Question regarding account management
« on: Aug 07, 14, 06:39:55 PM »



Regarding the image I posted of the account management system, my questions are:

What are each of the options circled in red used for?

Which ones are required for me to provide to my team of developers to be able to build our game?

Finally as a side question, will my personal name be visible to anyone on my team, or will they only ever see my Username and forum name?

I realize these may seem like trivial questions, but please bear with me as I am new to how hero works.

Thank you all for your time,

-Khay

Not sure about the visibility of the personal name, but of those options you circled, just give all your devs the dev one, unless you have a very big team and need to divide them into more specialized categories.

Thanks Amanda, But if I have a small team shouldn't I give them QA, BETA and GM?

And what are those Options actually for? I assume, QA is as it sounds, but I am curious about the limitations of each and what they are actually for. I don't want to not give my devs the access they need.

The dev option should cover everything your team will need to be doing at the start of your development process - but you can give them the QA, Beta and GM options too.

There's some misinformation in the early responses above. Those flags are permission sets, and for the most part, there would be no change, nor any reason to, in permissions were you to mark a "developer" as a gm or beta tester. Etc. the link Josh provides has all of the information.

That means it's likely you are misunderstanding how the permissions system works. Make sure you read up on the relevant wiki page.

The wiki shows an option to mark someone as a customer, with no access to dev tools, but that option's not shown on the actual account management page - is that something that's been removed, or is it an upcoming addition?

On a development world, there would be no difference between a QA flag and a customer flag.
