Changes to access to WordCamp budgets

Today we made a small change to the budget tools on WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. sites to allow more user account types to have access. Several people had requested this change so that more organizers and volunteers for a WordCamp could be involved in financial discussions without having to give everyone admin accounts.

Before, all of the budget tools were limited to users with the Administrator role on a WordCamp site. Now, the Author and Editor roles will also have access, though with some restrictions. They can:

  • View the preliminary and working budgets, but not save changes or submit for review.
  • Create sponsor invoices, reimbursement requests, and vendor payment requests, but not view/change items of these types that were created by other users.

No changes were made to the Administator level of access.
