You are able to have several users accounts enabled in the admin panel of your website. Each one of these users can have specific permissions set to them (e.i. Administrator, Sales Rep, Accounting, and etc.).
Before you add a new user, you will need to determine their "Role" and define their set of permissions. If the role was not created prior, this will have to be done first.
To create new role:
Navigate to SYSTEM > PERMISSIONS > ROLES
Click "Add New Role" in the top right corner.
Add a name for the role and enter the admin password.
Once info section is completed you move to Role Resources.
You will then checkmark all sections of the admin panel that you wish to give that role access to.
To add new user:
**Note: Only administrators can add new users
Navigate to SYSTEM > PERMISSIONS > USERS
Click "Add New User" button in the top right corner.
Now you will fill out all the information for the user you are adding.
Make sure the account is set to Active.
Once info section is completed, you will need to assign a user role.
Select the role you just created, or choose a previously created role.
This user will now only have permission to access the features granted for their assigned role.
- Example: If you created a Sales Rep role and only granted access to the Sales related features, the user assigned to the Sales Rep role won't have access to Customers, Promotions, Newsletter or CMS settings.
