Admin user permissions

Each admin user in your database has permission settings that determine which features or actions they're permitted to complete per CampSite module. To manage a user's permissions, expand the Admin user's account settings and navigate to the "Permissions" section.

  • By default, a new admin user has no permissions when they're first created (unless a User Template was selected when creating their account). Reference the details below to grant them permission as needed.

User Permission Settings

To access a user's permission settings, double click the 3 dots to expand the user's account settings and then navigate to the "Permissions" section. 

Permissions are categorized by the modules included in your CampSite subscription. Click a module to expand the permission settings therein.

Enabling Modules

First and foremost, a module must be enabled for the user.

To allow a user to access to a certain module, expand the  module permissions and click "Enable module for this user." The user will now have read-only access to the information within that module.  

To extend their access beyond "read-only", select to grant the user additional permissions.

Adding Permissions

The permissions available for each module will be listed beneath "Enable module for this user."  Check-mark any/all checkboxes for the permissions that should be granted to the user. 

When you're finished selecting permissions, click "Save changes for this user." If you do not click "Save changes for this user", your changes will be saved.

Permission Details

For  details on the permission settings for a specific CampSite module, select the module from the list below.

If your database is part of a Camp Group, you can read more on applying permissions for unified admin users here.

DB Management Permissions

  • Admin: Allows the user to access the DB Management tab of the Admin page (and all the high-level settings therein - e.g. managing other users; completing the Rollover Wizard; editing your Parent Dashboard theme; etc.) This permission should only be granted to the most trusted users.
  • Reports: Automatically grants the user "Admin"-level permission to all existing and future saved reports (which allows the user to delete or edit any saved report in the database as needed).
    • When a user has Reports permission, they will not appear in the "Permissions" modals on the Advanced Reports page, which means their permissions to individual reports cannot be downgraded or revoked.
    • If the Reports permission is removed from a user, the user will be downgraded to "Read" only permissions to all existing reports, and their permissions to individual reports can be edited via the Advanced Reports page.
