Did You Know? Assigning permissions to sub- or read-only users

If you have multiple users you’d like to provide varying access to the websites on your account, Raven’s User Manager has got you covered. You can assign sub-users and read-only users different permissions for different websites, as well as set default permissions for any new websites added.

To add a new user to your account, click the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner of Raven and select User Manager.

To edit the permissions of an existing user, click the “Edit” link in the options column to the right of their name. To add a new user, click either the “Add Sub-User” or “Add Read-Only User” button.

On the User Details page, find the profile that contains the website(s) you’d like to allow the user access to, and select the role you want to apply from the drop-down menu.

If you have more than one website organized under the profile, a “Customize” checkbox will appear. Check the box to select the websites you would like the user to have access to.

If you don’t want the user to have access to any of the other profiles, make sure “No Access” is selected from the other drop-down menus.

You can set a default role for the user in the Default Role drop-down menu. If you select “None,” this will ensure that the user is not given access to any new profiles created on your account.

Please note that if you create a new user, leave the default role set to “None” and do not specify roles for any of the profiles on your account, the user will not be able to access anything within Raven. If a new user is having trouble accessing Raven, check to make sure their role for the website they’re attempting to access is not set to “None.”
