Before you begin: The ability to configure and access the TapClicks platform depends on permissions. User permissions depend on user roles. There are four different user roles.
The Four TapClicks User Roles
- Super Admin
- Have full access to the entire TapClicks instance. They can manage all user/client data and business unit/client groups.
- Have access to the Connect Data Sources screen and all the administration functions.
- Are authorized to create all other users.
- Have access to their own data only.
- Can log into the dashboard and generate reports themselves.
- A single Client can be connected to multiple profiles for different data sources. This is the combined record that connects all the sources together into a single view.
- Business Unit Admin
- Have full access to all user/client data and business unit/client groups within their business unit.
- Can create new Clients, Agents, Business Unit Admins, client groups, custom dashboards and data profiles for their business unit.
- Have access to the client group that they have been assigned to.
- Have access to the dashboard and report generation, but do not have access to Connect Data Sources or administration capabilities.
- Can be assigned various roles which expand or limit their permissions in the platform.
For small or medium agencies, you probably only need Super Admin and Client user types. In such cases, all Clients are managed centrally by the agency. If you require separate branding for your business unit reports or you want to summarize several Clients in client groups, consider configuring business units and client groups. Once you have those, you can add the Business Unit Admin and Agent user types.
Note: All TapClicks users are identified by e-mail address and can be invited to the platform by sending a welcome email. Users can also be imported with a default password during the implementation.
