What are Business Roles?
Business roles are the default way in which users can access and edit data in Arbor. The business role controls what they get access to first and foremost. Every staff member must be given a Business Role to be able to log in to Arbor.
Each business role on Arbor comes with a set of permissions for the most common tasks done by that role.
Wherever possible, permission assignments should come from a business role at the school.
What are Permissions?
Every function or task within Arbor has permissions associated with it, and it's possible to be given the ability to view or administer depending on the specific task required.
It is possible to give temporary or permanent (Ad-hoc) permissions or roles to an Arbor user in the event of them needing to do something that is not included in their standard role.
