Roles represent a collection of users that are assigned permissions by an administrator to perform similar actions or functions. A user can belong to one or more roles. If a user is a member of more than one role their access permissions are merged.
In addition to the built-in roles of Admin, Editor and View-Only that come with Klipfolio, you can create your own custom roles. It is recommended that you use the built-in roles when you set up permissions because it simplifies the process of deployment.
If you assign a user Administrator rights, remember they will have access to all information associated with your account as they are not governed by any group access rights.
Important: Both role and group access rights affect a user's permissions. For example, if a user is assigned the editor role and is a member of a group with use only rights to a specific Klip, the user will be unable to edit the Klip even though they have editor permissions.
