User Types controls the tasks Users and Groups are allowed to perform globally. Lets review these as they pertain to privacy types across MindTouch.
- Understand the different User Types and Pro Member Roles
- Configure and assign user roles to control access permissions to content in your MindTouch site.
- Pages: 3
Can Community Members ever perform Pro Member Roles?
No. If the user is configured as a Community Member in the control panel, that user will never be able to do more than view and rate pages or leave comments.
- If you need Community Members to create or edit pages (especially in internal-only sections in MindTouch), you have to reassign them as Pro Members.
How do global Group roles affect global User roles?
Global roles can be applied to either a user or a group via the control panel. If a user is a part of a group, MindTouch grants the higher of the two roles across the entire site. See the following examples below:
Setting site-wide roles is only possible via the control panel. If a user is granted a role at a page level, that role applies to that page only. For more details on the various levels of site privacy, please see our documentation on understanding site privacy in MindTouch.
