  • User Titles

    I want people in my staff to have a company user title like "Support Team", "Development Team", "Billing Support", etc... but I really don't want to create a usergroup for each team and it would be much easier if I didn't have to edit each person profile manually. I tried adding a rank for each title so I could just assign ranks instead but its not working because as soon as a customer hits that number of posts they will get the rank as well.

    I did create a usergroup just to try it and I am in Administrator group. I added myself to the Development Team group as a second group and set the Can override primary group title/markup option in the control panel but its not overriding my Administrator user title with the title of my second group.

    I want them to use all of the permissions from their primary group and only get the title from the secondary group. Unless I can assign titles another way besides user groups that would be better.

    I don't want to edit each person manually. Its going to be too hard to track them, and then if I need to change the user title later, I have to go in and edit every person profile manually. I would like to update in only one place and have it effect all employees.

    You can limit User Ranks to specific usergroups.

      It looks like then I still need to create a seperate usergroup for each department. I have a usergroup for developement team right now so how come when I set it as my secondary group the title doesn't override my primary title?

      The option I set says its supposed to override my primary title.

        When multiple usergroups are involved, the users would decide which title they want. User titles are different from ranks.

          OK I fixed it they can just set the option in the profile easy. But can't I display usergroup title in color?

          HTML Code:
          <font color="blue">Development Team</font>
          I put in the usergroup title box but its not getting displayed in color when the page loads.
