Best Practices

Check Your Role Frequently: Especially if there are multiple administrators in the account. Permissions can change based on the needs of the organization.

Ask for the Right Role: If you find that your role doesn’t match your responsibilities, contact your account administrator to discuss potential changes.

Be Cautious: If you are an Editor or Administrator, remember that your actions can have significant impacts. Always double-check before deleting or making major modifications.


Understanding your user role is essential for efficiently using the ClearPoint Strategy platform. Each role serves a distinct purpose and carries its own set of permissions to ensure that users have the right tools and access to accomplish their tasks.
