Differences between the roles




Different people can have different levels of access that affect what they can do within your language site. There are three different roles that team members can be assigned, and choosing which roles will be assigned to who will support you in managing your team’s workflow. There is also the option to add someone to your language site as a 'Member', which is NOT a language team role but a general community access role.

Members are not a part of the language team, but have access to 'Members Only' content on your specific language site.

Language Recorders are members of community-based teams responsible for creating language sites.

Language Recorders have the ability to create and edit words, as well as submit them for review by the Language Administrator. They aren't able to change the visibility of entries or delete them. They don't have any other administrative controls.

Recorders with Approval are members of community-based teams responsible for creating language sites.

Recorders with Approval have the ability to not only create and edit entries but also change the visibility of them and delete them. They don't have any other administrative controls.

The Language Administrator is the leader of a community-based team responsible for administering FirstVoices language sites.

Language Administrator accounts are created by the FirstVoices team (contact support@fpcc.ca to set up a new Language Administrator account).

Language Administrators have access to all language team features on FirstVoices.
