User Permissions



User Permissions can allow regular Users limited administrative access to the FormSpaces their group is assigned to.  This differs from regular Admin users, who have access to every FormSpace on a team.  These permissions are used far less often than FormSpace Permissions, and should be applied selectively. 

User permissions are applied at the user level, not the group level.



User Roles

ProntoForms permissions are, in part, tied to user roles. There are 3 different types of Roles: 

  • Mobile-Only User:
    • Mobile-only users can submit forms from their mobile devices.
    • Can change their own password from the web portal, but have no other access to administration tools.
  • User:  
    • This is the standard role for a typical field user.  As with a Mobile-Only user, a User can submit forms from mobile devices, but they can also log into the portal to view their submitted data records.  They will see their own submitted data.  
    • With advanced permissions configured, a User can also view and modify other users' permissions.
    • Can change their own password from the web portal.
  • Admin:
    • Is the highest level of access to a ProntoForms team.
    • Can view Data Records from all users on their team from the web portal.
    • Can create/edit/delete forms from the web portal.
    • Can manage all Forms, FormSpaces, Users, Groups, and Data in their team from the web portal.



Types of Permissions


Group Admin

This permission allows a regular User access to administer group memberships and user permissions for their group, but they cannot change FormSpace assignments and permissions.

Data Record Submission Listener

This permission allows a User to receive email copies of all data records (submitted by users in the group) that pass through an email data destination with the "Send email to the users with 'Data Record Submission Listener' checked in the Data Record Submitter's groups" option turned on.   This permission is typically used for a manager or supervisor.
