Roles and Privileges Overview

Features, permissions, and tools for users based on role

User permissions and activities are governed by the user's assigned role(s). Roles are managed from the Manage Users screen (Program -> People -> Manage Users) in the MGC Web Portal. All users have full access to all features in the MGC Mobile App.

Only Administrators may edit a user's roles. To edit a user's roles, select the user on the Manage User's screen and open the Edit User window. Users may have multiple roles, which can be selected from the Roles dropdown menu.

These features are only available for Enterprise subscription users.
