ARMS Process Roles define a user's role or roles within your department. Process Roles can be leveraged in a number of ways, as detailed below.

Process Roles differ from Access Roles. Access Roles define the functions and pages within ARMS that a user has access to, whereas Process Roles define their role within the many processes that occur in the department. For instance, many users may share the same common Access Role (ie: Departmental Administrator) but have varying Process Roles (ie: Academics, Financial Aid, Facilities, SID).

What do Process Roles do?

Assigned process roles provide access to:

  • Access to Launch/Assign workflow forms and packets

  • Approving steps within workflow forms

  • Receive Automated Form Notifications via Email
