Overview of roles & rights in Purple Manager
The Purple Manager comes with various key roles, which should suit for your needs in a publishing house.
Roles and Rights in Purple Manager
In this role, a user can manage all publications assigned to him/her, e.g. create new issues or publish issues in the Live App.
In Purple Manager → Teams → Members → Roles, an Account admin can specify whether the user is allowed to
- manage a selection of publications (“Yes (selection)"), or
- is not an editor (“No”), or
- whether he or she is allowed to manage all publications (“All publications”).
The permissions of this role are focussed on all tasks that serve to configure and build apps. As App Admin, the user is allowed to edit apps, which means they can edit all tabs of the 'App Tab Control', including sharing, subscriptions, etc. In this role, a user can also manage all apps assigned to them, e.g. they can send push messages or create new publications.
In Purple Manager → Teams → Members → Roles, an Account admin can specify whether the App Admin is allowed to
- manage a selection of apps (“Yes (selection)”),
- whether he is not an app admin (“No”), or
- whether he is allowed to manage all apps (“All apps”).
The role of an Account Admin contains all capabilities that an App Manager and an Editor have, which means it give the user the most extensive rights. He has the ability to create new apps, invite other members and make changes to the rights of other team members. This role also includes all the rights of App Admin and Editor.
As the menu items in the Purple Manager sidebar are not connected to apps or publications, only Account Admins have access to these settings. Similarly, only account admins can manage team settings, including inviting new users to the team and granting them permissions to manage apps and publications.
