  • Editor: The editor role gives a user access to edit studies.  If a user is not in the editor role, they will have view-only access to all study data regardless of the level of access that is given by an authorization at the facility or folder levels. The editor role is the most common role and should be assigned to any users who are planning to perform work on the Kenexis Integrated Safety Suite.
  • No Roles Assigned: If a user is not placed into the administrator or editor roles, they will have the lowest level of access.  They will be able to log into the Kenexis Integrated Safety Suite, view any data that they have been authorized to view but have no access to create, modify, or delete any data.

User roles are assigned from the “Users” tab of the “Manage Organization Settings” window.  The organization settings window can be accessed from the administrator icon located in the main action ribbon of the project manager view.  The administrator icon will only be visible when logged in as an administrator for your organization.

From the user list you can view a user’s details by clicking on the username.  Under the user details you can assign roles by checking the administrator or editor check boxes.
