Our customizable permission sets are designed to provide complete control over access to your nation. Control panel user profiles are treated differently from other profiles for security reasons. In the past, only admins could edit control panel users or add a control panel user with a different permission set. With the addition of "manage control panel users," you can provide more people with these abilities.
Remember that the admin permission set exists automatically and has access to everything in your nation. You can create up to five additional permission sets. By default, "manage control panel users" is set to no for permission sets that currently exist.
The below table explains the difference between manage control panel users and add control panel users.
Add profile with same permission set
|Add profile with different permission set||Edit control panel user profile||Reset control panel user's password*|
|Add control panel users||yes||no||no||no|
|Manage control panel users||yes||yes||yes||no|
*Anyone can reset her own password following the prompts on a nation's website, triggering a password reset email. Only admins can reset another person's password by editing it on a person's profile within the control panel.
Theoretically, a person with this permission could take over another user's account. We recommend reserving this permission for your most trusted control panel users.
