Adding and Managing Parties in the Application

Adding Parties to Your Application

Assigning Roles and Permissions

Upon adding parties, the applicant has the capability to define each party's role and the extent of their permissions:

  1. Modifying Party Cards: Only parties granted modification permissions by the applicants can alter the party card. This includes deciding the role they will play in the application. A screenshot of a computer

  2. Access Permissions:
    • Applicant and Agent Roles: These roles automatically receive full permissions to the application, allowing for a broad range of actions, including submission.
    • Other Roles: Roles such as Designer, Property Owner, or Payer may have more limited permissions. However, specific permissions like "modify application" or "add new applications" can be granted to enhance their involvement.

Detailed Permissions

  • Modify Application: This permission allows the party to edit the application workspace but does not include the ability to submit the application. It's ideal for roles that require active participation in the application's preparation.
  • Add New Applications: Enables parties to initiate supplemental applications within the current project, expanding the project's scope based on evolving needs.
  • Visibility of Fees & Payments: The "Fees & Payments" section is accessible to Applicants, Agents, Property Owners, and Payers, ensuring transparency and accountability in financial matters.

Saving Changes

  • Cloudpermit automatically records any adjustments made to the party card, streamlining the process and ensuring that all modifications are immediately reflected within the system.


Managing party roles and permissions in Cloudpermit is designed to be intuitive, offering applicants control over who can access and contribute to their applications. By following the steps outlined above, users can ensure that their application process is inclusive, collaborative, and efficient.
