Hi Cristián

Thanks for the reply and your offer to take this back to the dev team.

You wrote:-
So the count is not needed after the subscription ends, I guess that’s why it’s reset. The count is reset every time the period specified in the restriction ends, too.

That’s not really true though, its not simply a counter, its way more than that LoL its a list of all the files they downloaded. The fact that you even have 2 different access logs. one for the current term and one for the past terms makes a lot of sense. It seems logical to me that the current term is cleared and that the items there are swept into the past term log. It ought not to matter if the account is renewed before the current term expires or after.

The way it works now (as far as I can tell) is that if the subscription is renewed before the account expires then the download log is kept, but as soon as it expires both logs are cleared.

Hope that makes sense.

Well ok, sort of..

However it is S2member that has changed the permissions that is globally preventing the access to all the admin pages, which is why I posted the question here not in the wordpress support forums.

In looking at Mailchimp its clear that is the correct way for me to go as their API and the general quality is well worth the $50- 70 a month.

I have configured the Mailchimp API integration and tested that a new subscriber goes thought the double-opt-in process. All looks great!

However I don’t see anywhere an easy way to sync my existing 6,000 plus S2member subscribers, with my Mailchimp lists or without a second opt in process. I see I can manually export them from S2member and import them via csv into mailchimp in which case they will not have double opted in, but I guess I can live with that.

Is there any better process? I was kind of expecting a button to sync them up once the API hooks were made.

Many thanks

Correct :-)

Bingo, every one a winner :-)

Well the reality is that if the Admin has full control of the user name, email address and password they have full control anyway as they can simply login as the user and change whatever they like :-)

I agree they don’t necessarily need to have full access to the profile within the application, but they do need to change the email address and user name and be able to reset the pwd.

If the account is being used within a business as our are. Its important that the parent and stake holder has full control and visibility of the child accounts.
In our case the Parent is the Senior System Admin pays for the account and assigns the child accounts to the sys-admins (children) to download applications. The Senior Sysadmin needs visibility on who downloads what and what access the sys-admins have, they will also suspend and replace the child accounts as needed when the sys-admins depart their position and are replaced by new employees.

In the case where a parent and child are being used within a social group like a club, then yes your correct there is not so much of a need for the parent to have such granular control, but even then, its still typical for the Main admin to have full control over the child accounts to fix any issues that may arise.

Hi Cristián

Here are my thoughts on features as you request.

– Child accounts must have a reference to the parent account.
So you can find them in reports and searches
– The Child accounts are identical to a normal account except they have the parent reference.
– Child accounts can have any access level equal to or lower than the parent.
For example a master account is say Level 7 a child can be 7, 6,5,4,3,2,1, or 0
The level for each child is assigned by the parent.
– Downloads: The administrator can assign elect if the downloads are per user or per group.
For example each child and the parent can have 100 downloads each. Or the whole group can have 500 downloads
– The Parent can see either the download count per child, or the total downloads (nice to have both)
– The administrator can assign how many child accounts a parent has. (this is a little like some Governments lol)
– The parent creates the child accounts via his/her profile where there is an add Child Account button they fill in the details and there is a dropdown to choose the Level for the account.
– The parent has the ability to modify the child account profile but other than the password the child does not.
– If you want to get granular you may want to design it where the child accounts can create infant accounts. This helps with large organizations that have Departments or Divisions.

I think that will do it for me. Hope that helps.
