YoYotta Server Setup

The server is accessed using a web browser, Safari or Chrome are recommended browsers.

Creating the initial admin user

YoYotta will send a signup link, for security this first link will only work with the matching email.
Contact YoYotta Support if you need to change the email.
Enter the signup email and a new password.

After login you can create additional Admin + Staff users using other email addresses.

Login to the server

Creating a staff account

Admin users can access all projects, so it's best to create a staff account. Staff accounts have controlled access to collections of projects.
Setup staff logins for each staff member. Then they can login to the Server from the YoYotta Mac app to sync project metadata.
Select Admin in the sidebar, go to Users and click the + button.

  • Staff Read + write access to selected Collections of projects

  • Admin Admin users can create new Collections and access all projects.

Enter the user name, company and email address.

User login created

Creating a collection

Projects are grouped together in collections. Collections might be named after clients or types of work. There must be at least one Collection.
Go to Library in the sidebar and select Collections.
Then click the + button. Admin users can create and delete projects in this collection, this can be set to All Staff or Named Users.
By default All Staff can read and write projects this can also be limited to named staff.
