The Participants Database plugin has its own set of access controls points where users can be allowed/disallowed to perform specific functions. On this page is a list of those functions and the context term used to identify them.
The “default role” column indicates the plugin (not WP) role that is allowed access to the action. The plugin roles are assigned to WP roles in the plugin settings under the admin tab. This allows the use of custom roles within the plugin, but defaults to using the common WP roles. These roles are the minimum role that can access the feature, roles with higher levels of privilege can also access those features.
