Why can’t I have admin rights?

Having administrative privileges can be a blessing and a curse. A blessing on the one hand that you can control what is being put into the system and as administrator you have the responsibility to make sure that all information within the system is correct, and individuals that need access to the system have the proper access. The curse is that it is your responsibility to make sure that the information is correct and if you don’t have the necessary time to properly manage the system it can become a difficult task. A great thing about Therap’s admin access, it is broken into different areas, so you can spread out the workload. You can have house managers responsible for password resets, you can have the admissions team responsible for individual intake and discharge, and much much more. Break out the workload.

Administrative Rights…Super Admin

What the heck is a Super Admin anyway?  Some would say they are the ones that have “All the Power”, some would say “just a fancy title”, and others would say that is me, I am a “SUPER ADMIN” J  Your half right and half wrong, if that is even possible.  A Super Admin is a user that has the ability to have complete control over the system for your agency.  Complete control means the ability to admit individuals, create and delete users, reset passwords, add templates, adjust caseloads, etc.  In the smaller agencies it is the Executive Director or the CEO, in the larger agencies it can be a variety of people from the Director of the Residential Program a program coordinator or even the HR Manager.  With the Super Admin role you want to keep it to a limited number of people due to the influence that this person has over your system.  I recommend that there be two maybe three people depending on your agency size.

 

Up next in the coming weeks will be the some more admin roles that we will review.  Take time and review who has Super Admin rights in your agency, maybe you have too many people and maybe you don’t have the right people taking care of the job.

Administrative Rights…You’re never alone

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller

When setting up Therap, it is always important to have a Super Admin be one or two people, but sometimes one or two people is just not enough especially in a large agency, so agencies think well lets add three and four or more people to Super Admin roles.  That can be good, but it can also be bad.  When there are “too many hands in the cookie jar” errors can be made and depending the settings it will hard to make people accountable of their actions.  That is why as an agency has the opportunity to assign various administrative rights to various individuals so that one or two people are not responsible for everything.  There are currently 14 administrative role assignments that can be used.  Over the course of the next couple of weeks, I will be reviewing each of these roles with you so that your agency can make the correct decisions on who gets what rights.
