Campus Cloud Community uses a permissions system to share responsibility for moderating the campus community. Different roles have different levels of permissions.
Some permissions are common to all members. For example, everyone who joins a channel can post messages, and view basic information about a channel like the number of messages. Everyone who joins a channel can edit their own messages, or delete them.
Channel moderators have permissions that members do not. Channel moderators can delete messages from other people, for instance. They can remove a member from a channel. Additionally, channel moderators can post on behalf of an organization or service.
Channel owners are one level higher than channel moderators. They can edit a channel to change the name, description or image. If the channel is a private channel, moderators can approve or deny requests to join. They can disable or delete a channel.
Community Manager is the highest level of permission. A community Manager can do everything in the campus community. Community masters can remove channel owners from a channel if need be. As well, this is the only level of user who can mute another user and block them from posting.
Determine someone's role in a channel
Determining someone's role in a channel requires access to the Member List, which is controlled by roles and permissions. For information, see "Roles and Permissions" below.
A channel's Member List shows the role of each person in the channel. For more information:
Things to keep in mind
- When you create a channel, you are the channel owner
- When you join a channel, you join as a member
- When you invite someone to join a channel, they join as a member. You can promote them from a member to another role.
With Community Settings, you can fine tune the permission system to produce a campus community that’s just right for your school. For example, you may want a very open community where it is easy to create channels -- you can make this permission available to a broad group of community members. Or, you might want a more closed community where more of the responsibility resides in the hands of a smaller group. For more information:
