Restricting Content Moderation
How to Restrict Event Editors & Event Authors
- Allowed: Access to only this Filter. If you Allow someone to a Filter, Group, and/or Department, they have permission to moderate (approve/reject) events in their designated Classification and submit events to other Classifications via the Public Submission Form for approval by an Event Editor/Author assigned to that Classification.
- Excluded: Access to all Filters except this Filter. When you Exclude someone from a Filter, Group, and/or Department, this prevents an Event Editor/Author from interacting with anything associated with that Classification. This also means that they will not be able to submit an event via the Public Submission Form for approval.
- Selecting a Parent Filter Item will allow the user to access all its Child Filter Items.
Once a user is Allowed to Filters, Groups, and/or Departments, they will only have access to those Classifications. In comparison, once a user is Excluded from Filters, Groups, and/or Departments, they will not have access those Classifications.
How Does It Work?
- When adding events, only the Classifications the Event Editor/Author is Allowed to will appear in the form for them to choose from.
- When moderating events, the Event Editor/Author will only be able to see and edit events that have at least one of their Allowed Classification items.
- Example: If an event has the Filter "Health & Wellness" and "Community", an Editor/Author Allowed to "Community" will be able to see and edit the event because it has at least one of their Allowed Filter Items assigned to it.
- The Pending Queue will automatically update to show events with an Editor/Author's Allowed Classifications or update to show no events if none of the pending events match at least one of their Allowed Classification items.
- Similarly, if an Event Editor/Author with restricted permissions receives the Pending Digest email, then the email will include all pending events, but when the Event Editor/Author navigates to the Pending Queue in the Admin Dashboard, they will only be able to see and moderate those events matching their Allowed/Excluded Permissions.
- BEST PRACTICE -
We suggest having at least one Event Editor/Author with access to all Classifications (leaving the Allowed/Excluded sections blank). If a user submits an event and forgets to add the Classification item the Event Editor/Author is Allowed to, the Event Editor/Author will not see the event in the Pending Queue for moderation.
