How do I invite new users?
To invite new users to your company, first click on the Invite new users button in the top-right corner of the Users section.
In the Invite users to your company dialog, enter a list of the email addresses of users you’d like to invite. You can use a comma to separate individual addresses.
You will need to assign the proper roles for your users upon inviting them by clicking the drop-down menu. Optionally, you may also choose to pre-assign users to one or more teams.
Once you've entered the email addresses of users you'd like to invite, click the Send button to send them an invitation link via email.
Existing users already set up on Monotype Fonts can request that their admins add new users to the platform. Every request should include all pertinent details, as the pending requests will be reviewed by admins in the Invited tab.
What are pending invites?
Pending invites are user invites that have not been accepted yet. Invitations last for 14 days, after which the link sent to the invited user’s email address will automatically expire.
Review all pending invitations in the Invited tab of the Users section.
Rather than waiting the 14 days for the invite to auto-cancel, admins can also revoke a sent invite that has not yet been accepted by the user.
Where do I find a list of all users?
You can find a list of all users by clicking the Users tab on the dashboard.
The list of users is present in a tabular format, divided into columns containing the following details:
Users: Displays users’ names, email addresses, and profile photos
SSO group: In the case of users logging into Monotype Fonts via single sign-on, this column displays the name of the group they belong to (groups in Monotype Fonts are usually mapped to those defined in your company’s active directory system, while unmapped users are automatically included in a “default” group)
Team: Name(s) of the team(s) your users belong to
Role: Role(s) assigned to your users
Action: Provides the option to activate or deactivate users
How do I find a particular user?
The search bar at the top of the Users list allows you to run a quick search for a particular user at your company.
The + Add filters button next to the user search bar allows you to filter the user list based on users' roles and teams.
How do I revoke user access?
To revoke access to the Monotype Fonts platform and all synced fonts, an admin must deactivate the user. Deactivation is the best way to terminate the access of an employee who’s no longer with the company, as deactivated accounts can no longer access the Monotype Fonts platform and all synced fonts. It also frees up a seat to be reassigned as needed.
Deactivated accounts can be reactivated later, or fully deleted from the platform.
How do I deactivate or reactivate a user?
To deactivate a user, make sure you’re on the Active tab in the Users section.
Click the Deactivate button for the user account you need to deactivate. The button can be found on the right side of the screen.
To reactivate a user, click the Inactive tab.
Then, click the Activate button on the right side of the screen.
What are roles?
Roles are customized sets of permissions for users and teams at your company. Your Monotype Fonts account comes with two pre-existing non-editable roles: "Admin" and "Full Access." You can create up to five additional custom roles according to the needs of your teams.
How do I create roles?
To create custom roles, click on the + button next to the Roles header:
You can pick and choose the permissions associated with every role you create.
What are the permissions that I can configure for my custom roles?
There are four kinds of permissions you can configure for your custom roles:
Install any font or family: Allows users to sync any font or family from the inventory using the Monotype App
Install any font or family from a shared font list only: Allows users to sync only fonts and families included in the font lists shared with them using the Monotype App
Download font files: Gives users the ability to download any of the fonts or families from the inventory
Download font files from shared font list only: Allows users to download only fonts and families included in the font lists shared with them
Download web font projects SHKs: Allows users to download self-hosting kits (SHKs) for web fonts
Organize & share
Create My Library assets: Gives users the ability to create My Library assets
Share assets: Allows you to specify whether users can share assets with anyone in the company or with their respective teams only
What are teams?
Teams are admin-defined user groups. Admins can use teams to streamline library access and collaboration, and to gain insights into the different groups working with your organization’s fonts.
How do I create and delete a team?
To create a team, click on the + button next to the Teams title.
In the New Team dialog, enter a Name for your team, and optionally, a Description.
Click Done to finish creating your team.
To delete a team, click on the name of the team you wish to delete, and in the team dialog, click the Delete team button in the top-right corner.
How do I add and remove users to a team?
To add users to your team, click on the name of a team you would like to add users to.
In the team dialog, under Add users to this team, add users by typing in their email address of name and clicking on the Add button.
Click Done to finish adding users to your team.
To remove users from a team, click on the name of the team you wish to remove users from. In the team dialog, remove a user by clicking on the remove icon (indicated by a trash can symbol) beside their name.
You can also search for particular users using the search bar at the top of the dialog.
Click Done to finish making edits to your team.
