This help page describes the structure of the Administration dashboard on the wrapsite server, where you control all your online resources in ExcelWraps.
Your wrapsite is stored on an ExcelWraps server which runs a content management system called Orchard. Using the CMS, you gain access to a lot of built-in functions including the ability to easily add new content to the wrapsite.
The User pages let you define your Users, Roles, Passwords, and Workgroups.
The Roles tab lets you define the roles you need. The Roles appear as checkboxes on the Users tab, to make it simple to just tick each Role a User has.
The Workgroups tab is where you define your user Workgroups. These Workgroups appear as a dropdown menu where you can assign each User to a Workgroup on the Users tab.
There is a special AdminWorkGroup role that allows AdminTenants to devolve user management to responsible people within the Workgroup.
Read more on the User administration help page.
All Wraps on the wrapsite are listed on the Wrap Definitions tab.
The Wrap Groups tab is where you define and manage your Wrapgroups. Each Wrap belongs to one or more Wrap Groups that define the permissions for each user role to access the Wraps in the group. You put a Wrap in a Wrapgroup by ticking the corresponding checkbox. A matrix allows you to permit each Workgroup various kinds of access to the Wraps in a Wrapgroup depending on the User’s Roles. Read more on the help page for Wrapgroups and Workgroups.
The Wrapsite Properties tab is used to download wrapsite information to a developer workstation that runs our WrapCreator add-in for Excel. The Wrapsite Properties sync WrapCreator to your wrapsite and should be updated regularly.
The Server Recalculation Queue is used when recalculating Wrap instances.
The Server Queue tab displays the job queue for background wrap jobs.

Since your Wrapsite is hosted on a full-blown content management system, you can create your own web page structure. When it comes to the creation and maintenance of this static web content, the Orchard CMS allows you to use different permissions for each User role.
In the navigation sidebar of the ExcelWraps Administration dashboard, you have the following useful shortcuts:
Content items like web pages and blog posts also have access controls that permit only particular user roles to manage the corresponding content. As an example, you may give managers permission to see a webpage containing telephone numbers of workers, but hide this information from unqualified users to protect worker privacy. The permissions for a content item are set on the Edit page for the item.
As with wrap access permissions, you can give each role permission to view the content, edit the content, publish the content, and delete the content. Access can be restricted to only certain Workgroups.
Each content item has an owner (the user that created the content). A bottom row of access controls below regulates the permissions for the user that owns the content item.
The above screenshot shows a content item permissions setting (for static content like a web page or a blog article). With these settings:
Your wrapsite will initially be configured to access the controls above but these are only some of the many features provided by Orchard.
Occasionally, AdminTenants may require access to less commonly used website controls including Modules, Site Settings, Themes, WorkFlows, Import/Export, Spam Controls, Custom Forms, Queries, Content Definition, Widgets, Tenants and Reports.
Permission to access these advanced features can be set on the wrapsite’s Administration dashboard > Users > Roles > AdminTenant.
