Understanding member roles

The ability of each member of your subscription to perform different tasks depends their role in the subscription.

Every subscription member will have one of the three roles available: subscriber, responder or administrator.

This means that you can have many members who are able, for example, to have alerts and reports, while fewer members have the ability to respond to stories.
