Assign roles/ranks by email address

Hi,

 

did anyone ever figure out how to assign a role/rank to people based on email domain? For example, I am trying to assign our Employee role and rank to everyone who signs up with our work email domain... but I can't figure out how to do it.


@MegH if you know the solution to this, I am all ears!

That is an interesting suggestion, I had a look and there was an idea in 2009 https://community.lithium.com/t5/Product-Ideas/Automatically-assign-role-based-on-email-domain/idi-p...

From the comments there it seems it is possible with an SSO setup.

We don't use SSO, so I am assuming there is no other way for assigning roles? Did anyone do this based on email domains?

You'll need SSO to do this automatically, but you can use Admin > User Reports to export the list of users who have registered, which includes their email addresses. You can then batch upload them into the Employee role: https://community.lithium.com/t5/Roles-and-permissions/Import-user-roles-from-a-CSV-file/ta-p/24276
