2. Name the role and allocate staff
Name your role type and set allocate staff members (if you have existing staff members connected to Orah

3. Set Permission and Student Assignment
Identify if this role will require administrator or non-administrator access to Orah and their assigned students

If this role is a non-administrator role, please be sure to allocate the applicable assigned functionality for this user type

4. Product Access

Using the down arrow next to each product to expand on the settings that can be applied to the features within each product.

Allocate your product access points for this role.

5. Save and Review

Once you've applied your role settings, scroll to the top right and click save. You will now be navigated back to the staff roles summary page. This is also a view where you can review and access existing roles to update permissions
