Multiple user access

by ShaunHayward on Mon Jun 01, 2020 6:12 pm

I'm working with a small community to provide 15 participants with their domestic water consumption data via a sensor placed on the water meters. Should I create 15 different io accounts, each receiving data having separate emails/logins? Or can one io+ account be logged into by 15 users at the same time, a tablet device will be set up to display the relevant dashboard for each particular participant? Privacy may be an issue with one io account but feeds/dashboard names will be non-identifying.

For security reasons, I would suggest everyone has their own account. You can then use the feed sharing feature to gain access to any feeds necessary. They could also set their feeds as public so the community (and everyone) can all view them, if that is not a security concern. Public feeds are read-only unless you are the owner.
