There are two types of administrators in your Mighty Network: Hosts and Moderators.
Here’s how the roles breakdown:
- Hosts have full access to all the settings in your Mighty Network’s Host Management. This is a powerful role that includes the ability to upgrade, run member subscriptions, change all Mighty Network text and design options (including the Landing Page), turn on and off features, and even delete your Mighty Network.
- Moderators are a more limited role focused overseeing members, content, and features. A Moderator can invite, welcome, and remove members as well as edit and delete posts and activity from other members. Within Host Management, they can add and edit Topics, turn on and off features like Groups, add to and edit your Welcome and Featured Sections, and view Host Analytics. Moderators do not have access to plan or billing data, and they are not able to give members free access to a paid Mighty Network.
When you add Moderators, you can recruit a team to welcome new members, contribute posts, invite and encourage members, and drive regularly scheduled events in your community that will make it thrive.
Adding Hosts and Moderators
The Creator of a Mighty Network is the very first Host. As a Host, you can promote other members to either a Host or a Moderator role. To do so, go to the “three dot” menu on a member’s profile page or when you see them in your Host Dashboard > Members list. From there, hover over a member and click the three dot menu next to their name to change their role like this:
Inviting Moderators Directly to Your Mighty Network
As a Host, you can also invites Moderators directly into your Mighty Network by going to Host Dashboard > Invite and opening More Options at the bottom. Then just check the box to invite:
Use Slack to monitor your Mighty Network
One more thing. Your Mighty Network has Slack integration for Hosts and Moderators to monitor and jump into the activity in your Mighty Network. It's a fantastic way to collaborate privately among Hosts and Moderators, especially on high volume communities. Learn more here.
And that’s it! With Hosts and Moderators you can spread the love (and the work!) of growing and engaging your Mighty Network. Enjoy!
Groups have Group Hosts, but no Moderators. By definition, a Group Host doesn't have the same powers or permissions that a Mighty Network-level Host has, so a Group Moderator isn't necessary. One other note: at the moment, Slack monitoring only happens at the Mighty Network level, not the Group level. It's not you, it's us. :-)
