In this article, we’ll describe the process for granting admin permissions within Social Media Connections.
From the Social Media Connections module, you can grant permissions for admin groups to set up account connections or share posts to any available pages, as well as grant rights for any Posts user to share posts on Twitter or Facebook on an account-by-account basis.
Click on the gear icon in the top-right corner of the Social Media Connections module to access the overall module permissions. Any admin groups with Composer permissions in Admin Users appear on the Groups list.
There are three rights options available at the module level.
Not Allowed: Admins in this group cannot see the Social Media Connections module in the Composer navigation menu, and they will need to have permissions assigned to specific accounts in order to share posts.
Publish: Admins in this group can share to all available pages from Posts, but they do not see the Social Media Connections module in the navigation menu.
Admin: Admins in this group can share to all available pages from Posts, as well as access the Social Media Connections module and add new accounts.
By default, Site Administrator admin groups will have Admin access to Social Media Connections.
Once you have created accounts in the Social Media Connections module, you can assign permissions for users to share posts to these pages. Click on the gear icon next to each account to access the permissions settings.
Use the constituent field to search for a user in Constituent Manager, or click Select Group to choose a group from Group Manager.
With a rights level of Publish, selected users will be allowed to select pages associated with this account to share posts to.
Note: These permissions work in conjunction with Posts permissions. If a user does not have access to publish a post, they will not be able to publish to social media without another user approving the post.
