    • Custom roles and permissions allow the fleet admins to manage, access, and improve the security of their fleet’s data.
    • These features allow the admins to easily assign users one of our pre-built roles or create a custom role for them.
    • They can also limit roles to specific groups in order to ensure work is delegated to the right people.

    7. You can add multiple roles and groups by clicking on the + (plus) icon. Once done, click on Update to save the changes.



    Note: You can also click on the - (minus) icon to remove a role that you just added for the user.

    Manage user roles

    Through managing user roles you can view, duplicate, or deactivate user roles created for your fleet.

    1. Repeat step 1 and 2 from the section above.

    2. From the Fleet Users screen, click on the Roles & Permissions tab. The page displays the default and custom roles. In the Roles/Status column, you can see a filtered list of users who are already assigned to that role.

    3. To duplicate a role, click on Options for the role you want to duplicate and click Duplicate


    4. A duplicate role is created of the selected role with the same set of permissions. You can set a new name for the duplicate role and adjust the level of access they have to your fleet data by checking or unchecking the boxes.



    Note: A duplicate role with the same name cannot be created. A new name always needs to be assigned to the duplicate role.


    5. You can also deactivate a custom role at any point. Click on the Options dropdown for the role you want to deactivate and select Deactivate.
