Custom properties such as a company name, phone number, etc. can be added to users by clicking the
Custom Fields link on the Users page. These will appear under the
Custom Fields section of the user add/edit forms.
To create a new user role, click on the
Roles link on the Users page, then click the
Add Role link on the Roles page.
Each role has a name and a series of checkboxes that specify the permissions for that role.
The first checkbox, labelled
Default access for this role, determines whether Elefant should default to denying or allowing access to the various permissions.

Some examples of the available permissions include:
The available permissions will grow as you install new Elefant apps, which may define their own custom permissions in addition to the core permissions.
