What roles are there and how can I assign them?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In Ed Controls, there are several roles available. In this article you will find information on how to assign these different roles. This is very important. Ed Controls is set up based on the so-called RASCI model. This contains the roles with the English names Responsible, Accountable, Support, Consulted and Informed.

What does the role entail?

The Administrator is the one who creates projects in Ed Controls, assigns a single Accountable per project and archives projects in the end.

The Administrator has full rights to view all projects, but cannot create tickets or audits themselves.

Both the Administrator and the Accontable can add the roles of Support, Consulted and Informed at the project level. In the project settings, you can add the roles. Click on the icon in the shape of a pencil in the lower left corner of the project tile.

Multiple Administrators per contract is allowed.

How can I assign this role?

The Administrator role will initially be assigned by your account manager at Ed Controls. After this, a new Administrator can only be added by an already added Administrator via a written (email) request to our Support Team.

What does the role entail?

The ‘Manager’ role can be added at the contract level. This role is intended for senior management or the director.

The Manager has access to the Dashboard in Ed Controls. It displays all available statistics from all projects linked with the contract. This allows the Manager to analyze trends and see what is going on.

The Manager can also view all projects in read-only mode. In this way, the Manager does not claim an active license. The difference with an Administrator is that the Manager cannot change the project settings, nor can it archive projects and tickets.

How can I assign this role?

The Manager will initially be assigned by your account manager at Ed Controls. If another Manager needs to be added, this request can only be made by an already added Administrator via a written (email) request to our Support Team.

What does the role entail?

The Final Manager is responsible for the project. Each project has one Accountable who has all authorisations for that project. This role claims a license.

This person can change project settings, but also has full rights to create tickets, templates, audits, perform audits and upload drawings.

The Support role has almost the same functionalities as the End Manager. The Support role claims a license.

The Responsible Party is responsible for the execution of one or more tickets.
