Roles are designed to help you easily manage different types of users and what activities those users can and cannot do on Flight Schedule Pro.
Roles are Flexible: Since there are a wide-range of permissions on Flight Schedule Pro to choose from, you can customize user-access the way you want; instead of forcing users into predefined user-levels and potentially giving them too much or not enough access.
Roles help you setup new users quickly: Roles make it easy to setup permissions for new users. When you add or approve new users you can assign them to a role which gives them that role's permissions and preferences.
Roles make it easy to change rights for multiple users at once: Editing a role allows you to change permissions for many users all at once. Changes you make to a role will be applied to every user assigned to that role (accept for permissions that have been overridden on a per-user-basis).
Permissions and Preferences
A role is made up of permissions and preferences. An example of a role permission is "Users assigned to this role can make reservations." An example of a role preference is "Users assigned to this role can make a total of 5 reservations." The role's permissions and preferences determine what users assigned to that role can do on Flight Schedule Pro.
We have already added a few pre-configured roles for you. The Administrator role automatically receives all permissions, however you can edit it's preferences. We recommend that you start by editing and reviewing your existing roles by editing and reviewing your existing roles, however, if you'd like you can also add new roles.
Assigning Users to Roles
Once you have your roles setup, you can start assigning users to roles. Users can be assigned to multiple roles. If necessary, you can also override permissions on a per user basis.
