Once you determine a contact station's role ("station user," in most cases), you can give the person access to specific ContentDepot functions via the "Optional Permissions" screen. This screen will automatically appear as part of the user setup process. Optional permissions include:

  • Add Users (and associate with Customer)
    Gives a contact the ability to create other contact accounts for your organization.
  • Download Content if subscribed (all programs)
    Enables a contact to download files for programs to which your station is subscribed.
  • Edit Customer Profile
    Allows a contact to edit your organization's address and profile information.
  • Edit User Profile
    Gives a contact the ability to modify other user profiles for your organization.
  • Send Mail
    Enables the contact to send messages via the ContentDepot messaging system.
  • Subscribe to Content (all programs)
    Gives the contact permission to subscribe to programs on behalf of your station. Thereafter, programs will automatically be delivered to your station, and this subscription information will be reported to the program distributor.
  • View Customer Profile
    Enables a contact to view the customer profile information for your organization.
  • View Customer Reports
    Enables a contact to view reports for your organization, including user account reports that identify other users and their permissions.

Once you determine a contact producer's role ("producer user," in most cases), you can give the person access to specific ContentDepot functions via the "Optional Permissions" screen. This screen will automatically appear as part of the contact setup process.

Important: Assign optional permissions if you want to give your producers the ability to perform these functions for all programs that your organization distributes. If you wish to assign permissions only for a specific program, do not add those permissions at this level. A separate screen will enable you to assign permissions by program.
