Understanding user roles and associated permissions

User roles and permissions

There are two types of users you can create in Lingpad:

  1. Admins: Admins have full rights to the organisation and complete access to all spaces and projects.
  2. Managers: Managers have partial rights to make changes to the spaces and projects they've been given access to.

Here is the comprehensive list of permissions each user role is granted within Lingpad:

To invite new users, select the organisation you would like to invite them to. Next, select Users from the left menu and click on the Add New User button located at your screen's bottom right.


Changing user roles

To change a user's role, click on the three-dot menu on the extreme right of the row containing the user's name and select Edit User. Choose the role you would like to assign and then click Save. Alternatively, you may choose to remove access completely by selecting Remove Access from the top right corner of the window. 

If a user is assigned the Manager role, please select which spaces they should be granted access to.
