|0018832||phpList 3 application||Interface - Editor||public||22-08-17 08:13||04-05-18 17:10|
|Status||resolved||Resolution||no change required|
|Summary||0018832: Categorised lists not selectable unless super admin|
|Description||I have recently added two users to my phpList install. Both users only have rights to send messages. Both new users cannot select a list to send a message to, they only have the "all mailinglists" option. Only when I promote them to "super admin", they do have the categories-tabs an can select the mailing lists.|
|Steps To Reproduce||- As a super admin, create mailing list categories|
- Create a normal user, with only "send message" rights
- Log in as the normal user
- Create a new message and go to the "select mailing list" tab
- Confirm that the categories tabs are not there
|Additional Information||The problem occurs with both the classic and the new theme.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||For me it's working fine. Make sure that the non-super-admin user is the owner of the Subscriber List you want to send to, and the respective tab (of the Category containing the particular list) will show up.|
||Thanks for the reply, Appletech. I wasn't aware of the fact that lists have an owner. I think I have a problem then. I am working with multiple editors, who have to be able to send messages to all lists. If I don't want those editors to be super admins, is there another way to let them "share" lists?|
No, unfortunately not. I have the same problem too.
You can ask the developers (feature request) to extend phplist so as to allow a subscriber list to be owned by multiple users/administrators. This would solve the problem.
The only way two or more admins can use the same subscriber list is that they be super admins (except of course for the owner).
||I thought that it would be a good idea to add such a feature request, so I added this: https://discuss.phplist.org/t/multiple-owners-for-subscriber-lists/3175|
||Another workaround is for them to share login details (use a single account), but I appreciate that may not be enough for your situation.|
