ControlPoint users generally fall into one of the following categories:
ControlPoint Application Administrator - A SharePoint administrator who also has responsibilities for managing ControlPoint configuration and permissions. A separate guide, the ControlPoint Administration Guide is intended specifically for use by ControlPoint Application Administrators when carrying out these tasks.
Administrator - A SharePoint administrator (generally an IT user) who has administrative responsibilities for site collections throughout the farm, but is not necessarily either a Farm Administrator or a ControlPoint Application Administrator.
Business Administrator (also known as a Site Administrator) - A business user responsible for administering his or her own SharePoint sites.
NOTE: Business Administrators have access to many, but not all ControlPoint features. For a complete list of ControlPoint menu options, including those that are not available to Business Administrators, see Default Menu Options for ControlPoint Users.
