  • There needs to be a explanation of the various levels of user permissions, and there needs to be more levels of permission to allow various users to function in multiple roles.  Perhaps Windows 10 permissions could be used?  For example, our treasurer needs to have access to contributions, batching, and transfers, but not to modify the persons database.

  • Hi @hchildsjr!

    I would be happy to explain some different examples of how user permissions can be used. Each church sets them up a bit differently so there is no wrong way which is why there is no set explanation of the different levels.This makes it simple for churches to customize their Users and Roles.

    This page gives you an example description of how these permissions can be used. You can edit or change them to fit your particular ministry needs. 

    "For example, our treasurer needs to have access to contributions, batching, and transfers, but not to modify the persons database." This is possible! When you select the pencil icon on any role, you can edit the permissions to reflect this need. If you want to set up your own role for treasurer you can do that as well.

    Steps:

    1. Add New Role

    2. Create Name and Description

    3. Your permissions are listed below- only select Contributions:

  • Hi there, is it possible to set up a role for our team admin that needs to be able to have the members role (edit their profile, etc) and check in members and add visitors all from a single login? Thanks

    Thanks for reaching out to the breeze community!

    It is possible for you to have access to both of those things through one login. All you have to do, is make sure that you add my profile permissions to that role! After that, you will need to connect your profile to the user so that The right profile is connected to it! https://cl.ly/09f163811e26

  • Is it possible to give a user permission to manage volunteers for only one calendar but view the events for all?  I want my Parish Education committee to be able to manage volunteers for the Sunday School calendar and have view only access to our Main Calendar (not be able to manage volunteers).

    Great question here! Unfortunately, this would be a limitation of Breeze as the permissions for Events are not that granular. Giving permissions to manage or edit events would give them the ability to edit them for every calendar they had access to see. 

    Cheers!

  • I'm curious how to let our congregation members update their info but making sure they're only allowed to update their own? Is this possible? Particularly with contact info and then what options we have with how much info we want to have available that others can view.

    Great question! The answer is Yes -- this is precisely how Breeze is designed to work. You can find out more information in the following articles:

    Please let us know if there's anything else that we can do for you!

  • Are there any plans to add the ability to assign multiple roles? Or perhaps leverage the existing tags function to assign permissions?

    I currently have, more or less, the same permissions applied to several people, but have ministry specific permissions assigned to each of them. Whenever I need to adjust the permissions for everyone, I have to go through every single role and update the permission.

    Ideally I’d like to apply a “Basic Permissions” role to them all, and be able to supplement their permissions with roles like “Kids Ministry” or “Accounting” that offers special permissions, while still being able to change permissions broadly with a single action.

  • Hello @mbabler!

     

    Thanks so much for writing into us today! 

    You bring up really great points about how our software can improve. I am an admin at my church too and I can definitely see the need for adding these types of features to add the ability to assign multiple roles, leveraging tags to assign permissions, and being able to do more broad strokes when editing permissions. 

     

    I would love to invite you to fill out a feature request so that we can continue to improve in the ways you suggested. You can fill out a feature request here: Submitting Feature Requests 

     

    Though I wish we had a solution for you today, we do appreciate your feedback and hope to improve with your suggestions. 

     

    Blessings,

    Annie
