Need some background on public submissions? Start with our introductory guide: Pending Queue
You can restrict content moderation by limiting an Event Admin’s permissions to only designated Filters and/or Groups. These designations apply to admin functionalities, such as approving events and publishing events without approval, which means an Event Admin can use the public submission form to submit an event to all available Filters.
How to Restrict Event Admins
1. Navigate to Users > All Users or use the user-specific search field.
2. Select a user’s name from the list.
3. Underneath the permission levels, you will see Allowed Filters and Excluded Filters. These drop downs correspond to the Filters you have set up via Classifications > Filters. Parent/Child Filters are listed in the drop downs.
4. From the dropdowns, select which Filters you want a user to have access to.
- Allowed: Access to only this filter.
- Excluded: Access to all, but one.
- Note: Selecting a parent will allow the user to access all child Filters.
5. Save Changes
Once a Filter(s) and/or Group(s) is selected, the user will only have access to that Filter(s) and/or Group(s). If you Allow someone to a Filter or Group, they can approve everything in their Filter/Group and submit to other Filters/Groups through the public form for approval by an Admin assigned to that Group/Filter. Excluding prevents an Admin from interacting from anything associated with that Filter or Group, including public submission for approval.
When adding events, only the selected Filters will appear and when moderating they will only be able to see and edit events that have at least one of their allowed Filters.
- Example: If an event has the Filters “meeting,” “health & wellness,” and “community” an Event Admin will be able to edit the event because it has at least one of their Allowed Filters: “health & wellness”
- When editing an event, a user will be able to remove a Filter that is not one of their allowed Filters, but they will not be able to add the Filter again.
The pending queue will automatically update to show events with a user’s Allowed Filters or update to show no events if none match their Allowed Filters.
Similarly, if a user with restricted permissions receives the Pending Digest email then the email will include all pending events, but when they navigate to the queue they will only see and be able to approve those that match their filtered permissions.
