User roles allow the tenant to control its users' access to certain features in AdvaPACS. You can completely customize a role's name, description, and set of permissions. The account owner and users who have the right permissions can create, view, and edit roles.
Each role that you create can be fully customized. You can give it the appropriate permissions that fit the user you want to assign it to.
