Assigning a role to the newly added user allows for certain access to specific portions of BIM Track and specific commands. There are three roles to choose from and each has their own restrictions.
- Reader - A reader has very little access and can essentially only download and view the project from the online viewer. This role is not for the typical user.
- Editor - Most commonly given to the BIM modeler. This role allows for issue creation and merging but doesn’t allow for issue archiving. A very good combination of settings.
- Creator/admin - If you are not the hub owner but can add users, it’s because you are the project creator or have been given an admin role. If giving a user an admin role it’s because this user can and will be archiving issues, deleting issues, and updating project settings.
Here’s the access rights matrix. It will help clarify the roles and what each can perform:
