Here you can manage special types of website membership assigned to the edited user. Each membership represents a collection of roles. When a membership is assigned to a user, it automatically authorizes that user to perform any actions allowed for all contained roles.
Global administrators have the option of selecting for which site the memberships will be managed using the drop‑down list at the top of the page. Only sites to which the given user is assigned on the Sites tab may be chosen. The (global) option can be selected to access memberships that are not limited to a single site.
If this tab is viewed in CMS Desk by a site‑specific administrator, only the memberships belonging under the current site will be available.
To add a membership to the user, simply click the Add membership button and check the boxes next to the appropriate memberships in the displayed selection dialog. You can use the Valid to field at the bottom of the dialog to assign the membership for a limited time only. The Calendar button can be clicked to easily select the exact date and time when the membership should expire. If this field is left empty, the membership will be assigned to the user for an unlimited time period. If you set an expiration date for the membership, you can also check the Send notification box to enable e‑mail reminders that will be sent to the selected users before the membership becomes invalid.
Click OK to apply any changes.
The Change validity action that is available for every listed membership may be used to prolong or shorten the time interval for which the membership should be assigned to the user. This way you can set an expiration date for unlimited memberships or reactivate expired ones.
Memberships can be removed from the user at any time using the checkboxes in the list together with the Remove selected button.
