System Roles define the functionality which is available for a user. Each role corresponds to a specific system functionality.
Roles define the user's functional capabilities.
Note! that no role (including "Administrator" and "Supervisor") gives access to any level of the data of other users. User's data, dashboards, reports, etc are strictly separated logically and physically and not accessible by other users until they are explicitly shared.
The Viewer role is a basic role for a user after registration. The viewer role gives a user the right to log in to the system and access entities like dashboards and datasets shared by other users. Available content can be found in the "Shared with me" section My Space.
Warning! A supervisor can block or delete a user to prevent login into DataTile.
