A Guide to User Permissions on RebelMouse

On our platform, user roles range from base-level contributors all the way up to administrators. These roles are especially important when operating within the confines of our community dashboard, which brings multiple creators together to create and share within one large content hub.

Click here to learn more about our community user permissions and ratings, designed for the new content workflow.

The way each role interacts with others is completely customizable. The workflow is designed to streamline the edit, revision, and publishing process to make sure live content is not only perfect, but always optimized for site, search, and social. The way each team sets up their role structure is typically dependent on the number of writers employed, the amount of content published, and the cadence of posts.
