Custom Administrator Permissions - to define new admin roles and access permissions depending on an organization needs
Currently there are set administrator "roles." If an organization's administrators don't fall neatly into these roles, then they end up with either too many or not enough permissions. It would be nice to be able to customize administrator roles, and determine whether that type of admin has full access, read-only access, or no access to all of the items described in the tables on the Site Administrators help page. I.e. A page to create/edit a role with radio selection to determine access for that role for each feature of the site. This would be immensely helpful for reducing clutter for administrators that don't need to see certain features and menu tabs. http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Managing+site+administrators

I agree with needing limited administrative rights

This would be helpful for us. We would like to give an event manager just the necessary permissions without having broad access to financial information, the ability to email the entire membership, etc.

Thank you Evgeny for the comment and support. Yes, I saw several other posts requesting specific permission sets, and figured this would be a good way to address everyone's admin permission needs, including our own organization's. Thanks for the consideration.

I fully support , Liz. This is exactly how I was planning to resolve a number of accumulated various roles requests. Thanks for posting.
But we will have to keep in the wishlist for now.
Maybe this will come when there is an ability to secure files, and not just the webpage.
I think it is a good idea.

We would like to allow certain key members (such as committee chairs) to have read-only admin access. But the current definition of read-only includes the ability to download the full contact list of the organization.
Our organization has over 4,000 names on our contact list. Even though we trust the people to whom we would give access, it feels inappropriate to give this capability to anyone but full admins. Frankly, I'm not even really sure why this is the case today?
We would like to have an administrator role capable of viewing and editing contact details, checking and updating membership status, and processing event registrations. However, we would like this role to NOT be able to see any donation information. This is basically the Membership and Events Manager roles but without any donation access.
Our situation is this: we have education staff who run education events. They need to know if someone is a member, be able to process a renewal, etc. They also need to be able to add attendees, print attendee lists, etc. But we don't want them to see the donation info of any of the event participants. We want that information to be limited to our development staff.
Ideally education staff would only be able to manage education events (we have development events, too). Right now we're ok with them being able to see (and theoretically manage) development events, but a cleaner separation would be nice. I know this is on the wishlist as per this thread: http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8827180-event-manager-for-specific-events-only-with-limite
Also, this request is similar to a request for limiting event manager access to financial information to events only: http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308929-general-discussion-and-questions/suggestions/8822770-limiting-event-manager-access-to-financial-mgmt-to
