Applications can have a number of User Types, creating these enables the developer to select which type of user has certain permissions. As an example, a general user may only have access to a Main View of an application and some tabs may be restricted for particular User Types while a User Type with Administrative permissions may have access to every view (ie. Main View and Administration) and all content in the application.)
