To manage users and their security, you choose which feature areas of your Blackbaud solutions they can access and assign them a role for each area. A role combines tasks and permissions to determine the user's level of access to the area. When you add a new user, the user receives an email invitation. After the invitation is accepted, the user has access to the feature areas based on their roles.
When you use one Blackbaud solution, the admins you manage have access to every feature area and task in the solution with full permissions.
If you use multiple Blackbaud solutions, there are two different types of admins you manage. The first type of admin has full permissions to all feature areas for your Blackbaud solutions. They also manage users and other admins for your Blackbaud solutions.
The second type of admin is for a specific Blackbaud solution. These admins have access to all feature areas with full permissions for that one solution. They can't access other solutions and they also can't manage users for other solutions.
