Adding a Role

The database templates in ActivityInfo come with some predefined Roles. The predefined Roles define the type of Permissions a user will have to the Database/Folder/Form, they have been added to. You might want to add new Roles to better meet your needs.

You can add a new Role by duplicating an existing Role, renaming it and then changing the Permissions that correspond to it. Make sure you are using the template that includes Roles' setups which match your needs.

Take a look at the available Templates and Roles. For example, if you want users to be able to view records that belong only to their partner organization you would need to use the "Multi-partner reporting" template which comes with the customizable Role of "Reporting partner" which gives you this functionality. Such a functionality is not available in the customizable Roles that come with the Blank Database template.
