In Pulse there are two main sets of roles:
- Organizational roles
- Stream roles
Organizational roles regulate what a user can or can't control in the organization workspace. Stream roles regulate what a user can or can't do within a stream.
The two are completely independent and live on two different planes.
Organizational roles give you control over your organizational workspace. In Pulse, there are three types of organizational roles:
Owners can control and execute any possible operation on the admin side including access to the billing system. This is best used for executives or IT who may need to stay in control of everything.
Admins, like owners, can control everything on the admin side except the billing panel. This is best used for team leaders and high-end operators who need to tweak the workspace settings in order to make their teams or departments more productive.
Users don't have access to any of the organization settings. This is best used for regular employees who need to stay aligned on key changes across the organization and write updates.
Stream roles give you control over streams. There are four types of stream roles:
1. Stream Owners
Stream owners can:
- Do everything managers can do
- Archive streams
- Delete streams
2. Stream Managers
Stream managers can:
- Share new pulses in the stream
- Share new posts in the stream
- Add users as contributors to the stream
- Edit basic stream settings
3. Stream Contributors
- Share updates in the streams
4. Streams Followers
Followers of streams don't have any kind of special permission. By following the stream they're simply interested in getting updates in their feed and/or via notifications.
