- What are Roles?
- A Role is a set of responsibilities assigned to a User that allows him or her to accomplish a set of specific Tasks
- Why use the Concept?
- Roles permit an Interactive Site to group privileges and authorities to a set of Users who, in turn, can complete Chapter assigned tasks.
- How is the concept implemented?
- Each User is defined to one or more Roles in his or her User definition. The Administrator Role is always defined as a User responsible for managing ALL aspects of the Site. Other Roles are defined as required by the Client (Referee, Assignor, Instructor, Officer, Assessor, Client/Organization, etc.)
Each Role your Chapter implements on the Site should reflect how you expect your Users to interact with and complete your Chapter's objectives. For example, besides the Administrator, almost every Site includes at least the Referee and Assignor Role.
We recommend naming each Role with a short, easy-to-identify noun, for example: Assessor, Instructor, Officer, etc. The names, of course, can vary from Site to Site.
See Manual: Construction-Defining Segments for a typical list of Segments associated with Roles.
