About Schedulers and Roles
Snap Schedule 365 uses a role-based scheme to control access to its
data. This ensures that only authorized schedulers
(users of Snap Schedule 365) can carry out specified functions and that
sensitive data is not visible to people who do not have the privilege
to view it.
Within the database, permissions to perform certain operations within
Snap Schedule 365, or roles, can be
created for various job functions. Schedulers are assigned particular
roles and can therefore be limited to only performing certain functions
in Snap Schedule 365. When creating a new database, an Administrator
role is automatically defined and gives permission to perform all commands
Schedulers and roles are subjected to the following rules:
- A scheduler can only assume one role.
- A scheduler can only execute commands permitted in his/her role.
- A role can be assigned to multiple schedulers.
- A role can have multiple permissions (i.e. allowed commands or
- When Add/Edit/Delete permission is granted, the
corresponding View permission is implied, because
the scheduler must be able to view the information to perform the
- Denying access to certain features automatically denies access
to related and sub-features. For example, if a scheduler is not allowed
to access the Daily
View by Employee, that scheduler will also not be allowed to view
any sub-menus under the view. Similarly, some role settings have effect
in more than one place in the program. For example, a scheduler who
is not allowed to add/modify shift
assignments will not be able to copy assignments, and that scheduler
will not be able to drag-and-drop assignments to new cells of a schedule
