Personalize. Segment. Delight.

Go beyond static: DNN Dynamic Roles for the DNN CMS.

Learn more

Use DNN's role system for segmentation and advanced personalization: Beyond statically assigning users to roles, the DNN Dynamic Roles module allows for defining criteria which adjust role memberships dynamically.

For instance, you can define rules which assign a user to a role when a certain cookie is present, a parameter is matched, the access comes from a certain region, or a user has visited a specific website before (referrer). Vice versa, users are automatically removed from the roles they have been assigned to as soon as criteria don't match anymore.

These roles can be used just as the regular ones: For example, you can define which pages and modules can be viewed by which role.
