What are Administrator Roles?

Administrator roles determine the authorizations that the people you add as system administrators can and cannot do.

What Are the Default Admin Roles?

The person who registers on Fonzip on behalf of the institution has the authority of the Account Owner and is authorized to perform every transaction in the system. Once your account is approved, 2 default admin roles are defined for your Fonzip account.

  • Manager

  • Viewing

The administrator role can perform any action on the system. The Viewing role can view all the information in the system.

How Do I Add / Edit Roles?

When you go to Settings > Organization Settings > Administrators in our menu on the left, you can go to the list of roles by pressing the Role List button above.

You can see all the manager roles on the screen that will appear.

To add a new role;

Click the Add Administrator button at the top left.

To regulate the powers of the role;

Click on the role name, or after opening the menu from the Actions button on the right, click the Edit Role button.

To delete the role;

After opening the menu from the Actions button on the right, click the Remove Administrator button and confirm the dialogue that will appear.

Note: If the role you want to delete belongs to an administrator, the role will not be deleted.
