What are applications
Applications are the different functions on the Jotter system. For example, the Site app is a website editor, the Files app lets you upload and store files for publishing on the site app or share between users.
Each application has a set of abilities which you can assign to different roles. For example, you can assign the Teacher role (a user type) to the application role (functionality type) of publisher. The publisher role lets users edit and save pages directly to the internet. This publisher role is a set of abilities that each app has, and can be customised to suit your particular needs.
