In Plek there are different users’ rights:
- User: Most people are only ‘user’. They can use the platform, send messages and upload different things.
- Admin: A few users are also ‘admin’. If you are an Admin, you are more or less the moderator of your Plek. You have also access to the Admin panel (e.g. change the user's rights and read statistics).
- Content Manager: Some users are content manager (instead of Admin). Content managers are able to change most of the content and to see the statistics. They don't have access to the Admin panel.
- External users: Besides regular users, there are also ‘external users’, which are people outside of your organization. They have access to (a part of) your Plek to work together with people from your own organization.
- Read only*: The last type of user is ‘Read only’. This role gives you the opportunity to read and hoover through Plek but a demo has no active role. So, it's impossible for this person to publish messages, upload documents or write comments or likes.
* Place believes in participating. Therefore, by default, this role is not enabled on platforms.

In the admin panel, you see there are different components on the left sidebar, including Users. In the standard settings of the admin panel, the first component is Users.
- Go to a user. Press the edit button on the right.
The basic information, such as e-mail address, name and rights, of the concerning person is now shown. Here it is possible to change the user’s rights.
- Choose and select a role.
- Press save.
The role of this account is now adjusted. It is possible to make these changes at any time.
An external user is not visible by default for all the Plek users. As Admin it is possible to change this. When the box ‘platform’ is ticked, the other users of your Plek are able to see the external user and it is possible to invite him/her to groups.
