Roles are groups of application permissions and data profiles that may be applied to users. Default roles are provided in the application that may be used to quickly apply permissions to users. However, you may define additional roles, and/or add data profiles to individual permissions within roles as needed. One or more roles must be selected when creating users in the application.
Permissions available through the Role include all tasks that may be performed within the system. This includes scheduling resources, editing and viewing data, and performing administrative duties and overrides. Additionally, certain permissions, once selected, may be further defined by specifying the data to which the permission applies. By default a permission applies to all data of its type in the system unless limited through the application of a profile.
