Users accounts are identified by a username and password combination, and all passwords are stored locally in the classroombookings database in a secure hashed format.


User Types

There are currently only two types of users:

  • Administrator:
    • Can do anything in the system.
  • Teacher:
    • Can only create bookings:
      • for bookable rooms
      • up to the number of days ahead (as configured in the Booking in Advance setting)
      • on specific dates (no recurring bookings)
    • No access to management features.

Import from CSV

You can import user accounts from CSV file using the Import page.

import upload

The CSV file needs to be formatted with the following columns:

username, firstname, lastname, email, password

After uploading a CSV in that format, click Create Accounts. Each row in the file will be processed and a user account will be created, if possible.

If a user already exists with the same username, the row will be skipped and no changes will be made to the existing user.

A results page will be shown after they have been processed, displaying the success or failure status of each entry in the CSV file.
