Author User Types

Authors have most of the abilities of a regular administrator, but lack the ability to publish or approve challenges and rewards. They also do not have permission to alter system settings. This takes some of the cognitive burden off of the administrator for content creation but still leaves publication responsibly in the hands of the main administrator.

Creating an Author 

1. Navigate to Settings > System > User Management

2. Click on the Add User button

3. In the configuration pop-up, enter the user details and choose Author from the User Type drop down menu

The newly created Author user will receive an invitation email shortly thereafter.
