Change a User’s Level of Access

Different roles give users different levels of access within a project. Roles include: Owner, Administrator, Manager, General User, Limited User, and Viewer.

If you’re the Owner or Administrator of your account, you’re able to control which people have which roles in your account. Here’s what each of those roles can do:

  • Owner: Add, remove, or change the permission level of any user. Create, add to, and edit maps.
  • Administrator: Add, remove, or change the permission level of any user except Owners. Create, add to, and edit maps.
  • Manager: Add users to projects, but cannot remove or change their roles. Create, add to, and edit maps. 
  • General User: Create, add to, and edit maps.
  • Limited User: Add to the map and edit your own content. Cannot edit content added by others.
  • Viewer: View the map and leave comments.

Here’s what you do to change someone’s account-level role:

  1. From your Account Homepage, click on the Unearth Logo.level of access 1
