Web Admin and Common Network Management Console Settings

ZelloWork networks are highly customizable, allowing Admins to adjust user and device settings remotely from the Management Console. To go to your Management Console, type in your network's URL: networkname.zellowork.com. For example, if your network is named "mycompany59", the URL would be "mycompany59.zellowork.com". Sign-in with the username of admin and your password.

Accessing console settings 

  1. From the Management Console, select Settings from the taskbar.

  3. From the right side-bar, select Web Admin or Common. These settings affect all devices on the network, regardless of platform.

NOTE: Settings noted with an asterisk * below can be set as the default using the Management Console. Users can change the default setting on their device and it will stay in effect until the user logs off. Once the user logs back in, the setting reverts back to the default on the Management Console.

Web Admin settings

Any settings changed here affect all users and channels on the network, regardless of device or platform.

Use Tags for Web Admin access: Turning on tags allows you to assign Sub-Admins to different user groups within your company's network. The more tags administrators have, the greater the restriction. This is because they will only be able to view and control those users and channels with the exact same tags. If some administrators have one tag, they will be able to see the users with that tag. If other administrators have two tags, they can only view the users with the two tags.

You can do a lot of things with tags. In fact, non-admin users might find it useful. For example, you can tag people who work in maintenance.  Once you have a maintenance Sub-Admin, the person will be able to make changes to all users tagged with "maintenance," instead of having to wait for the primary Admin to make these changes. (See tagging article.)

Expiration time for SignOn Links:  Designates how long to keep SignOn Links active after their creation. The default is 48 hours.
