Bridge has five default user roles: learner, author, admin, IT admin, and account admin. Each user role has a set of default permissions. In addition to the default user roles, a Bridge user can be assigned as a manager of a learner or group of learners. The manager role is optional and can only be created by using a CSV import.

All users added to Bridge are given the learner role by default. However, learners can be assigned additional roles as necessary. Learners can be assigned more than one default role.

Account admins can assign user roles and manage permissions for the different roles in their account, including creating and managing custom roles.

Note: Some features may be restricted based on permissions for your user role.
