How do I add or modify a role?
Roles are designed to limit access to only the tools your users - editors, writers, management, marketers and so on - need to do their jobs. Simply assign a new user a role, which is associated with privileges. Privileges provide access to specific tools within your website's back-end. For example, two of the tools an editor needs access to are Article Manager and the Blog Post Manager. He would need to be assigned a role that allows access to those tools. A user will only see a greyed-out link on the dashboard after logging in if he does not have access to a particular tool.
Reminder: Any change to a role will impact all admin users assigned to that role. They may have to log out and log back in to see any changes.
If you have questions about Roles & Privileges, please contact your Solutions Manager. We are happy to help you set up Roles.
1. Open the Role & Privilege Manager by clicking Create a Role next to Role & Privilege under SysAdmin on your dashboard.
1.1. Assign an Internal Name. It should be all lowercase, separated by a "." For example:
2. To add a new privilege to a role, click the box next to the privilege.
When a privilege is added or removed from a role, that user will see those privileges (tools) greyed out in the main navigation of their website's administration. A user assigned that role will no longer be able to click on those tools.
