Click on the plus button next to the Role column header in the People configuration page
A Role determines what permissions a person has within Tracertrak. These permissions determine what parts of Tracertrak can be accessed, ensuring there is adequate restrictions around who can manage and view what within your Tracertrak account. Tracertrak comes with a set of default roles that can be edited and renamed as desired.
From the Configure > People menu, click the button found next to the Role column header. If there is not a role column header, the page is displayed by Role. Click on the Name option in the "Show by" configuration in the top right to display people by Name. Similar Add buttons can be found on other configuration pages next to other column headers, allowing the creation of items such as People and Profiles.
Enter a name for the role. The name should reflect the role that is being created and the intended permissions that will be given to the role.
Click the selection box next to each permission that is to be given to the role being created. The specific permissions given for each permission option are outlined below.
Click on Save when the desired permissions have been selected.
Once you have created your role, you can assign the role to the people who the role was created for.
