Improved Editor Role
A channel editor is probably the biggest role any streamer can give a person, but the channel editor can't do as much as they should be allowed to do. A channel editor should be able to do more than just create highlights, run commercials,etc. When a person is promoted to a channel editor, that means the streamer gives them their ultimate trust. So what should an editor be able to do, but can't at this current time? Here are some ideas:
Moderate the moderators | Just as any other broadcaster can, a channel editor should be allowed to purge/timeout/ban moderators who are not channel editors. They should also in turn, be able to add/remove moderators. There may be cases where chat gets out of hand with not only the viewers but also some moderators, instead of the broadcaster having to deal with it, the channel editor should be able to so that the broadcaster can continue with his/her stream and not have to worry about chat drama.
Edit panels | There are times where streamers want to edit their panels, but either don't have the time to or don't know how to do something in particular. A channel editor should be able to edit the panels the way the broadcaster wants. Maybe there was typo a that looks unprofessional or an outdated piece of information that needs fixing.
Submit artwork for partnered streamers | A new emote slot opens up for a partnered streamer, and maybe the streamer isn't in a position to submit a new emote. Why not allow the channel editor to do so for the streamer? That way the new emote comes in right away instead of having to have people wait for a new emote.
There are other things that could be added to. Along side with this, an editor should have a badge of recognition. That way people know they aren't an ordinary mod.
Any idea when this might actually happen? My guy is super busy and I’m trying to help with as much as possible and being able to do all this will help tremendously!
This needs a bump. Editors should be able to edit panels, delete clips/VODs, and they should definitely be able to mod/unmod or VIP users. This is becoming a requirement in more than one stream for me.
Edit: Editors should also be able to edit the stream rules section under moderation.
Why is this taking so long if its planned? We need alot of these things.
Please make this happen!
It's already mid 2019, why is this not a thing yet?
Can an editor also give timeouts to user

Another way to access dashboards you edit is to go directly to the URL:
For the people wondering how to access other peoples dashboards your already and editor for. Go to your own dashboard- channel- permissions- channels you can manage as an editor and then the channel you want. this literally took me so long to find.
So many years and editor is still useless
I would love the ability to edit the channel's panels that I'm an editor on. It would definitely make the whole editor experience way more in depth and live up to the title "editor." With nightbot you can pretty much do everything that comes with being an editor on a twitch channel. Kind of disappointing in that aspect but who knows, maybe they'll add more features in the beginning.

I just became an editor for my friend and it is nice being able to help in certain aspects such as reruns, highlight and non-chat title/game changes. It would be nice to be able to help out more with panels and making/deleting mods if necessary. It would allow the streamer to continue streaming and not have to do any behind the scenes work.
I have the same question that Anna Quezada has. How do we actually see the perms we have as editors? I know there used to be an editing tab in the dashboard but it doesn't exist anymore. Are there even set options/settings for editors, or does that not exist anymore because there are so few options editors actually have available?
In addition to this, the editors should be able to add and remove VIP members. I am an editor and the streamer that I am an editor for was really disappointed when I couldn't add/remove mods or vips.

How can I access the editor options for the stream I'm an "editor" for? Permissions have been setup for me (I'm an editor for my husband, so I've looked at his page myself), but on my personal Twitch page I have no clue where to find access to his panels, so I don't have to use his machine to update info. Any help?

Hi all, I'm a product manager in the VOD team. This is a great idea and we're looking into improving editors.

I was really hoping this would be implemented before the VIP badge.

How is this still not a thing?

Why is this suggestion not gaining immediate traction? A channel editor is essentially useless right now. 99% of the things an editor should be able to do are not available. Streamers are good at streaming and need editors to handle tasks for them if necessary.
