Controlling Access and Privileges

Default Privileges

By default, users are granted the following:

Access Level

All adults/parents will be able to see other members of their family. Unless you change their access level, they won't be able to see information about other members.



Adults and parents are able to view troop information that is not specific to a particular user. They are also able to upload photos.


What if I want to change it?

If you'd like to change their default privileges or access level, you can do so by visiting the privileges tab on their profile after creating them.


How to Get There
