Aconex user roles

By default, your Aconex project will have five user roles. User roles control what users can, and can't do, in Aconex. Find out more about what 'Project Admin', 'Org Admin, 'Document Administrator', 'Basic User Plus' and 'Basic User' mean.

Organization Administrator (Org Admin)

If you're an Org Admin you're responsible for:

  • managing Aconex's settings for your organization
  • configuring and assigning Aconex user roles to people working in your organization.

Whoever registered your organization in Aconex became the Org Admin by default but this can be changed.

See our Org Admin Kit.

Project Administrator

Project Admins — there can be more than one — are responsible for managing the way their project is run on Aconex.

Most Project Administrators work for the project-owning organization. Project Administrators in the project-owning organization can make changes to project-wide settings. These settings apply to all organizations working on their project.

Project Administrators for a company other than the project-owning organization can administer some settings specific to a project. These settings apply just to their organization's work on that project.

For more information please see the Project Administrator Kit.

Document Administrator (Doc Admin)

A document administrator is a person appointed to manage documents on a particular project for their own organization. By default, Doc Admins are users who are made responsible for particular document control functions.

Basic Plus User

The basic plus user can do all the things of a basic user, as well as transmit and supersede documents.

Basic User

The basic user role allows a user to create, view and manage mail, search the document register and view the global directory.

There may also be times when you need to work with someone who doesn't need full access to Aconex. Find out about guest user accounts.
