    Thinking of purchasing Rosters add on.

    How does this work from an admin perspective? Do we need to set up xenforo user groups and then set up the roster? Or does it sync automatically? Seems redundant.

    How much power does a user have in the Roster addon? Or does the admin have to do everything?

    Right now there's no import function, we're looking into the best approach for this. All users are added manually and only people with permissions can edit the users. Another thing we're looking into is letting users update their own fields depending on permissions / options what not.

    But currently this should be treated as literally an admin would set everything up.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Yikes. I have 6 big guild chapters ... with many hundreds of accounts :(

    There should be a batch sync command in your add on that allows smooth process, a select all option with the opportunity to deselect individual accounts (perhaps inactive guildies can remain on the xenforo directory but not the Roster add on... )

    I'm rooting for ya'll to make this sync with the member directory.

    Perhaps one way to do this would be to provide a button on the profile so admins (or guild leaders) can add them.

    Another way is an auto promote feature. Snogs applications add on automatically promotes accepted applicants into a certain user group. There can be a hook added to the register feature. Once you become registered you get added to the roster. Perhaps a hook can be added to user groups. Once registered... they get added to the roster...

    The way it is now, Im asking my guild leaders to do double work here. Still I like this addon... Really stuck here :)
