Cognisess provides a comprehensive permissions suite giving you full control over access rights to the various platform areas and functions, as well as read and write permissions within each of these. This allows you to cater for every role within your organisation and their respective responsibilities.
There are four permission levels within the platform, as follows:
- Partner Administrator: Can be given any permissions that are available at the organisation super user level. Can also be given permissions to access all organisations within a partner as well as edit partner level settings.
- Organisation Super User: Can be given any permissions that are available at the administrator level. Can also be given permissions to change the permissions of any other users (but not themselves) and to assign accounts to secondary organisations that they require access to.
- Administrator: Can be given any permissions that are available at the line manager level. Can also be given permissions to access organisation settings, manage jobs and candidates, dashboards and survey requests.
- Line Manager: Can be given permissions to see employees, teams, roles and other employee centric structures and functionality that is provided by the Cognisess platform.
Each of these permission profiles can be individually configured.
Permission levels are strictly hierarchical, with each “higher level” having access to the permissions available to any level below.
By default, every Cognisess partner is given a single Partner Administrator permission profile.
Each organisation is given:
- 1x Organisation Super User profile
- 1x User Administrator profile
- Line Manager profile
You can create custom permission profiles if required, for instance to distinguish between different roles and responsibilities at the same permission level.
Note that a user can only be applied to one permission profile per organisation.
Additionally, unlike other permission levels, the partner administrator level permissions are shared across all organisations within the partnership.
