User Roles can be created to manage and restrict access for your Eventsforce Groups & Ticketing users. Users can be limited to menu options and features specific to their job responsibilities.

Roles comprise a series of functions that reflect the menus and menu items in Eventsforce Groups & Ticketing. Menu items will only display if the relevant function is added to the role.

Note: As a general rule, a user should only be assigned one User Role to prevent conflicting settings. The exception would be an "Administrator" who is also a "GDPR Administrator," as these two roles can work together.

This article covers:
