How do the different permission levels work?

What is the difference between an Operator and Controller? This page will outline and explain the different permission levels for Clever Logger users.

For most of our users...

User permissions are overkill for most of our users. This is our advice on keeping things simple:

  1. You will always have at least one admin. (Chances are, most organisations will only have one user. That user will be admin.)
  2. If you do have additional users, they will either be “Admin” or “Controller”.


Being blunt, a “controller” or “operator” can’t stuff things up. They can just view the data.

For our power users

Permissions are designed to allow you to decide who has the ability to view data, run reports, change settings, and administer users.

A user can either be an ‘org-wide’ user, or a ‘site-specific’ user.

Org-wide users have the same access level for every site in your organisation.

Site-specific users can have different access to different sites (for example, they could only have access to one site)
