Roles and Permissions
Each user on the Forerunner platform is assigned a role and each role, in turn, is assigned a set of permissions. An account’s
Manager users can assign a user’s role when creating a new user, and can modify user roles at any time thereafter.
All Forerunner accounts include the following role options:
- Manager: full product functionality and can invite/modify users
- Member: full product functionality but cannot invite/modify users
- Creator: full product functionality, cannot invite/modify users and cannot delete data
- View Only: limited product functionality and cannot invite/modify users
You can review each role in detail, and compare roles to one another, in the following table:
