User Access and Roles
TeamDesk allows you to share your database with others. It’s likely that each added user requires different access to information. By creating roles and configuring permissions, you can easily control what users can view or do with your online database.
When you share your database, you need to assign a role to each user.
A role defines the level of access a user has to information in a database. TeamDesk enables you to create an unlimited number of user roles and specify different access rights for each role.
When you create a new database, there is a standard set of user roles in the system (a new database built from scratch has only one user role - Default Role). You can either edit the existing roles or create new ones and assign these roles to users you want to add to your database.
Sometimes, you may need to check the user access settings for any role you created. If you are a database owner or a user with the
Full Access or
Manage Users Setup Permission, you can change your own role easily. Just click the profile name in the upper right-hand corner, select the
Change Role option listed in the dropdown, and choose the role you need.
