What are different types of accounts and privileges?

There are 4 types of accounts: front end users, evaluators, editors, and administrators.

Front end user accounts are created in Webtools, but they only allow access to secure pages that require login on center and program websites.

Evaluators only have access to evaluate grant applications.

Editors have access to most features of Webtools such as the article, event, directory, and miscellaneous editors modules. Each editor is assigned one or more center/programs whose data they will have access to.

Administrators have access to all Webtools features. This type of account is reserved for IST personnel.
