Roles and access rights FAQ

Updated 3 months ago by Leigh Hutchens

Q: What is the purpose of inherited group members and them being visible in all underlying units?

A: The purpose of inherited members is to give the person access to everything below where he/she is added. So if a person is added as for example a District Manager on a District he/she will be an inherited member of all units and sections below that. The District Manager role will be inherited down so that he/she have the same access on all groups. In order for a user with a manager role to be visible in the schedule and be scheduled, they also need an employee role.
