      1. Dashboard only access. Users can view and filter data, but not create Tags
      2. Dashboard + Tag Creation. User can view and filter data, and create Megaphone tags.

  4. In the Dashboard, self-manage creating and deleting tags that push to Megaphone as Advertising Tags
    1. Use GARM brand suitability, IAB contextual topics, and Named Entities data to create “Advertising Tags” for targeting orders in Megaphone (full inclusion & exclusion)
