Channel Membership Levels

Channel members may have one of four access levels:

  • Member: this access level allows the member to only view content.
  • Contributor: this access level allows the member to view and add content to a channel. Content added to the channel may be subject to moderation, if the channel is configured to require moderation.
  • Moderator: this access level allows the member to view and add content. The member can approve content additions to a channel that requires moderation.
  • Manager: this access level provides administrator permissions and is the same level as the channel owner. Managers may add, update or delete content and members.
