Welcome to the Pharmacy OneSource Forums & Blogs! The forums are permissions based - what you see on the community is determined by the permissions you have been granted.
Some of the permissions are earned through a ranking structure as a member becomes more active and involved in the community. Rankings are based on a variety of different measurements. As a member progresses through the ranks they will acquire different ranking names which may also grant them extended privileges on the community.
Other permissions are granted by roles which designate a specific group of members. Pharmacy OneSource customers can request access to view, post, and reply to posts in our customer only product areas. Click here to request customer access.
Other members of the Pharmacy OneSource community have special roles. Icons representing these groups appear next to each members screen name. Here is a short summary of the different groups with special permissions/access:
Transparency is important in our community. All Pharmacy OneSource employees are clearly identifiable with this icon.
Moderators are identified by this icon. We have several moderators for different areas of the Pharmacy OneSource community. Our moderators help to maintain a positive and healthy environment on the community by enforcing community guidelines, responding to abuse reports, managing members’ posts and responding to member suggestions and requests.
Community Administrators and the Community Manager are represented by this icon. Administrators can grant and remove member permissions. In addition to granting permissions, the Community Manager creates and manages all aspects of the community structure including set up and maintenance of forums (a.k.a. boards), blogs and announcements as well as the layout (or look and feel) of the community.
