Once your organisation is created, we can then move onto creating the user accounts. By default, the main admin account will be the one that initially created the account. You can however assign the same responsibilities/parameters to a new account if needed.
The “Users” that you create can be assigned different roles from System Admin, Admin, Badge Issuer, and End User. These are the default roles available, but you can also create your own roles, which you will find later in the document.
To create a user simply click the “User” tab in the admin section on the left-hand side of the interface. From here you can add users with existing accounts or create entirely new user accounts. When creating a new user, you will be prompted to enter details of that account. This includes an email address, first name, last name, and username. You will then be asked to assign the user to an organisation and/or a group. Adding them into a group is entirely optional but they must belong to an organisation.
If you want your badge recipients to have their own personal Openbadges.me backpack account where they can store all their badges and create collections, then you can also create the accounts for them in the same way. Just set their role to “User”. Read the section on the “Backpack Accounts” to learn more.
