Account levels and permissions

Users have different permissions on your site, depending on their account level.

Site admin (Level 99)

Site admins have special access to their site. Typically event organizers are site admins, in addition to your JUNO team. Talk to your JUNO success manager to request site admin access for a user.

A site admin has the highest account level on their JUNO site. They are also known as “99-level users.”

If you're a site admin, you can:

The site admin account level does not bypass access level tags. Site admins still needs those tags in order to access restricted content.

Content admins

Any user can be given special permissions for individual pieces of content. Usually, these are speakers, moderators, exhibitors, or other content managers.

Sessions and in-person sessions

Users who are added to a session or in-person session through the Speakers tab or Presenters tab are given backstage permissions for that session. This means they can use moderation tools, join the greenroom, download analytics reports, and edit the session using the front-end editor.

Speaker pages

Users are added to a speaker page in the Information tab. Do this if you want speakers to be able to edit their own page and download analytics reports.

The second way to add a user account to a speaker page is in the Representatives tab. Do that if you want the flexibility to turn admin rights on or off for the user. Admin rights give them permission to edit the page and download analytics reports.

Exhibitor suites

Users are added to exhibitor suites as representatives so that they can be contacted by visitors. If admin rights are turned on for a representative, they can edit their page and download analytics reports for their page.

On-demand content

Users who are added to on-demand content with their admin rights turned on can edit that page and download analytics reports.

Courses and the learning management system

See User types and permissions for learning management.

Basic users (Level 0)

Basic users don’t have any special permissions. Everyone is a basic user by default.

Learning management system (LMS) roles and their permissions

This article is about the new JUNO learning management system (LMS). If you don’t see these features on your site, your platform still uses the legacy JUNO courses.

Different user types have different permissions within the JUNO learning management system (LMS).

Admin groups, Managers, Learners, and Instructors

A diagram visualizing manager, learner, and instructor relationships.

Users are organized into Admin groups in the database. An admin group might be a school or whichever type of grouping makes sense for your organization.

Each admin group has one or more Managers. In this example, they might be school administrators or teachers (in real life). Their job is to manage all Learners (students) in their group by enrolling them in courses.

When learners enroll in a Course, they become connected to the course and its Instructors. The instructor is the online teacher and/or course administrator. However, the instructor isn’t part of the admin group, so they don’t have permission to manage any of the learners.

Finally, a Site admin is the site organizer or staff member who manages the whole platform, its users and courses.

The diagram above visualizes these user relationships. The next section outlines user permissions in detail.
