Room administrators are able to control who is able to participate in engagements created in a room that they manage using the Domain restrictions feature. This feature allows administrators to:
- Require all participants to log in to ThoughtExchange with an email address and password before participating in any engagement created in their room.
- Restrict participation to email addresses in a given domain.
Note: Activating Domain restrictions will impact participation in all current and past engagements in your Room.
To navigate to the Domain restriction settings for your room simply click the avatar icon in the top right-hand corner of the page, select Room settings, and make sure you are on the General tab. You will need to be a room or account administrator to have access to this view.
Click on the Domain restrictions toggle to change it to ‘On’; the Participation login/sign up toggle will automatically move to ‘On’ as well.
The next step is to enter the domain(s) you want the account restricted to (for example ‘thoughtexchange.com’).
Once you have entered the appropriate domain(s), click ‘Add’, then click ‘Apply’ at the bottom of the screen.
Note: you cannot activate domain restriction on a room that contains an existing confidential engagement that has utilized individualized links or code access (learn more here). Likewise, confidential engagements cannot utilize individualized links or code access if they are created in a room where Domain restriction is on.
