FAQ Q180: Can I decide which administrative functions my resource administrators or moderators can access?

Yes, you can do this in Resource admin and moderator access permissions. You'll find this page in the site settings. Please note that by default both resource admins and moderators have access to all administrative functions (in case of resource admins, always in the context of the administered resources and not any others). You need to specifically disable permissions on this page in order to limit their access. Planyo lets you create default permissions separately for resource admins and for moderators. Note that you can also customize access permissions for each individual resource admin or moderator. If you do this, their customized permissions will override the general permissions you set for their user role.

Note: If you want to highly limit the access of your users (e.g. so they can only view the schedule but perhaps without the customer's email address), then you can create a customized iCal feed which will export the selected or all resources. You can then import the feed into a calendar such as Apple iCalendar, Outlook Calendar or Google Calendar, or if you'd like to present this in a nice schedule view on a webpage, you can use our free service planyo.net.

Of course you can also have planyo send customized notifications to your employees so they can be updated when an important event happens. You can use the BCC field if these users have no administrative role such as resource admin or moderator.
