Assigning roles is important in a process for back-checking and viewing individual responsibilities. It is used in project- or program-specific processes, not for the metamodel.
To assign a role to a user:
- Go to the specific role in the workspace
- Click the three dots on the top-right
- Click 'Add'
- Type the user in the text box and click who you want to assign
All assigned roles are visible on the user's profile.
