Account admins have the ability to view and manage permissions for default and custom user roles in their account. Bridge has five default user roles: Learner, Author, Admin, IT Admin and Account Admin. 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 is automatically created through CSV import.
- Admins can limit a manager’s default permissions but cannot give the manager role additional permissions.
- Additional permissions can only be given to managers by assigning them an additional role like admin or account admin. Learn more about using Bridge as a manager.
- This feature is not available in Bridge for Teams accounts.
