Anyone who registers for an account on your Tangram app is considered a user.
A user role is the type of user. For example, for a marketplace like Airbnb we have the roles “Host” and “Customer”. By default, Tangram also creates one additional role, “Administrator”.
In Tangram we can decide what each role can do, and what they have access to.
How to create a role:
To add a new role as an admin, click the wrench icon at the bottom left to get to the roles page then click the “+ new” button in the top right corner.
How to edit a role:
To edit a role as an admin, click the wrench icon at the bottom left to get to the roles page then click the appropriate tab for what you want to edit (navigation, subscriptions, or settings).
In the navigation tab you can decide what tabs users with that role see in the hamburger menu in the top right of their account. You can drag the pages to reorder them, and link out to custom URLs or templated tangram pages like an edit profile tab or transactions management table.
In the subscriptions tab you can define what platform-level subscriptions are available to each role. Click the “+ new” button to give eahc subscription a name, description, price, and billing interval. Read more on how to edit what is in each subscription here. Note: The subscriptions tab is only visible if subscriptions has been manually enabled on your platform by a Tangram team member.
In the settings tab you can change default settings for each role like whether they are required to connect a bank account, where they are redirected to when they sign up, or whether they need to be approved by an admin before showing up on the marketplace.
