All openbadges.me users have a specific user role that controls what that user is able to do within openbadges.me.
With the Starter version of openbadges.me you will have a single Administrator account, however, once you upgrade you will be able to set up users with one of the default roles or create your own custom roles. Only organisations on subscription plans ('Teams', 'Embrace', 'Enterprise') have the ability to create and assign custom roles.
There are a collection of predefined roles within openbadges.me: 'System Administrator', 'Badge Creator', 'Badge issuer' and 'User'.
This role is able to access all system functions and when you first register with openbadges.me your account will automatically be set up as the administrator.
This role assigns a user admin rights to create badge graphics and define badges, setting the criteria and issuer of the badge. A Badge Creator is not be able to issue badges, view dashboards or reports.
This role gives a user admin rights to issue badges, view dashboards and reports.
Users are the recipients of the badges you issue. They will have their own openbadges.me badge backpack.
In addition to the openbadges.me default roles, you are able to create custom roles for your organisation. With these roles you can define your own role names and define exactly what system features each role is able to access.
Users are able to have multiple roles and can switch between roles by selecting the role on the top right menu.
