ML Work Orders™ uses a series of Roles which contain specific Permissions to determine what aspects of the system a user can access and what they can do.  Each district can create custom names of the roles which they want to use and assign the appropriate permissions. 


For example: The Role of "Teacher" should be given Permission to submit a work order, but not assign that work order to facilities staff, etc.
