e360 ChMS - Permissions and Roles


You can allow certain people access to certain parts of the application. This is accomplished using Roles. Roles are groupings of permissions - allowances to do or view certain actions of parts of the application. These roles are assigned to members. For instance, it is possible to only let someone view members' data, not edit it, and enter attendance.

This allows more people to be involved in the managing of the church's information BUT only within the areas assigned to them.

An admin has all rights and permissions cannot be edited. 
1. Select permissions on the side bar, and click on "Roles".
