Note that any features we demonstrate here are still in development, so things about them may change before they're released in a 1.2 beta.
The first feature is rather important, though fairly simple to explain. In 1.2, you can now merge 2 users. The "source" user will have all of their content assigned to the "target" user and then the "source" user will be deleted.
It's very easy to use. From the user edit page in the admin CP, you can choose to merge:
Then it's just a matter of choosing who you want to merge into:
Bulk User Management
The other major improvement to user management is that you can now take an action on many users at once. Let's see how it works. First, you simply enter the criteria for the users to want to modify:
This is just your standard user search form. As it stands, this form is identical to how it is in 1.1, but we'll be expanding it to give more search options.
Once you enter the criteria and submit the form, you get to see how many users matched along with the ability to view those matches. When you're happy, you can simply choose the action(s) you want to take and submit the form. Done!
There are still some improvements coming to these features to provide more options, but these should hopefully address one of the short comings in XF 1.1.
