User Roles

Types of Roles

Spoke has four roles, each with different levels of permissions. You can access and edit these roles from the People page of the administration dashboard.


A texter is a member of your organization, often a volunteer, who is able to text contacts in a campaign. Texters use the texter dashboard to request conversation assignments and send messages.
Texters are responsible for sending initial messages and responses to contacts, as well as answering survey questions as the conversation progresses. Marking survey data is an essential part of keeping a contact list up-to-date, and sets you up for more tailored conversations in future texting campaigns.


A supervolunteer has partial access to the administration dashboard. They can help review and reassign conversations in Message Review, as well as help approve requests from the Assignment Requests page. Supervolunteer accounts have the same ability as texters to request conversations and text contacts.


An administrator (or admin) is a member of your organization who can create, modify, and manage campaigns and who has expanded access to the administration dashboard. Administrator accounts have the same ability as texters to request conversations and text contacts.


An owner has full access to the organization and may manage organization settings, shortlink domains, and bulk operations. They have full access to the administration dashboard. Owner accounts have the same ability as texters to request conversations and text contacts.
