Roles

Roles are assigned to web and device users throughout Field View to determine what they have permissions to do within the web application and on devices.

People are assigned roles with permissions in business units and projects, and within those, permissions for working with forms, tasks, workflows, trades, causes, assets, locations, processes, drawings (geometry), packages, reports, and etc.

High-level Administrator roles should not be allocated to people in organizations outside your business unit. Once a person has been given a role in a business unit, he or she should not be given a role with fewer rights in a project or a child business unit belonging to that business unit. You can, however, give that person a role with more rights in a project or child business unit as needed.

There are many default System Roles that you can assign to users. You can also add roles as needed. You can also make specific roles inactive within a business unit.

The table describes the default System Roles. For a more specific view into the permissions given to each role in a business unit, navigate to Business Setup > Security > Roles. Click a role in the Roles pane, and the permissions display in folders in the left pane. Expand the folders to see the specific system permissions.
