This article is designed to help you differentiate the three types of Roles in InformationLeader.
- User Group
The ‘User Group’ role type allows for various users to be grouped together. There are no permissions associated with this role type and is mainly used if users from different parts of the business need to receive the same email notifications, requests etc.
The ‘Permissions’ role type is used to set similar permissions for users from different parts of the business. This role type cannot be used as a recipient for email behaviours, notifications etc.
The ‘General’ role type is a combination of both ‘User Group’ and ‘Permission’ role types. This can be used to set permissions as well as supporting the ability to be used as a recipient for automation behaviours and requests.
