About Users

Overview

Users are the core of your Tutor Trove site. A user is someone with an account on your website, and each one falls into one of two major categories:

Tutors and Clients

Tutors

Tutors are employees. This category includes three groups of people:

  • Full Admins
  • Limited Admins
  • Regular Tutors

Clients

Clients are customers. This category includes two groups of people:

  • Students
  • Parents

We've grouped our Clients into convenient units called Families.

Families are linked groups of clients. Within each Family, the admin can add as many students and parents as they want. The benefit of having families is that all the balances of the students within an individual family pool together, and any and all of the parents can pay everything off.

When adding new Clients, they must be assigned to a new or existing Family.
