How to change a user role and access to apps, projects and layers.

As an administrator of an account, you may want to define custom permissions and levels of access to specific apps, projects, and layers.

There are two general ways that you can edit member permissions. One is through the member permissions page. The other is from within the app, layer, or project pages.

Member Permissions Page

To edit or modify a member’s role, remove someone from the account, or permissions for apps, layers, or projects you will want to start by (1.) clicking on the Members tab. Then locate the member you would like to edit the permissions for and (2.) select Edit to the right.

After clicking the edit button for a member, you are taken to that member's permission page. From the edit member screen, the user's role can be changed. The member's access to groups, apps, projects, and map layers can be granted or revoked as well.


  • When revoking a member’s access to an app, the next time that user syncs Fulcrum on their mobile device, that app and its data will be removed from the device. This is intended to provide higher levels of security to control access to apps and data in the event a device was lost, or a user should not be able to access that data.

  •  You will only be able to edit a member's email address if their user account is only associated with your Fulcrum plan. Note the screenshot above.

  • Any users with “Owner” role in your plan will automatically have access to all groups, apps, layers, and projects within the plan.

Managing permissions within the app, layers, or projects pages

The ability to edit the access to apps, layers, and projects can also be managed from within the element itself. This is useful if you need to grant/remove a group of members access to a specific app, layer or project.


On the app's dashboard page, you can manage what users have access to the app from the Members Permissions button.


On the layers management page (where you go to add a new layer), you can select to edit a layer and then edit which users have access to that layer.


On the projects management page (where you go to create or edit projects), you can edit a project and and then edit which users have access to that project.
