Roles & Permissions

Roles and permissions are totally up to you. Create your own roles and assign over 100 different permission levels to each role.

Setting Up Roles

iScout starts you off with 3 standard roles - Employee, Manager, and Admin. From there you can create, rename, or delete roles as much as you want. Each employee profile is assigned to one role which determines their access in the iScout system.

Permissions

For each role, you determine which data points a person can create, view, edit, or delete from the system. By default, the Employee role can fill out reports and do training and that's about it. The Admin, however, can edit everything in the system.

Permission Types

There are many, many types of permissions that can be granted (or denied) in iScout. To give you a feel, here are a few examples:

  • View an Employee's Profile - can be set to "only view yourself", "only from your project", etc
  • Specific Profile Information - each item in a profile can be hidden or locked from editing
  • Create Employee Profiles - allow certain roles to create profiles and limit which roles they can assign
  • Training - determine who can mark training complete, conduct group trainings, run training reports, etc
  • Forms - determine who can create/edit forms, who can fill out reports, who can view/edit reports
  • Equipment - determine who can see assets, status reports, and who can edit or inspect them
  • Acknowledgments - determine who can send acknowledgments or run status reports
  • Resources - determine who can upload and share resources and who can view each resource tag
  • Control Panel - determine who can make system changes or run dataload files
  • Roles & Permissions - determine who create and edit the roles in your system

Limited Permissions

In the simplest case, you'd fully grant or fully deny access. For example, you might allow supervisors to view all Near Miss Reports in the entire system. That's easy.

In some cases you may want a role to only access certain form responses - definitely not all of them. For example, you want Field Techs to see any Near Miss Reports from their own project, but not other projects. No problem - you can create complex, limited permissions that are based on the employee's profile information (in this case, Project).
