The common form of inter-institute particle physics experiment collaborations generates unique needs for member management including paper authorship, shift assignments, subscription to mailing lists and access to 3rd party applications such as Github and Slack. For smaller collaborations, typically no facility for centralized member management is available and these needs are usually manually handled by long-term members in smaller collaborations but the management becomes tedious as collaborations grow. To automate many of these tasks for the expanding XENON collaboration, we developed the XENONnT User Management Website, a web application that stores and updates data related to the collaboration members through the use of NodeJs and MongoDB. The application allows for the scheduling of shifts for members to coordinate between institutes. User manipulation of 3rd party applications are implemented using REST API integration. The XENONnT User Management Website is open source and is a show case of quick implementation of utility application using the web framework.
