In Metro Publisher there are five types of users with separate permission levels:
User roles may only be assigned and edited by account owners and admins, once the account owners have assigned staff members an admin role.
When you log in to your website dashboard via go.metropublisher.com you will see a dropdown menu at the top right, which contains a list of the user roles you have access to.
Depending on your user role, the top tabs in your dashboard will be different, since they reflect the access to the features you need.
For access to the respective features, you must have the correct permissions and make sure you switch to the appropriate role in the User dropdown menu.
You can check which user role provides access to the features your are looking for by visiting the respective help documents here.
In the example below, the user role is "Admin". Admins can have access to all other user roles in Metro Publisher, as you can see in this user dropdown screenshot:
Admins have access to some user management and billing features, as well as administration of Sections, Sprockets, Locations, Pages, Files, Tags, Sitewide Settings, Design, and Comments.
They can structure the site, add or remove 3rd party integrations, and add scripts to the website header, for example. The "Settings" tab gives access to the entire range of sitewide configurations Admins can make:

Editors are the content masters of the website. They have access to all features needed for daily content and page layout updates and creation.

Please note that Editors cannot make adjustments to the website theme - only Admins and Designers have those permissions.
Editors cannot move, merge, create, or delete Sections, nor can they access sitewide settings.

Users with the Designer role will work closely with account owners and other staff to make sure the look & feel of your website is on-brand.
Designers have the permissions necessary to choose and adjust the Metro Publisher theme most appealing to your readers via the Design Builder and to individually customize the design for PRO Account holders.
The tabs in the dashboard take Designers to the File Center and the Design Builder:

Writers can only create and edit all Content types, and their pieces require approval from Editors or Admins before that Content is published.
Locations, Events, and Files, i.e. images, are their additional Content type tabs.

Upon logging in as Website Account Owner via go.metropublisher.com, a Site Owner's dashboard is initially different to the other user dashboards, since it provides access to all service plan and billing features.
The "Edit" button takes Site Owners to their Metro Publisher worksite, where they can access all the features of all the other user roles.
