What Can the Different Roles See in Program Studio?
Program Manager or Administrator
Administrator accounts are unique from other roles as they operate at the organization level instead of the program level.
Administrator accounts are managed through a specific program's user page like other users, but an Administrator's account appears in all programs within the program's organization. For example, if you create an Administrator in one program, they will become an Administrator in all programs within that organization.
In contrast, a user can be a Member of one program and a Program Manager in another program within the same organization. If the user is promoted to Administrator they would instantly become an Administrator in all programs within the organization.
Permissions note: only Administrators can make new Administrators or edit existing Administrators (including editing an Administrator to demote them to another role).
Enable Content Submission Notifications
Channel Contributors, Publishers, Program Managers, and Administrators can receive email notifications when users submit posts in the web or mobile app.
These notifications are sent from firstname.lastname@example.org to the email address associated with the Program Studio account. The Click Here link in the email will direct Studio users to the submitted content that need to be reviewed in Planner.
These notifications are disabled by default but can be enabled by each user from Program Studio by following the steps below.
- Sign in to Program Studio.
- Select Profile > Edit Account.
- Edit the Content Submission Notifications settings:
- If Disabled: the user will not receive emails for any submitted posts.
- If Enabled and the user is an Administrator, Program Manager, or Publisher:
- The user will receive emails for all submitted posts that require approval.
- If Enabled and the user is a Channel Contributor:
- The user will receive notifications only for Channels that they are a Channel Contributor for.
