The profiles are used to identify clearly the user privileges level. Profiles will provide access to more or less option, and sometimes override the group security :
- Standard user: most of eDMS have this profile. You privileges on documents will depend on document and folder security (so, based on your group membership), and on the document status.
- Training Manager: Same than standard user but has privileges to manage the employee training records
- Administrator: can do everything. Manage users, groups, document types, training controls, ... belongs to every group by default, so it has access anywhere.
