Limited Access User permissions are designed to grant specific members the ability to view and interact with certain parts of an app without granting full admin rights. This can be useful for members who only need access to a few functionalities.
How to Add Limited Access Users for Apps
You must be an admin to add and manage users.
- Navigate to My Organization > Users.
- Click on Add/Update User.
For new users, fill out the user's profile information, such as name, email, and phone number.
- Assign the User Role as 'Limited Access'.
- Under User Permissions
- Select the appropriate location associated with the App.
- Grant access to the necessary apps.
Limited Access Users need both location and app permissions to function properly. Ensure you grant both permissions for the user to have a seamless experience.
Capabilities of Limited Access Users
Once set up, here's what a Limited Access User will be able to do and see:
Access to Apps
Single App: Users are seamlessly logged into their church's App when they select 'Apps' from the Global Menu and are taken to their Apps Dashboard.
Multiple Apps: They'll see a loading screen, then a modal displaying a list of all accessible Apps. They can then select an app to navigate to its dashboard.
- No Access: If a user's location isn't set for an App-affiliated location, they'll see a modal explaining the lack of access and the option to request access. We'll dive into this more below.
- Single App: Users are seamlessly logged into their church's App when they select 'Apps' from the Global Menu and are taken to their Apps Dashboard.
Global Menu: Upon pressing the Global Settings Menu button in Apps, Limited Access Users will see only basic permissions. If a user has access to multiple Church Apps, the top of the Global Settings menu will display those apps.
View Permissions: Limited Access Users can view details and functionalities within the apps they've been granted access to.
What happens when permissions aren't set for Location and App?
When a user chooses 'Apps' from the Global Menu and lands on the Apps dashboard, the system checks for Location access. If it identifies that the user lacks access to any Locations with associated Church Apps, a modal explains this discrepancy. This modal will vary based on the discrepancies in their access:
- If there's a mismatch between the user's location and the available Church App.
- If multiple locations have Church Apps but not the user's location.
Users are equipped with a 'Request Access' button. By pressing this, they can notify the Account Owner of their need for permissions. A subsequent confirmation will inform the user that their request has been submitted.
