Introducing: Site User Roles for Selective Control Panel Access
We’re kicking 2023 off with a bang here at Rocket.net by launching our all-new Site User Roles feature update.
Since the beginning, customers have always been able to create sub-users on their account, but that meant they had access to all of their sites. What if you had a developer or customer that only needed access to a specific WordPress site’s control panel?
Today, that is all possible with our easy to use Site Users feature. Site Users can be thought of like inviting a collaborator to a specific site where access can be revoked at any time.
But wait… what if you don’t want it to be branded Rocket.net?! I’m glad you asked! When inviting a Site User to manage a WordPress site on your account, they will receive an email from a white-label domain with links to an unbranded URL for accessing the control panel.
Site User Roles: How to invite a user to a specific WordPress site
Once logged in to your Rocket.net account, simply look for the new Users section under the Overview tab for your site:
Once here, you can click Add Site User to invite a user to your site.
The best part? Site Users are roaming profiles throughout all of Rocket.net. Once your Site User accepts their invite and sets a password, they can easily be granted access to any site on Rocket.net. This is especially powerful for agencies that want to provide selective access to individual sites.
How Site Users access the WordPress Control Panel
Once their initial invite to the control panel is accepted, Site Users will be able to login to the white-label control panel:
Once logged in, Site Users will be able to see a list of pending invites as well as sites they can manage:
Finally, Site Users will be able to effortlessly manage the site(s) they have access to with just a click:
While this feature may seem like a no-brainer, we always try to take them to the next level. Today, this feature is already completely white-labeled to protect your brand, but soon you’ll even be able to upload a logo and completely customize the Site User control panel!
Stay tuned for more announcements!
