New management options

Delete users, listings, and reviews
from Console. Edit or verify the
email address of a user.


When you're operating your marketplace, you spend most of your day in Flex Console. It allows you to be in control of what's happening on your marketplace without touching code. 

As your marketplace grows, you’ll also need more from your admin tools. The latest Flex release adds many improvements that help manage marketplaces with lots of activity.

Delete content

It's quite common that you need to delete content on your marketplace. A user might ask for their account to be removed, or you might come across content that doesn’t meet your quality standards. Or maybe you have added test content you want to get rid of.

Previously, you needed to contact Sharetribe’s support to take any of these actions. For a marketplace with lots of user-generated content to manage, this certainly wasn’t ideal. Now, you can delete any user-generated content in Console. Just open the "card" of a user, listing or a review, then click the dot menu, and you'll notice the new "delete" option.

Once you click it, you will see a confirmation prompt, so you don't risk deleting any data by accident. The delete action is fully compatible with GDPR legislation, removing all Personally Identifiable Information.

Edit and verify users’ email addresses

If your users are not very technical, you might sometimes need to assist them with things like changing their email addresses or verifying them (sometimes the verification link can end up in their spam folder).

The Edit user view now allows you to change the email address of a user. By default, the email address returns to an "unverified" state if you change it, which means the user can't yet receive emails to it. 

You can then verify the email address yourself using the new action that opens up from the dot menu. Alternatively, you can ask the user to log in and verify it if you want to make sure that the user really controls this new address.
