Roles can be assigned to User account specifically or can be used to refer to a certain type of visitor to your website. Some Roles within your site have been assigned specific levels of access where as others can be used for the purpose of Configuring Page Security

Default Roles

 The following is a list of roles that were made available to you when your site was first launched.

Page Security Roles

The following roles are not assigned to a user but would be used for Configuring Page Security
  • Authenticated Users - When this role is assigned to the page, only people who are logged in will see it.
  • Not authenticated Users - When this role is assigned to the page, only people who are not logged in will see it.  This role is good for pages where you want it only viewable on the public side of your website and you do not want members to see it when they are logged in.
  • Everyone - Special role which automatically covers all users. This role allows a page to be viewable on both the member (private) side and on the public side of the website.

Auto-Assigned User Roles

The following Roles are auto-assigned when a specific user type is created 
  • Members - The Members Role is automatically assigned to members that register on your website. Club Administrators can specify which pages are viewable to the Members Role.
  • Public - The Publice Role is automatically assigned to Users who are utilizing a public module such as Public Tee Times. A member that exists within your club's A/R system can not be created as a Public user. Users who have been assigned this Role can log into your website but will not have access to any of the Member modules or Pages that have Role-specific security settings.

Additional User Roles

The following Roles can be used in addition to other roles to further separate Users for the purposes of displaying specific content to them.
  • Employee – This role can be used if you wish to create an employee-only content area on the website. Any page content in this area would only be visible to users who have the employee role. Club Administrators can specify which pages are viewable to this role.
  • Board of Directors - This role can be used if you wish to publish content that is meant for a certain group of people. In this instance a member or any other type of user would be assigned this role. Club Administrators can specify which pages are viewable to this role.

Creating a New Role
