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 Maybe there was typo a that looks unprofessional or an outdated piece of information that needs fixing.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.
There is another submission regarding discord-like roles/permissions and that is what this should really be. Channels should be able to have a few roles.. Super Mod, Mod, VIP for example (the names don't really matter) that permissions can be assigned to.
Essentially anything in the streamer dashboard that doesn't reveal personal information should be able to be ticked on or off for a role, as well as any in-chat functions including all / commands and new functions like predictions. There are plenty of examples out there in the form of chatbots and discord that show not only how this could be implemented but the demand.
For larger channels this is long, long overdue. Its a bit nuts that channels large enough to actually employ moderators have no ability to let others manage these elements of their stream and channel without providing them their credentials.
Additionally, they should be able to edit channel points as well as VIP badges. I can't count how many times an idea has been made and would be nice for an editor to easily go into settings and swap VIP roles and channel point redemptions while the streamer is busy.
Seriously, its almost 2022... 4 years for this on a planned status and 6 years since the idea is posted.
Gives you something to think about...
In addition to all the other items listed here, Editor view in the Twitch dashboard doesn't seem to be as comprehensive as Mod view. For example, in Editor view I can view/snooze ads for a channel I'm an Editor for, but I cannot easily view the users in chat or gift subs as I can in Mod view. The ability to gift subs simply isn't there in Editor view, and Mods cannot snooze/run ads as the panel is not available in mod view. There needs to be better cross-over when somebody has multiple roles so that they can be effective from one page instead of needing to have multiple pages open for their different roles.
Yes add this yesterday
Adjusting channel points would be greatly appreciated for editors to edit.
I'd rather see mods do more.
- adjust channel points.
- Edit profiles in a better language. for whom a particular language is not fluent. or due to stroke disease
- Being able to do everything Except seeing stats, and deleting accounts. Mods can never delete an account only the creator host of a channel.
It would be great if editors can also start Predictions! This would be very helpful and useful.
Please also allow editors to change the 'go live' notification
It should be implemented, this has had planned status since forever
@hurryslowly that could be achieved via the API and a custom tool btw
I also agree with the latest suggestion of editors being able to manage channel point rewards. There's been more than a few times when I've seen channel point redeems get redeemed more often or behave differently than the streamer was expecting, and it would be nice to have the ability to change cooldown times and deactivate/activate rewards, or even just change rewards when the streamer changes their game.
Can I add another suggestion to Editor Role ? Manage Channel Points Rewards (Add / Edit / Delete / Replenish / Turn it on/off).
I don't think channel editor needs an exclusive badge. But I agree with other suggestions (Edit panels, moderate mods...)
Or you can change Channel Editor to Video Editor and create a new "administrative" role with more powers than channel editor, where streamer choose what "privileges" he wants to give to his admins.
Twitch is doing a great work updating a lot of stuffs (mod's view for example). But some things need to be updated asap.
Yes please. Right now if I have to make changes I either need the streamer awake to walk them through it or they have to give me their log in details which becomes a hassle. This would make things simpler.
Wholly agree with many of the post/comments. As streaming is becoming more and more mainstream, a lot more streamers have management now and it would be super convenient for us to be able to access a lot of the backend without needing to bother the streamer. Let the talent focus on the content; let the management focus on the boring admin!
Very well said! Super similar to what I wrote the other day, https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/923380-moderation-tools/suggestions/42370729-new-roles-stream-manager-administrator
Agree with these guys editors should have more privileges. They could help the streamer so much more with more privileges.
There are so many settings in the Dashboard that an Editor can't see. If Editor is more focused on Editing/Managing videos then perhaps a totally different role should be made that basically gives an individual access to the entire dashboard/backend (with permission settings so that a streamer can limit access to financial data for example).
The inability to access various dashboard areas greatly reduces our ability to help streamers grow.
For example: Worrying about data/numbers can be extremely stressful for many and if someone else could access that information then they could help the streamer make informed decisions.
Definitely think this should be addressed again by Twitch immediately and accelerated.
Also, Streamers should have full control over permissions. All permission should be defaulted on, but if streamers feel that it’s necessary, they should be able to turn permissions off. There’s no reason why an Editor role couldn’t be customizable based on what the channel owner needs.
This post has been planned for nearly 2 years, and I cannot imagine why it hasn't been implemented yet. Please, please, please we need either an updated Editor role or a completely new Manager role! So many of my friends and streamers I moderate for are simply too busy to update many of their emotes/panels, etc. In my opinions, this updated Editor (or completely new Manager role) needs the following permissions:
- Current Editor & Moderator privileges.
- Moderate moderators, and the ability to add/remove moderators/VIPs.
- Access to an Audit log for all changes made to the Broadcaster's channel.
- Ability to edit and delete clips.
- Ability to manage subscriber emotes, bits emotes, loyalty badges, bits badges, cheermotes, and channel points rewards (including creating/removing rewards, community challenges, and ability to upload artwork).
- Ability to edit Twitch panel artwork and text.
- Edit/Create chat rules.
- Edit Auto-host list and ability to host/raid.
