User Roles/Permissions

You can assign different people different types of access. Some may edit, while others can only view:

  • Moderator – like an Owner, they have access to everything except the Room Settings
  • Collaborator – can draw, edit, delete their own content, and change Sync Mode. They can’t delete pages, change other’s content or change other’s permissions.
  • Reviewer – like a Collaborator, except they can’t import any media, such as images or documents, into a room.
  • Viewer – can’t edit or change anything.
    • With Sync Mode ON, they are locked onto the currently sync’d page, and cannot navigate. 
    • With Sync Mode OFF, they can navigate pages as they wish.

Why can viewers navigate when Sync Mode is OFF?

  • When giving a presentation, Sync is usually ON so that everyone will follow you from page to page.
  • When using Vyew for document review or collaboration, when you may or may not be present, Sync is usually OFF to allow collaborators to browse as they need.
