Moderators ability to see emails inconsistent


(Majken Connor) #1

I found a topic about whether or not mods should be able to see email addresses, but I couldn’t find the outcome. We have the use case that our mods are volunteers and we need to be able to restrict them from seeing personal information, or we need to make sure they’ve signed an NDA.

We noticed that moderators are not able to click the “Show email” button on a user’s profile, but they are able to see email addresses by visiting pages like admin/users/list/active and admin/users/list/staff

Whether or not moderators are meant to see email addresses, we assume this inconsistency is a bug. Apologies if this has already been discussed somewhere, happy to be linked to existing discussion!

Is this still an issue?

Yes emails are now hidden in admin as well.
