Basics

iSpring Online is a multi-user system. After you create an account, you get your own private portal, where you can upload your content, create your own new users and give them the rights to view certain content. You can also create a number of assistants (Publishers), who will also be able to add regular users (Private Viewers) and upload content, though they won't be able to manage your portal for you.

User Roles and Permissions

iSpring Online offers 3 user levels: Private Viewers, Publishers and Administrators.

Private Viewers - users with the least privileges. They can only view allowed content and track their own activity history. All the new users are Private Viewers by default.

Publishers - administrator's assistants, who can view the entire portal content, including all the reports. They can also upload new content, add new users (Private Viewers) and group them. To assign Publisher's rights to a regular user, add them to the Publishers group.

Administrators - users that get all of the system privileges. When creating an account, you become an Administrator by default. To create additional administrators, add them to a special Administrators group.
