The Benefits of Adding Users to Your LawLytics Account

by Mar 16, 2019

Did you know that you can add an unlimited number of users to your LawLytics account?

With LawLytics, you can add as many users as you like and assign the degree of control and access they have to your website. There are a number of benefits to adding users to your account: You can do things such as letting a summer associate blog for you, let your receptionist manage your leads, or let other attorneys in your firm develop their thought leadership through blog posts and practice area pages.

With the LawLytics website system, you decide what your team can do. Here are a number of ways that adding new users can benefit your law firm.

You can provide the appropriate level of access for other users

You may want the staff and/or attorneys at your firm to access your website in different ways. For example, you may want to give a fellow attorney user complete access to all pages on your site — giving them the ability to freely make changes and publish new content. However, you may want to provide limited access to a summer associate who is ghostwriting blog posts for your law firm. (More on ghostwriting below.)

You can take advantage of LawLytics’ ghostwriting features

For attorneys with less time available to write — or who want to supplement their website with additional content — it can make sense to hire a ghostwriter.

When it comes to choosing ghostwriters, one of the most important elements is ensuring the proper oversight and editorial control.

LawLytics makes this easy to do with our ghostwriting feature. You can add a new user, decide who the user ghostwrites for, and review any blog posts they create before they are published on your website.

Read on to learn how to add a new user to your account, change their access level, and/or select a user as a ghostwriter.

How do I add a new user to my LawLytics account?

To add a new user to your LawLytics account, navigate to the menu in the top right-hand corner of the LawLytics control panel. From the drop-down menu that appears, select “Users & Access.”
Next, click on the green “New” button.
Add the new user’s information into the provided form.

If the new user is an attorney, check the provided “Attorney” box. Attorney users can publish blog posts in their own name. They also have an optional attorney profile on your firm’s website.

How to change user permissions in your LawLytics account

To change permissions for a user, navigate to the Users & Access Menu and, from the menu on the left, select the user whose permissions you’d like to change.
Scroll to the Permissions menu, where you’ll be able to select the level of access each user has in a variety of areas.
  • By selecting “No Access”, the user can neither access the selected area, nor make edits.
  • By selecting “Contributor”, the user can only see and edit items they have created.
  • By selecting “Admin”, a user is able to see and edit all material for which they are given “Admin” access.
Example: An attorney may want to give an intern or ghostwriter “Contributor” access to blog posts and social media but “No Access” to other areas of your website. In the below image, this intern has access to pages, blog posts, and social media, but no access to other areas of the website.
