I was wondering if there is documentation somewhere explaining what the different user roles are able to do within the site? I found this link but it doesn’t go into detail about the roles: My Account | Wild Me Docs. Trying to decide which roles are appropriate for different team members- thank you!
Great questions. Our docs are a little too high level about this.
For most users who want to enter and curate their own data (e.g., assign IDs), I recommend just the researcher role. If you want them to do bulk import, I recommend researcher+orgAdmin. If you want them to be able to support other users in Wildbook and do any task, I recommend the roles researcher+orgAdmin+admin.
The roles are additive, so an admin without the researcher role would have a lot of configuration power but be blocked from simple data management tasks.
A basic guide:
researcher - can do data manipulation of their own data, run matching, set IDs, search across all data, and export data.
orgAdmin - can process bulk imports and can add users in their own organization (if that organization has been set up in Wildbook)
admin - can edit any data. can configure and change Wildbook behavior. can add and modify users.
I hope that helps.
