Community Roles
Get Satisfaction has role based access applied to the application. Aside from being a user, there are five roles in any Get Satisfaction community:

  • Admin – Admins have full access to the Admin Section of a community. This role is best suited for project managers, technical implementation managers, or those helping with the initial set up and launch of a community. The Admin role + Management Seat is the best option for a Community Strategist or Lead Community Manager.
  • Official Rep – Official Reps have limited access Admin Section of a community. This role is best suited for part-time Community Managers and Moderators, or contract employees.
  • Employee – Employee is the most basic role available to company employees. This role is best suited for users who occasionally participate in the community, but still have an employee badge.
  • Champion – Champion is the most appropriate role for your most supportive and loyal customers, and brand advocates who are strong contributors within your community.
  • Alum – This role is appropriate to use for your former employees that are no longer a part of the community, but whose content you still want to highlight as valuable. Alums have the same permissions as a regular community member, with no access to any Admin sections of a community.

With the Admin, Official Rep, Employee and Champion roles, a Management Seat can be selected for additional privileges and functionality. A Management Seat cannot be added to an Alum role.

Having a Management Seat gives the user access to:

  • Moderation Tools – Moderation tools include the ability to close, archive, merge, remove, or fork content, and set official responses. Some employee roles with a Management Seat can also set the roles of user others, add custom employee titles, and suspend other users.
  • Curation Tools – Curation tools include the ability to mark topic statuses, change topic types, edit topic subjects, and use category and private tags.
  • Community Health Analytics – Default set of reporting capabilities.
