Creating Admin Users

Admin users are those individuals who are granted access to the Corporate Admin. Each admin user is granted access to Admin areas based on their "Role". Roles are related to the position an admin user has within your company (such as Customer Service Representative, Sales Manager, etc.).

Each Role is assigned various permissions that allow access to only the Admins areas relevant to an employee’s Role.

Create and Assign Roles

The Admin User Roles page is where you view and assign permissions to employee Roles or the position an employee has within your company (such as Customer Service Representative, Sales Manager, etc.). Using Roles allows you to tailor employee access to certain parts of the Corporate Admin. By default, you have a handful of pre-built Roles: Customer Service, Full Access, and Warehouse Manager, and Standard User.

Adding a New Role

    The Role pop-up window opens.

  2. In the pop-up, enter a Name.

    Such as Customer Service, Warehouse Manager, Standard User, etc.

  4. Select the Homepage for this role.  This is the first page that admin users with this role will see when they login to the Corporate Admin.
  5. Enable the relevant Permissions.
