The Web CMS has 3 primary roles:

  • Group Member
  • Group Publisher
  • Group Admin

Users may belong to one or more Groups, and one or more roles within a group. 

Permissions by Role

Warning
title*IMPORTANT*

The Group Admin role should be reserved for regular faculty and staff employees of the university. Do not give Group Admin roles to any user who is not faculty or staff, since that user will then have complete control over the group site, including the ability to remove all other users (such as other Group Admins).
