Need more granularity in user roles and permissions
Gordon McBean
- Close

 The current model of users/members is not sufficient. The skill level of users varies greatly and allowing newbies full access to sites that we have spent hundreds of hours creating makes me nervous.  I would like to at least see three or four default roles, but also allowing the site administrator to create new roles with less or more permissions.  Then, the administrator can assign each site member to that role. 

 

A previous post suggested the following switches that the admin could apply customto rolls:

  •  Allow editing and adding content: Y/N
  • Allow editing and adding their own family connections: Y/N
  • Allow editing their own information only: Y/N
  • Allow them to make suggested changes: Y/N
  • Allow them to create posts, polls, and messages and send them: Y/
  • The default would be they are allowed to visit and view the information on the site with no editing or adding anything.
 The "Allow them to make suggested changes: Y/N" would be a temporary change that would have to be approved by anyone who has top level access (webmaster or higher level)
 
If they are updating entered information it would notify the admin that they want to make a change, do you want to allow it.

The suggestions are good. So is Myheritage doing anything to help us surmount this problem? Do the upgraded versions have these options - since I am using the free version?

Hi Gordon, 

Thanks so much for contacting us with your feedback. 

Your descriptive suggestions are very helpful because we are always looking to better our product.  

We have recieved several requests to allow the suggested switches that you have posted.  

In the future there will be a feature called "Two Way Sync" for our family tree builder program, this willl allow editing and adding content changes.  Ultimately we would like to allow our users to "track" the changes they make to their tree by setting the preferences.  We will keep everyone updated on this change. 

 

Best Regards

Rafael
