When an Employer User signs up for the first time, they input an "Employer" (Company) in the sign up form. If that company does not already exist in our database, the user is registered as the "administrative" user for the account. Employer users with an "admin" user role are able to edit other users' permissions, remove users from their company profile, edit the Company profile, and receive notification emails about who is joining their company. Use this article to change other users' access permissions, or user roles, on the Manage Users section of your Company Profile page.
What are Access Permissions?
Access Permissions control which users are able to take specific actions on your Company Profile. They also control who receives internal notifications. Access Permissions can be found in the "Manage Users" section of your Company Profile. User Roles can be found inside of the "Access Permissions" section of "Manage Users."

What are User Roles?
User Roles are the Access Permissions that specific types of Employer Users can be assigned. User Roles can be found inside of the "Access Permissions" section of "Manage Users."
There are two types:
1) Administrative User: this User Role enables the Employer User to edit the Company Profile and manage fellow Employer Users connected to their Company. This type of user receives email notifications when other users sign up to the same Company, and is able to remove other users from the platform. This user has full access to all features provided by school site instances and the Employer Portal
2) Associate User: this User Role enables the Employer User to all features provided by school site instances and has limited control over their Company's Profile on the Employer Portal. They do not receive email notifications when other users join the Company. They cannot edit other users' user roles.
