Administrative Roles

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; things like alerts, reports, and dispatch all happen at that level. 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:

Organization Admins:

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 Admin:

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:

Dispatch administrators are the exact same as read-only administrators, except that they only have the ability to dispatch vehicles to a particular location from the Dispatch tab on the Fleet Overview screen. 

Maintenance:

Maintenance administrators are the exact same as read-only administrators, except that they also have the ability to view the maintenance logs and create new entries under the Maintenance tab on the Fleet Overview screen.

Tag Admins:

Tagged administrators only have access to the devices and settings within a particular tag in the organization. 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.
