Here at PBworks, our powerful and flexible system of custom security and user permissions is one of the key capabilities that makes our collaboration suite enterprise-grade. When you’re a PBworks customer, you have the ability to specify exactly who should be to do what and where.
The downside of this highly granular security has been a certain level of confusion about terminology. When someone says that they’re an admin, does that mean they are a Network Admin or a Workspace Admin? (depends) Can you grant a Page-Level Only user access to a particular folder? (yes)
Because more and more organizations are using PBworks more intensively, we’ve decided to update the names we use for roles and permissions to eliminate the confusion. For example, rather than wondering about the difference between a Network Admin and a Workspace Admin, you’ll be able to distinguish between a PBworks Admin and a Workspace Moderator.
Starting on the evening of Monday, August 26, these changes will be reflected throughout PBworks, including dialog boxes, menu items, and even tab names. For example, the current “Everyone” tab on your network will be renamed “Users,” and the current “People” tab on your workspaces will be renamed “Members.”
(If you’re an advanced user, and you’ve already modified these tab names, don’t worry, we won’t overwrite your changes)
