Manage board permissions

The ability to create new Posts content is tied to a user's permissions within the module.

User permissions are set individually for each Board. Site admins with the "Posts" admin right can assign permissions to users for each board in the module using the "Permissions" tab of the Board Settings. Board admins who are not site admins can also assign permissions for their boards.

  1. Find the Board whose permissions you want to edit. Click on the three-dot Action Menu, and select "Settings", and then "Permissions."

  2. Start typing a name into the "Add Constituent" field. Posts will begin suggesting users from Constituent Manager with matching names. Click on the desired user to select that person.

  3. Select the appropriate permission level for the user.

    • View, Edit & Delete: Users with this permission level can edit Posts at will, but cannot publish anything to the live site. Another user with a higher permission level would have to login to review & publish those posts.

    • View, Edit, Publish & Delete: Same as above, but with the added ability to Publish Posts to the the live site.

    • Admin: These users have full permission to view, edit, delete and publish Posts; manage board categories; adjust other users' permission levels; and add new users.

  • How do we allow parents with board permission access to add photos without creating an admin account for them? I trained a parent and gave her the ability to view, edit, publish and delete photos, however, I  realize that she is unable to actually add photos to file manager. Is there a work-around?

  • Each role in Constituent Manager (Parents, Faculty & Staff, Alumni, etc.) must individually be granted a file-space limit in File Manager. If this isn't done for a role, then users in that role won't be able to use File Manager. (Since this is a setting that only Finalsite Support can adjust, we can take care of this in a ticket.)

    When they are granted space in File Manager Parents can upload to the "Public Private Files" section, meaning they will be able to upload and share files with other logged-in website users; their files will NOT be visible to anybody who is not logged into the site.
