Roles determine which Conductor features a User has access to by granting them a set of rights.

All sites have a Role called "Admin" that grants a default set of rights.

New Roles can be created and then applied to Users.

For example, a site may need to hire a temporary worker to enter Events for a semester. A Conductor admin for the website can can create a Role that grants that temporary worker access to Events, but not the remainder of the Conductor interface.

Adding a New Role

On the Roles page:

  1. Select "Add New Role" button
  2. Define the rights for the Role by checking the box beside each appropriate option
  3. Select "Save."
