User Roles

In VIVO there are four user roles that can be assigned: administrator, curator, editor, and self-editor. Future releases will allow VIVO administrators to create additional roles. Permissions provided to roles will determine access options available to user accounts within VIVO. It is important to consider what a new user’s role may be, prior to setting up the new account.
