Users and Groups

Users, groups & members

When you use Oasis, you are logged in as a user. A user has properties such as name & email address. Most important of the user is that it serves as an identity of a person.

A user is member of one or more organizations in Oasis. You can become a member of an organization in the following ways:

  • Create a new organization. You will become the first member and owner of that organization.
  • Be invited to join an organization. Once accepted (by the invited user), this user becomes a member of the organization.

If the number of members of an organization becomes large, it helps to group users. In Oasis a group is part of an organization and a group contains a list of users. All users of the group must be member of the owning organization.

In the People section of the dashboard you can manage users, groups and invites for the organization.

To edit permissions of members see Access Control.
