By default, the leader of the group that controls the convention has all of the privileges for the convention (and the bank account for the group leader will be used for any convention payments). Directors of that group have all of the privileges for the convention, except for access to the information about the bank account. However, you often have users who are not leaders or directors in the group that need access to just a specific portion of convention functionality, and that's where privileges come in. 

With privileges, you can search for any user by username, real name, or email address and add them to your convention. Then you can assign them one or more of the following privileges:

Point of Sale Access to the cash register functions that are used at the registration desk of your convention.
Registration Access to badge and ticket management functions, including CSV exports, and the badge designer.
Scheduling Access to event submissions and event scheduling functions.
Exhibitors Access to exhibitor management.
Merch Access to convention merchandise management and sales information.
News Updates The ability to publish updates to your blog and email them out to all of your attendees.
Pages The ability to add additional pages and links to your convention's navigation.
Financials Access to receipts, ledger entries, and financial statistics. Can also refund purchases.
Cash Drawers Access to cash drawers administration view; can close, verify, and reopen cash drawers.  (No access to other financials sections.)
Everything Access to all of the above as well as all of the various convention settings.  Can also assign new privileges to other users.

How to add Privileged Users to your Convention

To grant users  privileges  to access to certain areas of your convention, you will go to Convention Tools > Convention Setup > Privileges.

You will see the option to Add Privileged User. Anyone you wish to add to your convention as a privileged user will need to have an account on the Tabletop Events site. You can add them by searching for them using their email address, username, or name.
You can then select the privileges you want that person to have.

When a privileged user is logged into their account and goes to the conventions page, they will see the Convention Tools Dropdown Menu. In that menu, they will see the options that are available to them.

*Note:  Privileged users will only have access to their convention privileges until the convention ends.  After the end of the convention, only the leader and directors of the group under which the convention was created will continue to have access to the convention tools.
