Change the role of a user in Purple Hub
In this article, you will learn how to assign a role to a user in Purple Hub. By default, Purple assigns new users the 'Purple Editor' role which will need to be changed, depending on the user's responsibilities and scope of work. To ensure at least one user has extended permissions for manipulating content in the Hub, you will need to assign at least one user to the Purple Managing Editor role.
- Have 'Administrator' role in Purple Hub
- Have 'Account Admin' role in Purple Manager
- Have the user, for whom you want to change the role, invited to your team in Purple Manager with the right of 'App Admin' and 'Editor' as described in this article
- The new user has logged in already to the Purple Hub (per default, the assigned role is 'Purple Editor')
- Create a URL and have it by hand, made of your Hub Domain + Hub name and add /wp-admin/users.php using this scheme <Your-Hub-Domain/hubname>/wp-admin/users.php e.g. https://c02.purpledshub.com/purple-documentation/wp-admin/users.php
