User Roles

iDiD management has several different user roles, which have varying rights in the management. The roles help to streamline the user experience and to maintain the visual consistency of the organization.

Current roles


  1. Template editor: The user may create, edit, and save slide templates, which the slides are based on. In addition, a template editor has the ability to create, edit and save schedule templates, which are used in slide publishing. The user can also create, edit and publish slides which are normally displayed on the screens.
  2. Slide artist: The user may create, edit and publish slides based on existing templates. They may also edit unlocked elements in slides by changing their size, location or color. However, the slide artist cannot create and save new templates.
  3. Slide publisher: The user may create, edit and publish slides based on existing templates. The user additionally has a limited right to edit unlocked elements by using the organizations colors and fonts.
  4. Slide editor: Basic user; they may create, edit, and publish slides using templates and schedule templates. The editor cannot edit templates, schedule templates or elements in slides.
  5. Controller: The user may view players, templates and slides, but they cannot edit them.
  6. Maintainer: A superuser with the same rights as the template editor. In addition, a maintainer can create other user accounts and modify user account permissions and roles. Admins can see players but can't edit them.

NB! The maintainer role, i.e. superuser rights, is only granted to persons who have completed the superuser training. Training must be arranged separately with iDiD support.

The role of each user is defined when creating a user account according to the request sent by the organization's contact person or by the Maintainer. Please contact them for changes.

In addition to roles, users may have access to one or more levels in the screen hierarchy. You can navigate the levels by using the level menu. Slides and templates that have been created on higher levels will be automatically inherited by the lower levels.
