Creating a new user

Login to Google Admin

An admin user of the hyphacoop (Emergency Channel) room needs to add the new employee.

  • Open the Signal app and open the room
  • Open the room setting
  • Click on the Add members button
  • Enter the number or select the contact of the new employee
Matrix (Channels as needed)

If the user already has a Matrix account, they can use their own. If they don't have an account, send a link to our preferred Matrix server (https://chat.tomesh.net) to register. The access token needed to register is hyphaworkercoop.

  • Invite the user to mandatory channels
    • hyphacoop
    • hypha:private-general
  • Invite to other channels as required

If the user needs to be admin in a room and they are on a homeserver other than @tomesh.net only give them a max power of 99. Giving the user a maximum power of 100 will make it impossible to remove the user from the room.
