Check out the following articles to learn more about Partner and Customer User Accounts:
Managing Staff permissionsBack to top
By default, new accounts are configured with Administrator (Admin) privileges. This gives the account full access to the system, including features and functionality listed within the Manage menu.
Disabling or enabling the accountBack to top
The account can be Enabled or Disabled using this setting. Staff Users cannot log in if the account is Disabled.
Enabling Admin (or restricted) permissionsBack to top
The Admin control can be turned off so that you can view and restrict Staff members' Permissions.
With Admin Permissions disabled, the categories of system Permissions are made accessible. By default, all listed Permissions are selected. Restricted Users do NOT have access to the Manage menu.
Determining product/item and Category access restrictionsBack to top
You can also restrict Staff Account access by Category or Product/Item. By default, all Products/Items and Categories are selected.
Remove the check mark next to the Category or Product/Item to remove access. Don't forget to Save your changes!
Use the Select All and Select None buttons to add or remove all permissions with one click rather than selecting each permission individually.
Expanding and collapsing sectionsBack to top
Click on the Expand/Collapse icon at the top of the Permissions list to quickly and easily Expand and Collapse the permission sections in one move!
Staff accounts with restricted product/item and category permissions may not automatically have permission to access newly created products/items and categories.
Permissions should be reviewed to ensure that Staff accounts have the correct ones enabled.
Staff Account permission functionality differs between items and products. To learn more about the differences, view the following article:
Archiving Staff accountsBack to top
Staff Accounts can be archived if no longer needed or created in error. Simply click the Archive button found at the bottom of the Edit Account page.
Archived accounts are found with the Staff Accounts list if you filter by the Archived status. From there, you can Edit the Account and Unarchive the Staff member.
Archived Staff Accounts do not count toward total Staff Accounts. If you archive a Staff Account, this opens up a space for a new Staff Account!
