Granting editing rights

How to grant editing rights to another gateway user.

You are allowed to grant rights equivalent to your own rights to any other gateway user. So, if you are able to edit content for a specific gateway group section then you will be able to grant similar rights to someone else.  This is useful where another group member wants to be able to add information to your group site.

First, you must login to the region site.

Then, you need to determine the point from which you want to grant the rights. In most cases this will be the home of your gateway site. You should navigate to this location. Note that all content is arranged in a hierarchy and rights are applicable to the point at which they were granted and below. For instance you may grant rights for a project only and in that case the new editor will only be able to edit content in that project.

Once you are at the right location, then you will see a 'Manage Users' button on the left of the page under the menu headings. Click on this button and you will see the option to enter a user name.  Enter the user name exactly being mindful user names are case sensitive.

Once you have found the correct user click ADD then approve.  When done you will see the user name as a tile under the MEMBER heading, you can leave them here (to view member only content) or you can then click, hold and drag the tile to the MANAGER section if they are to create and edit content for your listing.

You can now notify the other member that they are able to add/edit content for the gateway listing.
