# Users

This section describes different types of dashboard users and their corresponding roles and permissions. It will also touch on access management, and a way to view the Skill Display through your users' eyes.

# User Roles

# Project Admin

Project Administrator's can modify all aspects of a Project, up to and including deleting a Project. The initial creator of a Project will automatically be assigned as the Project Administrator, however, any number of Project Administrators may be assigned. A Project Administrator role is necessary to approve self-reported Skill requests. Depending on the installation mode, a user may need to have a dashboard account before being added as a Project Administrator.

Please visit Project's Access Page in order to learn how to add/remove project's roles.

# Project Approver

Project Approvers are assigned to a particular project. The Project Approver role is allowed to approve and deny Self Reporting approval requests while only getting a read-only view of the project. For example users with an Approval Role can only view but not edit subjects, skills and badges.

Please visit Project's Access Page in order to learn how to add/remove project's roles.

# Root

The Root role is meant for administering the dashboard itself and not any specific project. Users with the Root role can view the Inception project. Users with the Root role can also assign Supervisor and Root roles to other dashboard users.

Please visit the Security Setting Section to learn how to assign this role.

# Supervisor

The Supervisor role allows users to manage Global Badges. Only users with the Root role can assign the Supervisor role.

Please visit the Security Setting Section to learn how to assign this role.

# Skills Display / Client Display

You can see what the skills profile and progress display would like for a particular user by navigating to a specific user page in the dashboard - Project -> Users -> Select a User -> Client Display. This is the same exact pluggable Skills Display that you would be embedding into your application so it can provide the ability to view the Skills Display through that user's point of view.
The client display will depict the project skills profile and user's points at that exact moment.

TIP

We suggest visiting the Skills Display view often while building a skill profile to better understand how your users will view the gamification profile and their progress. Optionally you can also Add Events Manually to better understand the client display.

If your gamification profile is utilizing Skills Versioning then you can view what the Skills Display would look like for a specific version by selecting a different version in the drop-down located on the top-right of the page.

# Performed Skills

To see a history of a user's performed skill events please visit Project -> Users -> Select a User -> Performed Skills. Furthermore you have the ability to remove a skill event if needed.
