Roles and what they are used for

In most cases, not all users should have full access rights to all parts of a program. Roles allow you to restrict the access rights of users and to specify exactly which role has access to which part of the software. 


Create a role

You create a new role in Lumiform Desktop by clicking on the tab Administration → Roles and then on the button "+ Add role". 

Next, give the role a unique name, e.g. "Regional Manager" and select the permissions that this role should have. With a click on "Create role" you have created a new role.
