What are the different user types in Watershed?

There are two types of account roles within Watershed:

Global Admin Logins

Global Admin logins have full access to an organization's settings and can see every learner’s data. They can also add new users, set up and configure cards, and organize their company's structure. 

All Admin logins can:

  • see all data.
  • see all dashboards.
  • create new users.
  • create new shared dashboards.
  • create new cards on any shared dashboard.
  • edit cards on all shared dashboards.
  • create/edit Organization Hierarchy via CSV upload.
  • create new data source connections.
  • edit any user's data permissions.
  • edit any user's Explore permissions.
  • edit any user's Dashboard permissions.

User Logins

By default, User accounts can only see their own data. An Admin login could grant permission to a User login to see more data than their own. User logins can only change settings directly related to their own login.

User logins can: (Please note: the optional features are decided by Admins)

  • see their own data.
  • see additional users' data as prescribed by data permissions.
  • see the Your Cards dashboard.
  • see additional dashboards as prescribed by dashboard permissions.
  • use Explore to create new cards on the Your Cards dashboard. (optional)
  • use Explore to edit existing cards and save to the Your Cards dashboard. (optional)
  • copy cards from dashboards to the Your Cards dashboard. 

User logins cannot:

  • create new users.
  • create new shared dashboards.
  • create new cards on any shared dashboard.
  • edit cards on shared dashboards.
