Best practices for managing permissions

Your Funnel account contains a great deal of personal information about families, so it's essential you keep Funnel as secure as possible.

Our recommendations:

  • Give each user their own login connected to their own email address. Do not allow users to share logins.

  • Only give users permission to access the functions they need, and keep everything else restricted.

  • If a staff member leaves your school, remove their user login immediately. Note that you may need to remove them from any associated automations before they can be deleted from the account.

  • If a staff member changes position within the school, review their permissions and consider changing what is no longer appropriate.

  • Regularly review your user list and each user’s permissions, adjusting as needed.

  • Be especially careful with giving users “Admin” permissions, as this will allow users to add and remove other users and give them access to all features and data. Usually, a school only needs two “Admin” level users.

  • Consider adding 2FA (two-factor authentication) to Funnel. See What is two-factor authentication? for more information.

  • Consider adding SSO (single sign-on) to Funnel. This validates user logins against your staff directory. See SSO for Funnel for more information.
