The Ambassador role is automatically given to the initial creator of the site, but can also be assigned to other parents. This role is the lead administrative role, and can access all areas of the site. Often Ambassadors will be the fore-bearers of the site, which correlates with their ties to the School-Parent community. This role is normally suited to the heads of the PTA, who can govern the site with a fair hand as they will have the ability to view all content.
Ambassadors are fully capable of managing the administrative status of other parents, and can give any form of administrator status to any parent. They can also create and manage Community Groups, which act as separate groups, like classes for any conceivable interests.
An ambassador can post, send an announcement or invite to an event any Group/Class/Year. Ambassadors can also Invite new parents into any class, and can approve parents from any class who request to join.
The Class Rep role is perfectly suited for Class Reps, but can also be assigned in a number of other instances too. Class Reps still have access to most of the admin features; and are able to create community events, send announcements and post to groups.
The main difference between a Class Rep and an Ambassador is that whereby an Ambassador can interact with any Group/Class/Year, Class Reps are limited to just the Groups, Classes and Years that they belong to or represent.
Class Reps are also able to assign Class Rep status to parents in and for Classes that they represent.
School staff have all of the administrative powers that Ambassadors do, however a member of School Staff will not have any access to the parent side of Classlist. In this regard they are limited to just the admin (green) side of Classlist. This means that they cannot access or moderate any parent created content (such as posts or listings) but can still send out announcements and help with the approval of parents.
Community Reps can use the admin features to create announcements and community events, but have limited access to the other administrative features. A Community Rep can assign Community Rep status to any parent in the class that they belong. This role is suited for those that might need to occasionally post an Announcement, or create a Community event
