Working with users and privileges
Create and edit users
All users with a Version Cue user name and login (except those whose access level is set to None) can log in to the
Version Cue Workspace Administration utility. However, the tasks they can perform are limited by the privileges
assigned to their user names.
To restrict the Version Cue projects that a user can access, you can edit the project’s existing user names. Or, to
restrict access further, you can create new Version Cue user names and assign them to a specific project. Creating
new names gives you the most control over a project.
Only users who have system administrator privileges can create new user names.
If you’ve configured the Version Cue Workspace to be visible to others in the Version Cue Administration utility, you
don’t need to create and assign Version Cue user names to let other Adobe Creative Suite, Acrobat, or WebDAV users
access your Version Cue projects and the Version Cue Workspace. The users simply need either to be on your
subnetwork or be given the Version Cue Workspace IP or DNS address and port number. After a user accesses the
Version Cue Workspace without using a Version Cue user name, the user name for the user’s own computer is
automatically added to the list of users in the Version Cue Workspace, and the password is left blank.
If you’ve configured the Version Cue Workspace so it grants access only to existing users, you’ll need to create
Version Cue user names to let other Adobe Creative Suite, Acrobat, or WebDAV users access your Version Cue
projects and the Version Cue Workspace.
Create new Version Cue user names
1 Log in to the Version Cue Administration utility.
2 Do one of the following:
• From the Home page, click Add A User.
• Click the Users tab, and then click New in the content frame.

Denies the user access to the Version Cue Workspace Administration utility; however, the user can access
Version Cue projects while working in an Adobe Create Suite component or in Acrobat.

projects, and backing up and restoring projects.
Grants the user all privileges.
4 Type the user’s name in the User Name box.
5 Type a unique login in the Login box. The login is needed in Adobe Creative Suite components or in Acrobat, if
a project requires it, to log in to the Version Cue Workspace Administration utility.
6 Type a password for the user in the Password box, and type it again in the Verify Password box.
7 (Optional) Type a phone number, an email address, and comments in the remaining text boxes. Make sure to enter
an email address if the user will participate in Version Cue PDF reviews and will receive email invitations.
8 To define the user’s project access, choose the user’s project privileges next to each project name in the Privileges
column. To give the user the same privileges for every project, choose an option from the Set All To menu.
9 To let a user publish a project to a specified FTP or WebDAV server, select the check box in the Publishing
Privilege column next to the project name.
