Types of Jostle administrators



In addition to the System Administrator, there are eight view-specific administrative roles in the Jostle platform (four Content Owners and four View Owners):

  • News Reporters and Editors
  • Events Creators and Managers
  • Library Volume and Category Librarians
  • Teams Chart and Category Administrators

By having multiple administrators, Jostle allows your organization to set up the responsibilities for maintaining your intranet in a granular way. This is most effective, as it allows for your organization to fill these multiple administrative roles with the people who are best suited to maintain the content for a specific area, rather than placing just one person as an overall administrator in charge of everything.

For the administrative permissions of each role, see below.
