Mango Users & Groups introduces three new roles in addition to the Account Owner:

  • Administrators
  • Data Editors
  • Private Viewers

Each role determines a users ability to perform tasks in Mango.

Account Owner

The Account Owner can:

  • Can view, edit, and delete all maps and datasets
  • Can manage the subscription, add-on Users, and billing information
  • Complete control over the account
  • Full creation, edit and delete permissions for all maps and datasets
  • Management of the subscription, add-on Users, and billing information
  • All maps and datasets appear in the Owner’s portal, regardless of map and data-specific Privacy settings

Administrators

Administrator roles are designed for data managers who need map and data creation rights, and rights to edit maps and data created by another user, but don’t need account-wide access.

To create Administrators, see the Adding New Users documentation.

An Administrator can:

  • Can view any public map
  • Can view any hidden map, if they have the map URL
  • Can view any password protected map, if they have the map URL and the map’s unique password
  • Can create maps
  • Can upload datasets
  • Can reupload datasets, if they created the dataset or if they are a member of a Group with EDIT permission
  • Can view any Internal map, if they are the map creator or if they are a member of a Group with VIEW permission
  • Can view any public dataset via the Data portal
  • Can download any public dataset via the Data portal
  • Can view any Internal dataset, if they are a member of a Group with VIEW permission
  • Can view and edit the features and geometry of any dataset, if they uploaded the dataset, or they are a member of a Group with EDIT permission

Data Editors

The Data Editor role provides access to view maps and edit attribute data and geometry on maps, but cannot perform account level changes such as map creation. Data Editors can view and edit geometry and attribute data of any map they have EDIT permission.

To create Data Editors, see the Adding New Users documentation.

A Data Editor can:

  • Can view any public map
  • Can view any stand alone map, if they have the URL
  • Can view any hidden map, if they have the URL
  • Can view any password protected map, if they have the URL and the map’s unique password

  • Can view any public dataset via the Data portal
  • Can download any public dataset via the Data portal
  • Can view any Internal dataset, if they are a member of a Group with VIEW permission
  • Can view and edit feature attributes and geometry of datasets, if they are a member of a Group with EDIT permission
  • Can reupload datasets, if they are a member of a Group with EDIT permission

Private Viewers

Private Viewers are view only roles that can be assigned to anyone inside or outside your organisation. The Private Viewer role is designed to provide Mango users with a zero-cost method of sharing maps and data with external stakeholders, while maintaining the integrity of your organisations data security.

Private Viewers cannot perform any map administration functions. Account owners can create unlimited Private Viewers free of charge, and is only available on the Enterprise and Agency plans.

To create Private Viewers, see the Adding New Users documentation.

A Private Viewer can:

  • Can view any public map
  • Can view any stand alone map, if they have the URL

  • Can view any public dataset via the Data portal

  • Can view any Internal dataset, if they are a member of a Group with VIEW permission

Everyone else AKA everyone on the internet

The public can:

  • Can view any public map
  • Can view any standalone map, provided they have the map URL
  • Can view any hidden map, provided they have the map URL
