Roles in Silva


There are 4 different types of roles in Silva:

  1. Manager - all members of the Web Services team and Silva Support are Managers.

  2. Chief Editor - each Silva publication (website) will have at least one Chief Editor who is responsible for the website and its contents (including assuring copyright for images is dealt with) .
    A Chief Editor can edit and publish.
    A Chief Editor can provide people with access rights to the site as Editor or Author but they cannot give anyone Chief Editor rights.
    A Chief Editor can also import/export large files.
    A Chief Editor receives emails from Authors if they'd like their edit to be published - see below for an example.
  3. Editor - an Editor can edit and publish.

  4. Author - an Author can edit but NOT publish.
    Note: For this to work, both Chief Editor(s) and Author(s) will need to have set their User Settings!
    They will have to request approval in the 'publish' tab which will automatically send an email to all the Chief Editors of the site in question asking to approve and publish.
