Permissions for publishing events

I have a question about user roles. We have had several requests in the past months for granting “editor” access only to most users within a calendar group and then only having a few people as designated approvers of the event posting and publishing. Would the approvers need to have “publisher” or “curator” access to approve posts within their calendar group(s)?

Thanks for writing—and good question. As far as permissions go you’ve got that summed up correctly. An “editor” only has the capability of just that—edit hidden content only. They do not have the capability of taking things “live”. At a minimum the “publisher” role has the permissions to publish dynamic content/make events “live” and anything above that like curator and admin would also have that same capability.

So in the scenario you describe, yes, if you have several editors in a group you’ll just need someone with at least a publisher role to make those live. Additionally in the permission settings for adding/editing users there’s also another option to grant users the ability to add users to their own group without needing say an admin to do that for you—just wanted to mention it just in case that’s something you’re interested in. You can see that option in my screenshot here. Hope that helps and let us know if you have any other questions about this. Thanks!
