Administrators can manage member permissions by clicking on members under "Administration" in the right sidebar, and then clicking on a member's UserCode to navigate to that member's account information. Member permissions can be set in the Administration options tab.
Several member permission fields can be updated:
|Role||Member, Contributor, Author, Moderator, Editor, Administrator, Governor, Webmaster||See table below. Administrator or higher can change role; Administrator and Governor can promote to role up to one below; Webmaster can promote to level of own role|
|Status||Active, Banned, Denied, Requested||Active is the only setting that allows the user to log in; Requested indicates first request to become a member|
|Comments||checked, unchecked||Member can leave comments|
|Blogging||checked, unchecked||Member can create blog and blog entries|
|Articles||checked, unchecked||Member can create content, subject to Role|
|Un-moderated||checked, unchecked||member can publish content without authorization|
Here are descriptions of the roles available (from lowest to highest rank). Each rank has all permissions of previous rank. All activities subject to above authorizations.
|Member||can log in; can add comments if authorized|
|Contributor||limited posting - to own documents and blogs, and where designated collaborator|
|Author||can add library records, upload files, and add widget code|
|Moderator||can authorize publish requests|
|Editor||can authorize publish requests and modify any content|
|Administrator||can edit, and manage membership approvals; can bulk upload to directories|
|Governor||can promote members to Administrator|
|Webmaster||can promote members to Governor and Webmaster; can manage system settings|
Authorized members will see an Approvals menu in the right sidebar, consisting of four options: articles, comments, pictures, memberships. These choices take the user to the respective lists, constrained by the requested properties of these lists.
To approve or decline requests, the administrator can hold the Ctrl key when selecting an item to process, which will cause it to open in a separate window or browser tab.
Note that members who have approval authority also have authority to leave Moderator Notes in the notes tab of processed content records, to give requesting members feedback.
