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