User roles and permissions

In the scope of the application, every user is assigned a role that determines what application resources the user can access, and the permissions allowed on those resources. By default, your Aidematic application has three user roles:


An Administrator has full access and is granted permission to all the resources in the application. The main purpose of the role is to define the administrative processes in the application such as user management, custom fields, organizational and portal-level settings, etc.


A Contributor has limited access and is granted permissions for handling file manager, competencies, and job analysis sessions but cannot perform other administrative functions. The main purpose of this role is to contribute to the creation, manipulation, and distribution of different resources in the application such as job profiles, duties, tasks, media files, etc.


A Viewer has access to the viewer-end of job profiles and surveys that are made available to them by contributors and administrators of their portal. They can view the different aspects of a job profile under analysis, playback attached media files, respond to surveys as well as participate in the discussion board. They cannot, however, manipulate, update, or participate in other resources of the application.

See the following chart to assess roles and their permissions on different resources:
