”
  4. Fill in the form fields.
    • The alias field is optional. The alias must be unique and can be used by the members besides the email address to log in. If there is already a user with this alias, an error message will be displayed. The alias can also be used to call the user by his nickname.
    • The eMail address is mandatory and must be unique. If there is already a user with this email address, an error message will be displayed.
    • Currently there are three different roles: “Member”, “employee” and “guest”. Unlike “employee”, “guest” is not yet used productively. The role Employee is relevant for the machine time accounting where there is the option “Free for employees”.
  5. In the “Account balance” box, a starting balance can be set and an RFID card can be added.
    • If you use the app on an RFID-enabled smartphone, you can scan the new card directly with your phone.
    • Alternatively, the use of an “Admin Dot” is possible. This can be set up in the “Administration” area and allows convenient reading of cards from the web app.
  6. Grant access rights to individual machines or groups
  7. Click on “Create user”.

Congratulations! This is your first community member.

Add members with the CSV importer

If many users are created at once, for example when the new class starts the semester, the CSV Importer is the better choice.

  1. Log in to your 2log instance with your admin account.
  2. Switch to the “User” menu item
  3. Click “CSV Import”
  4. Download the sample template to see an example of a valid import file.
    • The importer uses the labeling of the header, i.e. the first line, to assign the individual fields. Accordingly, it does not cause any problems if additional fields or a different order is used.
  5. Upload your CSV File. You will now see a preview of the records found.
    • If no role has been assigned yet, you can assign one using the button in the header of the preview. The same applies to the group. It is possible to add a group permission to a record uploaded via CSV.
  6. Confirm the import with a click on “start import”.
