Managing Roles and Permissions Follow
Before you invite members to join your organization, you need to create roles and designate permissions for each role.
The system comes with one built-in role: Owner.
Generally, the primary administrative contact (i.e. the Project Lead) between your organization and Motivity will be given this role.
Your Motivity CSC will also have this role in your organization.
The Owner role has all permissions.
The Owner role cannot be modified or renamed.
An Organization must have at least one Owner, but there can be multiple Owners.
Only an existing Owner can assign the Owner role to other members in an Organization.
Proceed with caution! If you make someone else an Owner, they could do anything in the Organization, e.g. delete the Organization entirely, or demote you and make themselves the sole Owner!
Creating a New Role
To create a role, click on the plus sign in the top right corner and name the role you would like to create.
Here is an example of common roles:
- Behavior Tech
The roles will be displayed alphabetically. You can set role permissions to view learners, add/edit learners, assign programs to learners, view/edit/add data, set target state (e.g. mastering targets, putting targets on hold), view/edit/assign team members to learners, and manage roles.
Applying and Changing Permissions
Slide the ball across the bar to set levels of permission for each role. You can slide the bar halfway to give the role permission only "if on team" or "if assigned" meaning that they only have this permission only if they are assigned to that learner's team. See Assign members to a team article to learn how to assign members to a learner's team.
If you slide it all the way to the right, that role will have permission to perform that action with all learners. See below for a definition of each permission.
Permissions can be changed at any time. Simply move the slider to the new level of permission. These changes are applied immediately and do not require saving or refreshing the page.

You can further restrict what session types a member with this role can collect:

If you would like to create specialized session types, we encourage you to reach out to your CSC for assistance.
