There are two types of administrators in your Mighty Network: Hosts and Moderators.
Here’s how the roles break down:
- Hosts have full access to all the settings in your Mighty Network Settings including:
- This is a powerful role that includes the ability to manage your payment and run member subscriptions.
- Change all Mighty Network text and design options (including the Landing Page).
- Turn on and off all network features.
- Send notifications to all members of the network.
- Manage your form of payment and subscription to the Business Plan or Community Plan.
- Delete your Mighty Network.
- Moderators are a more limited role focused on moderating members, content, and features.
- Moderators can view Premium Analytics.
- Moderators cannot view plan or billing data.
- Moderators cannot download member data.
- Moderators cannot edit or delete posts from other members.
- Moderators can edit and delete comments and replies from other members.
- Moderators receive a notification when content is flagged.
- Moderators can add and edit Topics, but cannot manage them overall.
- Moderators can turn on and off certain features like Groups.
- Moderators cannot toggle on or off content types like Articles, Questions & Polls, etc.
- Moderators cannot add to or edit the Welcome and Featured Sections.
- Moderators cannot reorder Discovery.
- Moderators cannot access the Mighty Checklist or General Settings.
- Moderators can create Quick Posts, Articles, Polls & Questions, and Events.
- Moderators can use Notify All.
- Moderators can invite members, including uploading a CSV and importing contacts.
- Moderators can welcome new members and remove members, including Moderators but not Hosts.
- Moderators can invite members as moderators but not as Hosts.
- Moderators cannot change member roles.
- Moderators can view sent invites, send other people's invite reminders and revoke other people's invites.
- Moderators cannot see email addresses of invites they didn't send.
- Moderators can see and approve or ignore requests to join, and see answers to the questions people submit when they request to join.
Hosts have any of the permissions that moderators would have. With our Free Plan, you can have three Hosts. When you upgrade to The Community Plan or The Business Plan, you can add an unlimited number of Hosts and Moderators.
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.
Group Hosts and Course Hosts
Groups can have Group Hosts or Group Moderators, and Courses can also have multiple levels of admins. Read more about how to manage a Group as a Group Host right here, and learn about how to handle Hosts, Moderators, and Instructors in a Course right here.
With groups enabled on The Community Plan or The Business Plan you can also separately assign Host and Moderator permission to a group space. This would give the permissions you see above but only in the group (so group hosts could not delete the entire network).
Adding Hosts and Moderators
The creator of a Mighty Network is the very first Host. As the 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 Network Settings > 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 Network Settings > 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.
One other note: at the moment, Slack monitoring only happens at the Mighty Network level, not the Group or Course level. It's not you, it's us. :-)
