Managing Administrator Roles and Permissions
UNIWeb administrators are differentiated from general UNIWeb members because they can perform certain tasks within UNIWeb that general users cannot, or would not need to. The ability to perform a particular administrative task is called a permission.
Not every UNIWeb administrator will need access to every permission across the entire UNIWeb network. Generally, a small number of users will need to have a particular set of permissions to perform administrative tasks within their academic unit. Accordingly, UNIWeb delegates administrator permissions through the creation of administrator roles, groupings of permissions that are restricted to a particular academic unit and its sub-units. Roles can be assigned, modified, and removed from multiple UNIWeb members at once.
For example, a department of health sciences may have 3 faculty members that are dedicated to performing administrative tasks within the health sciences academic unit. These three administrators could be assigned a single role that looks like this:
As the role in the example above applies only to the Health Sciences academic unit, the administrators who have been assigned the role above would only be able to perform those tasks within the Health Sciences academic unit and its sub-units. If the role above is modified - if permissions are added or removed - those modifications would be applied to all three administrator accounts at the same time.
When your institution sets up their network, the Proximify team will create your first administrator accounts. As an administrator, it is your responsibility to create and assign roles to future users.
