Introduction


Super administrators have the privilege of moderating all contents in the platform. Moderation is important to ensure contents and users are proper, accurate, appropriate, and within the described rules and regulations of the platform.

    • All submissions by regular users are for moderation by super administrators.
  • Opportunity Administrators
    • This type of administrators can post opportunities within their approved organisations without moderation. However, their submissions other than those opportunities are for moderation by super administrators.
  • Super Administrators
    • Super administrators are able to create organisations, opportunities, stories, and add users without the need of being moderated. These administrators are in charge of maintaining the quality of the contents posted and users added on the platform.
