I can see the value in being able to copy user templates but the only value is saving a few minutes of the admins time when setting up the server. I suspect most admins only create a few users and tend to leave them alone once setup. If the addition of this feature requires significant rework of the software I would rather the Emby devs spent that time on other critical areas instead. I realize that someone like myself who spent 3 minutes setting up my 6 users is probably not the target audience for this feature though.

It is a nice request but looking at this from a Home user perspective you will never have that many household users.

Having Groups or a template is not just for creating users, if you add a new library or make some other changes you could make the change to one group or one template and it will apply to all users.

 

Right now if you add a library and have say 5 users you have to go into each user account and add the library.

 

 

 

 

It is a nice request but looking at this from a Home user perspective you will never have that many household users.

Remember, if you support this as a feature request, please like the first post. That's how they track interest 

 

I vote for "groups" you can add users too, new or existing. And these groups would define what accesses and libraries a user has access to. Also sets the default "theme" and all that jazz. Nothing annoys me more than having to go limit the libraries and turn off "delete content" on every new user. I'm still finding people who I missed turning off the delete option for. One day that's going to bite me in the A$$.

I was just gonna ask the same question.

Setting up 15 users after a fresh install is a slight annoyance.

Would love a users/groups feature. Editing individual accounts is a real pain in the ass!

I'm sorry, even if it is considered interesting and useful after 1 years nothing has been done.
 
The answer is always the same: "It's possible for the future"
 
maybe I'm wrong but I haven't found any meaningful suggestions that have materialized.
 
I stopped giving suggestions

Lately I only see unecessary features or bugs being implemented. There a many good feature requests in the commnunity that never get implemented. The answer is either: "It's possible for the future." or "Why would we need that?" The only feature that I've requested for a while is to have recommendations on front page like every streaming service has it, which has been ignored either.

The moment when emby devs decided to go closed source and stop listening to the community was the beginning of the end of this project.

Absolutely nothing in our development process changed with the move to closed source except for us no longer giving away our source for free. 

 

We apologize that we cannot do everything right now.   There is a lot that we want to do and a lot of things that need to be done and there are just so many hours in the day.

 

Thanks.
