What Permissions Do Space Hosts and Space Moderators Have?

There are a few different roles that members can play inside of each Space.

For each of these options, there can be an unlimited number of people designated in each role.
Here's a breakdown of what the different roles mean:

  • A Space Host controls everything about the Space, but these permissions do not extend beyond the Space.
  • Space moderators have a slightly more limited role.

To make someone a Space Host or Moderator, navigate to Space Members, search for their name, then select More > Change Role > Space Host.

If you don’t have a member list enabled in a Space, you can find the members by going to the gear icon > Space Members > Member List and selecting the three dot menu.

If the Members tab is hidden, you can go to Manage > Space Members > Member List, then select the three dot menu next to their name.

Table of Contents Owner

Inside of a Space with a Table of Contents, you can choose Owners for each Lesson or Section.

To assign someone to be an Owner in the Space, you need to first make them a Space Moderator or Space Host (see above).

Owners have the ability to edit individual Lessons. Then, you can assign them to an individual Lesson. To do this, go to the Lesson you would like to assign to them, select the drop-down arrow, then Choose an Owner or Invite New Owner. You will only be able to Choose Owners who are also Space Host or Space moderators.

Once they are the Owner of at least one Lesson, the Overview will show them as an Owner.

They will be able to populate the Lesson, make the Lesson visible, and turn comments on or off. If a member comments on a Lesson, only the Space Instructor will receive a notification. Space Hosts that are not Owners for a specific Lesson will not get these notifications.

The Owners of a Section will show as Owners inside of the Lessons that are inside of that Section. If all of the Lessons inside a Section have the same Owner, the Section will only have one Instructor. If the Lessons inside of a Section all have different Owners, all of them will show up as the Owners of that Section.
