Role-based permissions for the mobile app

As a System Administrator, you can specify what controls a user can see on the mobile device, depending on their roles and responsibilities (also known as role-based permissions). For example, you might want an emergency team to be able to see the map, send field reports, start tracking, and send emergency duress alerts. However, you might want a student on a campus or non-emergency personnel to only be able to receive notifications and to send duress (emergency) alerts to security without having access to the map or to tracking or field reports.
