What is the Admin Roles Page?
The Admin Roles page allow you to assign specific roles to people that you’d like to give app editing access to. Each role has set permissions, so you have control over how much access and editing power each user has depending on the role assigned to them.
Note: if you would like to restrict certain plugins in your app to specific app users, you can do that through User Tags in our Security Tab Access Settings. If you would like to learn more about this feature, you can do so here:

How to access the Admin Roles Page:
Simply go to User >> Admin Roles
What are the Admin Roles and Permission Types?
We’ll be releasing more roles over time as they are requested, but currently, the roles are as follows:
- App Admin: These users will have full access to app including user management
- App Owner: These users will have access to everything except user management
- App Editor: These users can only add and edit content, but cannot publish and cannot access user management.
How do you define Admin Roles in the App Dashboard?
Now that you know what our different Admin Roles are, let’s go over how you can create or adjust your user’s roles in the app dashboard.
Step 1: Click “+ Add User” in the Admin Roles tab
Once you’re at the Admin Roles tab click on the “+ Add User” button to add a new user.
Step 2: Fill out the user’s email address
Once the “New User” window is open, type in the email address that the user wants to log-in with. If they're already registered in our system, you don’t have to enter their name as those will automatically be filled in.
Step 3: Enter in the user’s first and last name
If the user hasn’t already been registered in our system, then you will need to fill out their first and last name in the “First Name” and “Last Name” fields.
Step 4: Select the Admin Role that you want to assign to the user
After you’ve entered in the user’s email address and name, choose the Admin Role that you want to assign to them from the “Role” drop down menu.
Step 5: Click “Invite”
Once you have filled out the user’s information and assigned them a role, click the “Invite” button. Their role will be set, and an invitation email will be sent to the email address that you entered in for that user.
If you would like to change a user’s Admin Role, you can do so by selecting another role from the drop-down menu next to that user:
If you would like to remove a user from your app, simply click on the “X” next to that user.
You will be asked to verify that you do indeed want to remove that user before the user is removed from your app.
