All users in the system must be assigned a role, which dictates what actions the user can perform. The three roles, along with a description of each, are as follows:
- User -This is the least powerful role, and allows a user permission only to take surveys.
- Create - In addition to allowing a user to take surveys, this role allows a user to create, deploy, and manage surveys. A user with the Create permission may only view surveys they own (as indicated in the Owners field of the Survey Options page).
- Admin - A user with this role has the same right as a user with Create permission, with the added benefit that they have full access to all surveys in the system. In addition, users with Admin permission can manage user accounts, as well as set the security level for all users.
- User Management - This role cannot modify surveys, but has Admin level user management authorization (importing/exporting/modifying users and user groups).
Users in the system can be managed by anyone who has "Admin" permissions. All users can update and modify their own user information, but cannot set their own security level.
All users in the system must have a unique username. Note that usernames are not case-sensitive.
