How do permissions work?
A Permission defines the tasks that a staff member is allowed to perform in Rescue Hub.
The Permissions screen can be found by clicking the Staff menu item, then clicking the Permissions link.
Each Permission has the following options:
Site Administrators can manage all aspects of Rescue Hub.
Determines whether a staff member is permitted to Record Training or Manage Training.
- Manage Training: granted to anyone allowed to make changes to training entries after they have been added to the system.
- Record Training: allow an individual to add new training entries into Rescue Hub, but does not allow them to make changes after they have been entered
- None: individual will only be able to mark individual Tasks as complete, no other Rescue Hub training entry permissions are allowed.
Typically a company officer is given Record Training permissions, which allows them to enter training into the system, but does not allow them to change training once it has been entered. Anyone who is allowed to make changes to training entries after they have been added to the system should be granted Manage Training permissions.
If you use the Calendar feature, which allows calendar entries to be color coded and categorized, you can grant access to calendar entries of a particular type.
