Roles in the Portal

Overview

Field2Base Users with the Mobile Forms Administrator role can manage User Roles and Permissions from the Portal. This allows the Field2Base Administrators(s) for your Company to determine which Users have access to specific features in the Portal.
Note: Users who only use the Mobile Forms app and do not log in to the Portal do not need any Role.

To access your Company's Roles, navigate to Admin > Roles.


Roles Page

The Roles page lists all available User Roles for your Company and a brief description of each. The default system Roles available are determined by which features your Company has enabled.

Viewing Role Details

You can view which specific permissions are part of a Role by clicking on the View button next to that Role.



Managing Roles for Your Users

You can view or edit the Users with a specific Role by clicking on the Users button next to that Role.

To Add a User to a Role

1. Select the User from the Select a user drop-down.
2. Click on the Add button to add the selected User to the Role.

To Remove a User From a Role

Check the User(s) that you want to remove from the Role and click on the Remove button.

 
Note: You can also edit a specific User's Role(s) in their individual User Profile by navigating to Admin > Users and clicking on the Edit button for that User.

System Roles

System Roles are preset, static Roles that cannot be edited. They come standard with any Field2Base Company and provide sets of permissions. The list of System Roles and Permissions available to you depend on the features enabled for your company.
Note: Users who only need to use the Mobile Forms app on a device and will never need to access the Portal do not need any User Role.
