If you need to remove a user from your community, for example if they no longer work for your organisation or if they are posting inappropriate comments, you can do this in the User Management area.
If you have an Public community, then you will see an option to Ban the user.
If you choose to ban a user from your community they will still have a Crowdicity account (which can be used to sign into other Crowdicity communities they belong to). They will not be able to be able to log into your community to post, vote or comment, but will be able to view content (challenges, blogs, ideas and pages) when logged out. If a banned user wishes to join the community again they will need to be re-invited by an admin.
If you have a Priave community, then you will see the options to Remove the user from your community.
Removed users are not able to log in to your community and will need to request access or be invited by an should they wish to participate in the community again.
