User Account Management

Last updated: January 12, 2023

Administrators have the option to manage their Portal's User Accounts by updating, disabling, transferring or deleting them. EventBuilder offers flexible subscription plans, allowing Administrators to adjust the number of Users as needed. 

Note: To add or remove the number of subscriptions available on your Portal, please email care@eventbuiilder.com, linked at the bottom of the General tab in Portal Configuration.

Disabling a User Account 

Admininstrators may find they need to disable a User Account after a personnel change or decreasing the number of subscriber accounts on their Portal.

Note: Active Events and associated Event information connected to a user's account remain active after the User Account has been disabled. Portal Administrator(s) can access and manage all Events and information previously associated with the disabled account. 

To disable a User Account, select the User from the Accounts list:

There may be circumstances when you need to reactivate a previously disabled User Account. If you have subscriptions available, your Portal Administrators may re-enable an account via the Accounts section from their Portal Dashboard.

Note: The 'Change Password' and 'Resend Welcome Email' functions are optional. 

Click 'Save' in the bottom right of the dialog to finish reactivating the User Account. Your User will have immediate access to your Portal.

Transferring an Account to a New User

If your personnel has changed and you need to transfer ownership of a User Account to a new employee, the transfer must be completed by EventBuilder. Email care@eventbuilder.com for assistance. Please send your change request via your email associated with your User Account. 

Note: When transferring a User Account to a new employee, event data from the account is retained and then managed by the new User Account holder. 

After EventBuilder has completed the change, the "Welcome to EventBuilder" email is triggered and sent to the new user, where they will be directed via link to set up a new password:

Upon creating their password, they will log into the portal, accept the Terms of Service when prompted. Your new user will have access to the Event data - past and future - the previous Organizer created. 

Note: To ensure the success of Events the new user will now be managing, we recommend creating new Teams links for all upcoming scheduled Events and replace the existing links via the Schedule Step in your Event build. Once completed, inform any Presenters invited to Events outside of EventBuilder of the Teams URL change.

Note: All EventBuilder Portals are configured with 2-factor authentication. Your User will be prompted for a code to complete their login.

User Account Changes/Updates

Users (Organizers and Administrators) can access and update their individual account records to change and/or update selected information. 

Note: Greyed-out fields on User Account record cannot be edited. Example shown in screenshot:
