Permissions can be copied from a User or Role Models and applied to as many other users within the system as you would like. Both Active and Inactive Users can be selected at the same time.
From the Manage Users main screen, choose the Copy Permissions button, and select the User or Role Model to copy permissions from on the left. Select an option from the drop-down list and apply to the User(s) checked on the right. You can still give users additional permissions as well. This is perfect for when you're replacing a user in UCM, if their replacement gets the same permissions or if you have a Role Model user who should have the permissions of that role model but a few tweaks.
- Remember, when you update or change a role model, it cascades to all users with that role model!
When selecting Role Models, select the role model whose permissions you are copying to other users.
Assigning Role Models to a Group of Users
In the example above, permissions are being copied from Matthew Robinson and applied to Betty, Mike, Roger and a Test User for some reason.
Administrators also have the capability of selecting a Role Model that they would like to assign to one or more Full-Access, Read-Only, or Template-Only users.
Select a pre-defined Role Model from the drop-down list. Next, select the user(s) from the grid who you want to add this Role Model.
When you click on Copy permissions, the Role Models are assigned to the selected User(s).
Another option is that you can choose “None” as a Role Model, which removes a Role Model from the selected users.
