Roles and Permissions
Within the Jvillage content management system (CMS), registered users can be assigned one or more Roles. Each Role defines a set of permissions for a user. These permissions range from very broad powers (and responsibilities) for setting up and configuring the website, to very limited, as the ability to update one’s own blog entries or access certain pages on the website. What follows is a general description of the default roles set up on your Jvillage 2.0 website.
They are somewhat hierarchical, but not entirely. That is, each role is not simply a subset of the role above it in this list. More information about roles and permissions will be covered by your Project Manager as part of training, and a certain amount of fine tuning may be necessary for your organization.
Site Administrator Highest level of access & permissions. Can create, publish/unpublish, edit and delete content, pages, forms, user profiles, create and edit menus, and make certain structural changes to the website. Site administrators can log in as other users, set user permissions, and administer many aspects of ecommerce and transaction processing, view reports. We recommend that this role only be assigned to a single, trusted user.
Site content publisher Can create, publish or unpublish, edit, and delete pages, add content pages and forms, and place pages into menus. Cannot administer users or ecommerce, and has limited ability to change the structure of the website. Recommended for trusted users who routinely maintain your website.
Site content creator Can create and edit content, but not delete it or publish it to the website. Cannot administer ecommerce functions or change site structure. Typically, the lowest level of site management staff, or volunteers associated with committees, clubs, etc.
Site ecommerce administrator can administer orders, payments, forms, catalog items, download & view ecommerce reports. Should be a very limited group of trusted users. This role typically falls to the bookkeeper or financial assistant/administrator.
Site webform administrator Can create, modify, administer and delete forms, access form submissions, download form data, work with form macros (for calculations, etc.).
Site blogger Lowest level of administrative access. Can create and administer own blog entries.
