User Permissions and Privileges · Administrators and Platform Users

The Platform allows two basic types of users — Administrators and Platform Users

Administrators, by default, have full edit access to all areas of the Contify Platform — Newsfeed, Dashboards, Taxonomy Builder, Sourcing Manager, Account Management, and User Analytics, with unrestricted privileges to add new items and make modifications.

Administrators may also add new users, grant or revoke access to specific Dashboards (and their Workspaces), Content Editing/Curation Privileges, Platform areas (Taxonomy Builder, Newsletter Manager) and make them new Administrators.

On the other hand, Platform Users, by default are restricted to read-only access to the Newsfeed with the ability to create Personalised Views, set Saved Searches and Alerts. Platform users also have view-only access to the Taxonomy Builder.

Manage permissions

In addition to the above standard set of permissions and privileges, Admin users can manage permissions for individual users.

To manage a userʼs access to the various modules of the platform, head over to Account Management from the hamburger menu on the top-right corner of the navigation bar.

From your list of users, click on the individual youʼd like to manage, and use the checkboxes to grant or revoke access to the platform areas.
