As a system admin I'd like an easy way to put a site into "single user mode", i.e. only I can access the site.

    Hi Jim,

    Currently, the only way to accomplish this would be to remove all Site Role assignments from the Site. This would mean only users with the ability to bypass all permissions would be able to access the Site.

    Note: you would need to record the existing setup so you can re-assign the Site Roles when you are ready.

    That being said, this definitely sounds like an interesting idea. I highly recommend posting a suggestion on our Idea Exchange for others to vote up and/or comment on.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Hi Ryan,

    Thanks for your reply. Modifying assignments just isn’t practical so it sounds like I’m stuck for the time being. I’ll add it to the suggestions list like you suggested.

    Not a problem at all, Jim. My apologies for not being able to provide a simple solution.

    Just wanted to confirm, were you able to log into the Idea Exchange? If not, we can go ahead and send over another invitation.
