Specifically crafted to streamline your journey in creating a custom Glide App. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced app developer, this template is designed to simplify the app-building process, ensuring a smooth and efficient experience.

###Key Features:### User-Friendly Design: Our template offers an intuitive interface, making it easy for anyone to start building their app with minimal guidance. Powerful Role Hierarchy: A built in role hierarchy system that allows you to easily control user access, visibility and control of your app. Quick Start: Get started quickly with core features of user and role management already set up.

###Roles:### We have developed an innovative system that gives more flexibility to roles than comes out of the box with Glide.

Roles are organized into a hierarchical system that is numerically coded to define levels of responsibility and reporting structure. Here's an introductory overview of how your roles work:

####Role Hierarchy#### Each role within your organization is assigned a numeric value under the "Hierarchy" column. This number denotes the role's level within the organizational structure, with a lower number indicating a higher rank. This is how the default roles are configured within the starter app:

Manager: With a hierarchy number of 10, this is the highest level displayed. This role oversees the functions of the roles below it. Supervisor: Assigned a hierarchy number of 20, this role reports directly to the Manager and is responsible for the oversight of the Employee level. Employee: This role, with a hierarchy number of 30, is at the foundational level of the operational structure and reports to the Supervisor.

####Inheritance of Responsibility#### Roles inherit responsibilities and potentially permissions from roles lower in the hierarchy. This is documented in the "Inherits" column:

  • The Manager inherits responsibilities from the Supervisor and Employee roles, indicating that the Manager has oversight or is indirectly responsible for the tasks and functions of these roles.
  • The Supervisor inherits responsibilities from the Employee, which suggests that the Supervisor is tasked with the direct management of employees and their work.

####Practical Application####

  • Operational Clarity: The structure provides clear lines of reporting and accountability. Employees know whom they report to, and managers know who reports to them.
  • Access Control: The numerical hierarchy can be used to set up role-based access controls in your systems, where higher levels (lower numbers) have more access or permissions.
  • Scalability: This system allows for adding new roles or levels with ease by assigning them a hierarchy number that fits into the existing structure.
  • Simplicity in Management: The straightforward numerical system makes it easy to visualize the organizational chart and manage roles without complex relational data management.
