Three roles can be granted to users, custom user groups or a subsite for a link group. Each role assigns specific access rights or permissions. The following 3 roles are available:

  • Readers have read-only access to the link group and the link group details
  • Editors have read and write access on the link group. They cannot change the security settings of the link group.
  • Supervisors, besides read-write access, may also change security settings of the link group. Supervisors may also change ownership of a link group and make a link group private or public.
