User Roles and Permissions
You may not want every user to have unrestricted access to Compass. Compass user roles give you full control over how the system is used - deciding exactly who will have access to what.
User roles explained.
User roles are permissions assigned to one or more users that determine what they can do in Compass. Through a series of checkboxes, you can quickly specify how users will be allowed to interact with Compass. A straight-forward layout and familiar color coding make user roles easy to interpret at a glance.
When you deploy a site with Compass, we work with you to define an initial set of user roles based on how your organization will use Compass. Should you need to, you are then free to add or modify user roles going forward.
Sample use cases.
- Prevent staff from changing permissions or other user accounts.
- Give your PR person full control over adding and editing press releases on the site - but nothing else.
- Allow certain staff members to create draft content items, but not the ability to make content live on the website.
- Prohibit a contributor from deleting any content items.
- Allow editors to make edits to draft content only
