3. Approve members

Your new room is initially closed to other CommSy users. The default settings require you to approve all new users before they can enter your room (“Settings” > “Access check”).   CommSy users can apply to join your room by providing a reason.  Membership requests are emailed to moderators. The email contains a link for approving the request.


This is how to approve membership requests:

1. Enter your room and navigate to the “User” section. You will see a list of users that have already been approved.

2. In the box labeled “Restrict list” on the right side of the screen, click the drop-down list next to “Change status.” Select “Is applying” (Fig. 5). The list will now show usernames that have applied to join your room. You can approve them individually or all at once.
