When applying a role in the Control Panel, you have the option to set the role both for a user as well as a group. If a user is a part of a group, MindTouch will grant the user the highest of the two roles across the entire site. See the following examples below:
|User Role||Group Role||Resulting Site-Wide Role|
Important: Setting site-wide roles is possible only within the Control Panel. If a user is granted a role at a page level, that affects that page only. For more details on understanding the various levels of site privacy, please see our documentation on understanding privacy in MindTouch.
