What can captains do?

Many chapels find it helpful to share administrative responsibilities with other adorers without sharing all of the administrative privileges. For example, you might want "team captains" responsible for coordinating the hours on a given hour or range of hours throughout the week.

For these scenarios, use the Captain Role!

Captains have elevated privileges above normal adorers but less than administrators.

Assign the Captain role to an adorer

💡 Pro Tip: As an administrator, create a test captain account and sign in to see what captains can see! You can also do this as an adorer.

Finding All Captains

To view a list of your captains, visit Admin » Adorers and enable the Role filter. Captains have an empty shield icon, and administrators have a shield icon with a cross.

Additional Considerations

Captains can receive hourly assignments for the hours they are responsible for, share their contact information with adorers, and view a roster page of commitments and substitutes for those hours.
