Is there a way to allow non-admins to approve users?


(Bas van Leeuwen) #1

We have a closed forum that requires approval of all new users, I’d like to give some people the rights to invite and approve users.
Reason is that they’ll be in a different timezone from the admin staff and this would speed things up.

I’d prefer not to grant them full admin rights.

Is there a way to do this?

I belive that moderators can approve users.

What about adding moderators in different timezone?

@pfaffman you are completely right and correct, never realised that moderators had access to the admin menu

@railsID it takes quite a bit of effort to have 24/7 coverage :slight_smile:
More specifically, these are people that give trainings (the required documentation is embedded in our Discourse) all over the globe, so the specific timezone fluctuates.

More surprising is having access to the admin menu and not understanding why some things are missing!
