  • Groups Overview

    User groups dictate what permissions a user will have in the system.

    Users will not be able to log into CommunitySuite unless they're added to a group.
    1. Log into CommunitySuite and select Groups from the Core column of the Home page.groups_overview.png

    2. The groups page displays a list of the default CommunitySuite groups, and any custom groups that have been created by your foundation.

      Default User Groups

      • Admin - has access to everything in the system.
      • Accounting - has access to everything in the system, except the ability to create users, set passwords, and change permissions for users or user groups.
      • Staff - has access to most items. Read-only access to financials, users and permissions.
      • Audit - has “read only” access to everything. Designed for an external auditor - for example, you can create a user with "read only" access for your annual audit.
