Custom User Access Levels

You can create your own custom access levels and add members to these new access groups once they are created.

The new training video hasn’t been created yet for this feature.

  • If you haven't already done so, Log in to your website and go to the Dashboard. You will be taken to the Site Content tab.
  • Select the User Admin tab then select User Access Groups from the left navigation bar.
  • Listed in the User access groups index will be the three default access groups: Member, Publisher, and Site Admin. By selecting the name of each access group you can see what access each group has. A Site Admin has access to everything. The access they have will be displayed in green. You will notice a Publisher has limited access. A Member has no dashboard access. They only have access to view content created for members when logged in. 
  • To create a new access group select the Add User Group button.
  • Enter a Name for your new access group then select the checkboxes for each category of access you want for your new group. 
  • When finished, select the Save button. The new access group will be displayed on the index page showing each access category you selected in green. 
  • Select the User Profiles folder in the left navigation bar.
  • To Add a new user, see the Users training video for further instructions if needed. 
  • Select a user account by selecting the Edit link.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and select the checkbox next to the new Custom Access Group. Each user needs to have a round button for an access group of Member or higher selected. Then you can select a checkbox for the Custom Access Groups. 
  • The most common custom access level will be an access group set to Member with a custom access group added giving a member more rights than just a member but not as much as a publisher. The second would be default access set to Publisher and a custom access group where a user doesn't need full site admin rights but just a few. 
  • Select Save.
