SiQ User Roles Overview

SiQ User Roles define permissions for users so they can perform related tasks and view specific data. An admin assigns a user role to each employee, determining their system permissions and defining their SiQ user experience. This article gives you an overview of SiQ User Roles and the permissions associated with each.

Head over to the User Role Matrix for more detailed information about user role permissions so you can determine the correct user roles for your employee. Also, Assign User Roles and Permissions describes how to give your employees the user roles.

User Role Descriptions

Administrators (Admin) can do anything within a SiQ account, including assigning user permissions.

Power Users (Power) can do everything an Admin can do, but they do not have integration capabilities.

Location Administrators (Location Admin) are given management over a specific location.
For example, a Location Admin will manage the San Francisco location and all San Francisco employees. The San Francisco office may manage seating for employees from departments as diverse as marketing, sales, and IT. The San Francisco Location Admin manages everyone in the San Francisco location regardless of their department assignment.

Department Administrators (Dept Admin) are given management over a specific department. For example, a Dept Admin may manage the marketing department. If there are marketing personnel in both San Francisco and New York, then the Dept Admin will manage marketing personnel in both San Francisco and New York.

Space Captains (Space Captain) are given a mix of permissions by location and department. Permissions may vary by individual user. For example, a Space Captain can be assigned to manage office space for sales personnel based in New York. Although there are salespeople in San Francisco, New York, and Boston, this Space Captain only manages salespeople in San Francisco. Another Space Captain may manage sales personnel in Boston.

IT permissions are given to users who manage SiQ integrations. They may also manage data exchanged between SiQ and an integrated platform. As such, IT has full integration capabilities. Since they do not manage employee seating, they have limited Viewer access and can see but not manage employees, what department they belong to, and their locations.

Viewers (Viewer) have the most limited SiQ permissions. Viewers can book a meeting room, a hotelling desk, and search for employees and view their seating information. They have no management capabilities.
