Create New Bynder Users

  • Updated

As a Bynder administrator, you can create new users and give them certain rights within the portal.

Users may also be created by allowing them to register or by logging in via Single Sign On (SSO).

Before You Begin

Each user will also need to be added to a permission profile. Before creating users, make sure that you set up permission profiles ahead of time. Learn more about permission profiles here.

How to Add Users

Add a Single User

  1. Navigate to Settings > Users & rights > User Management.

  2. Click Add new user.

  3. Fill in the required fields.

  4. (Optional) Fill in the optional fields.

  5. (Optional) Click the Groups dropdown to add the user to one or more user groups. Learn more about groups here.

    Tip

    We recommend creating groups prior to adding users to save time.

  6. Click the Set user profile dropdown and select the permission profile.

  7. Check the Active box to activate the user account. Only active users can log in to Bynder. If this is not marked, the user will not be able to activate their account.

  8. (Optional) Check the box to Send email notification if you want the user to receive a notification that their account has been created and to create their own password.

    Note

    We typically recommend allowing the user to create their own password, rather than creating it for them.

  9. (Optional) Check the SSO user box to ensure that the user can sign in with their SSO credentials only. This prevents the user from setting their own Bynder username or password.

    Note

    If you do not see SSO user as a checkbox and if you would like to enable in your account, please contact your Customer Success Manager.

  10. Click Save to create the user account.

Add Multiple Users

In addition to adding a single user, you can also add multiple users at once. When you add them, you will be able to enter their email address, and assign them to permission profiles, but you cannot add additional profile details, such as name, country, etc. If you would like to create multiple users at once with additional profile details, please contact your Customer Success Manager.

  1. Navigate to Settings > Users & rights > User Management.

  2. Click Add multiple users.

  3. Enter the email addresses you want to create accounts for in the text field.

    Note

    Make sure you separate the email addresses with a comma.

  4. Click the Active box to allow the users to log in to Bynder.

  5. Click the Send email notification box if you want the users to get a notification that their account has been created. By selecting this option, the user can set up their own password and also add additional profile details.

    Caution

    If you select this option but do not select the Active option, the users will receive a notification to contact a person within their organization. They will also not be able to log in to the system.

  6. Click Save to create new users.
