Moderators can moderate inputs in the 'Input Detail' screen.
To moderate an input you must have been assigned the role Moderator.
The Process Owner who sets up the crowd will automatically be assigned the role Moderator by ATC.
A moderators role is to review all inputs as they are received, edit them if required, delete them if appropriate and allocate them to the correct owner.
Until an input has been moderated it is considered 'Locked' and only its author and the moderators are able to view it. Once an input is allocated to an owner, they are able to view it and set its input visibility to allow the appropriate viewing permissions.
If there is only one Process Owner in a crowd then all inputs are automatically owned by them - without the need for allocation by the Moderator.
