Please Note

With our new GoReact dashboard, there is some new terminology. Note that Folder/Course, Activity/Assignment, Owner/Instructor, and Participant/Presenter are now interchangeable terms.

User Roles

User roles in GoReact determine permission levels and accessibility of all content. The following defines the roles we use and the level of access each one permits:

  • Owner: Owner of an account or folder. All administrative rights granted within the account or folder. Can create, view, and manage content and users within the account or folder. (NOTE: If an owner is invited into another owner's Account, they can also create and manage all content and users within that account).
  • Admin: All administrative rights within a group, generally reserved for organization administrators.  Organization admins can create, view, and manage content and users in any account or group within the organization.
  • Reviewer: This role is typically used for Teaching Assistants. Can only view, critique, and evaluate all videos in a folder.  Cannot record sessions, create activities, or manage content and users.
  • Participant: This is the Student role. (Previously known as a Presenter.) Can record, upload, and view their own videos.  If activity settings permit it, a participant can view peers' videos and provide feedback on them.

Changing user roles

Please note:

As an Owner or Admin, you also have the ability to change a user's role as long as their permission level is lower than your own, and as long as they are within your own folder or organization.

Please follow these instructions to change a user's role:

  1. Select the ellipses icon next to your folder name and select "Manage users".


  2. In the panel on the right, click the ellipses icon next to the user whose permission level you wish to change, and then select "edit".


  3. In the profile window, click the permissions dropdown menu, and select the desired user role and it will automatically update.  When you're finished adjusting their role click "close".
