UQ Drupal sites have two user roles: Editor and Site Coordinator. These roles allow sites to be built and maintained with as much self-sufficiency as possible.
Site Coordinators will be trained inline with their site developement, by appointment and will take responsibility for training their Site Editors in-house, with the support of online training materials.
They have the simplest set of permissions that allow them to easily maintain websites they are responsible for. A Site Editor's primary purpose is to generate and maintain content.
Each mid to large sized site must have at a Site Coordinator who is a more advanced user than Editors, and can perform additional actions in the system. Site Coordinators are the primary point of responsibility for a website and the first point of support for Editors. Site Coordinators have the ability to setup and layout homepages, as well as configure some layout choices on inner pages.
A Site Coordinator will have all the permissions of a Site Editor, plus:
Developers, such as those in Web Services and ITS and some external developers, have the Administrator role. This role has the broadest set of permissions and allows for site configuration and complex development.
