    Fleet Admins can manage, access, and improve the security of their fleet’s data with custom roles and permissions. They can either use pre-built roles or create new user roles, and specify the level of access they have to a fleet’s data.


    Steps: Creating custom user Roles and assigning permissions 


    Create custom user Roles

    1. Log into the Motive Fleet Dashboard and click on the Admin icon in the left-hand side menu.


    2. Click on Fleet Users from the Organization dropdown in the left-hand side menu. It displays a page with the names of all registered users and their roles in your fleet.
