Samsara uses the concept of tags to create logical separation of drivers, gateways and sensors into appropriate groupings.
Most configuration happens at the tag level, such as alerts, reports, and dispatch all. However, administrative roles can be set at both the Tag level and the Organization level and can be used for several different purposes.
Below is a description of each of the different types of administrative roles, how to configure them, and the specific levels of access that each role receives:
To create a new Organization Admin, select Settings > Admins > +Add an organizational administrator.
Enter the email address for the new administrator, and select the role that this administrator should receive. The screenshot below shows the screen for creating a new Admin, and the descriptions below that outline what each role means.
Organization Full Admin:
Organization full admins have the ability to make any and all configuration changes throughout the entire organization. Some changes include adding drivers, renaming devices, creating/deleting tags, and changing anything in the orgs Settings page. Organization full admins have full access to all tags within the organization.
Org Full Admin (No Dash Cam Access) has access to what is described above with the exception to viewing or retrieving dash cam images or footage.
Read-only administrators have the ability to view everything across all tags in organization, but are unable to make any configuration changes.
Read Only Admin (No Dash Cam Access) has access to what is described above with the exception to viewing or retrieving dash cam images or footage.
Dispatch Admins have read-only access to the Fleet section of the Dashboard, minus the Reports and Maintenance tabs, and with the added ability to dispatch vehicles to a particular location from the Dispatch tab.
Maintenance Admins have limited access to the Environment and Fleet sections of the Dashboard (minus the Reports tab). They have the added ability to view the maintenance logs and create new entries under the Maintenance tab, as well as the ability to edit sensor information under the Environment tab.
Administrators added to a specific tag are unable to access gateways, drivers, and/or sensors outside of that tag. The exact same concepts of Maintenance, Dispatch, Read-Only and Full administrators exist, except at the tag level, rather than at the organization level.
To create a new tag administrator, select Settings > Tags > +Add user to tag in the tag you want to add a new tagged admin. Enter the email address and select the role for the tagged admin.
