Managing People and Permissions in TCPinpoint

Users

A TCPinpoint User is anyone who has a TCPinpoint account, typically involved in one or more projects on TCPinpoint. Users are assigned authority on projects by the TCP system, or by Project Creators and Project Administrators. Users can be assigned Property Administrator authority by TCPinpoint. Users can be assigned roles on projects by Project Creators via the template, or by Project Creators or Admins on active projects. Users are assigned to tasks depending on their assigned role in a project.

Authorities

There are four types of authority in TCPinpoint: Property Administrator, Project Creator, Project Administrator and Project Party. Authorities have different permission sets for viewing properties, projects, tasks and documents separate from the role-based permission system. Each type of authority is granted in a different way.

Team Members

Team Members are users who have role and/or authority based permissions on projects. Team members are invited to roles in the template builder by the Project Creator, or in the project workspace by the Project Creator or Project Administrator. By default, Project Creators are team members on their created projects, and Property Administrators are team members on all projects under their property.

Roles

‘Role’ refers to the real-world function a user will perform within a given project, such as Retail Design Manager, Asset Manager, Shopfitter, Lease Admin, etc. The Project Creator designates role responsibilities and assignments in the template builder. Users are assigned to tasks on a project based on their role. Role permissions are independent of authority permissions.

Permissions

A permission is a single rule that states whether a user can or cannot view or take action on a resource. Permissions are groups of rules defined by what authorities a user has and what role they have on a project team.
