Limited Access Users

Limited Access Users are individuals that can login as an Administrator, but only have limited access to the areas of the website to which you grant them access.

For example, you may have your website setup so each team has their own department or sub-department. You can give the Team Manager or Coach access to that specific department or sub-department so he/she can login and update articles, a photo gallery, or a calendar.

NOTE: Only Full Access Users can give others access to the site. Please follow these steps:

Step 1: Login to your website and open the User Administration dashboard.

Step 2: Select the Add New Role button.

Step 3: Create a New Blank Role.

Step 4:  Check off the following permissions under the WebWriter section: "Manage" and "View". Also, under Site Map, check off "limited access". Click Save.

Step 5: Once the role has been created under User Administration, add users to this new role by filling out their name and email address. Note: the admin will then receive an email that they've been granted limited admin persmissions to your site.

Step 6: Navigate to the Site Map to add the user(s) to the departments/sub-departments you want them to have access to: hover over the Department/Sub-department, click the blue edit button, click Department Managers and then check the name of the limited access user that you want to grant administrative permissions to that department.
