Creator accounts have all the permissions of the User role, and can also add content, workshops, external content, and learning tracks as well create workflows and assignments.
External User (optional):
The External User role is used to limit access within Continu. Accounts with the External User role can only view content, workshops, and learning tracks that have been specifically segmented to them.
