Website Management System
The website allows for a variety of users to sign-up to the website, with access managed by custom registration codes.
Once users’ have registered they can access restricted parts of the website, such as media resources and interactive activities, from a user-friendly “Account apps” dashboard.
The sign-up process is designed to be quick and easy, with robust (but subtle) security measures that ensure only genuine users can sign-up. Features include:
- Email validation checks
- Registration code required
- Automatic registration email process
- Forgot password function
We created a web-based user management system allowing for a method of monitoring and managing users that is easy to use. Core functions include:
- Ability to create new users
- Ability to create new user types
- Grant access permissions to different user types
- Invite new sign-ups to register
Our custom-made user management tool operates seamlessly with the rest of the website, using standard web languages for efficient functionality.
Administration can monitor user registration numbers, edit individual user profiles, and view core data such as registration date/time and last log-in metrics.
