User Roles allow map administrators to assign detailed permissions to other Content Manager System users.
1. To access Use Role settings, select the “Account” button in the top right hand corner of the Content Management System (CMS).
2. On the Account page, navigate to the “Roles” tab.
3. Along the left hand side of the page, there is a section titled "Add Role". Once you select your map ID, a long list of permissions will drop down. From here, create what permissions each role is allowed.
4. Once permissions are selected, click "Save Role" and you will see the new role pop up along the right hand side. If you already have users created, don't forget to go back and modify the associated roles for those users.
Let's say you have an intern helping, but you would only like them to add/edit content, not publish. Select the permissions you would like (see full list below) and name it as you wish. In this example, the role would have: Edit Category, Add Category, Edit Location, Add Location. In addition, you might allow this role to delete both Categories and Locations. You would not allow this role to publish changes should they need to be reviewed by a supervisor before going live on the map.
