This article discusses how roles function in Lead Docket, and gives an overview of Lead Docket’s standard roles.
In Lead Docket, roles act as labels that help identify and distinguish between users, and typically correspond to a position in your organization. Each user can be assigned one or multiple roles, depending on the scope of their position. If a user has not been assigned any roles, they will still have general access to Lead Docket, which allows them to create and view leads.
Roles also impact how and when you can associate a user with a lead. Admins can choose which roles they want to associate with leads when leads reach a given status. Once a role is associated with a lead, the user with that role can receive tasks and messages for that lead.
