Ranks represent the structure of your community, and are used on Shivtr both as a title shown alongside a members name, and as a way to hand out permissions.

Creating Ranks
When you create a rank you choose a name and description, but you can also assign a Permission Role. If you do every member who belongs to this rank will inherit this Permission Role. You assign members to a rank here by moving them from Available to Assigned.

Members may only belong to one rank. If they already belong to a rank, they will not show in the Available Members list.

Re-order Ranks
You can re-order the ranks by clicking the Re-order button (wrench icon) on the ranks page, and then by drag-and-dropping the ranks into your preferred order.
