Modified on Thu, 27 Oct 2022 at 03:53 PM

If an Admin has been granted Admin Rights, they can also be allowed to make changes to another staff member's permissions. This is useful if your Admin has responsibility to manage your team of staff who are working in the field.


Note: As the business owner, you can restrict the levels of Admin access you grant, depending on whether the staff member has a Senior Admin or Junior Admin role.



Understanding Staff Permissions:

Staff Permissions allow you to fully customize the functionality available to particular staff roles within your business. Staff who are assigned work require the staff interface to complete their duties. Senior trusted staff may also require more access to certain scheduling or admin functions, particularly if they look after a team of sitters. In essence, Staff Permissions control which functions you give staff access to; the Interface Permissions control which modules staff can see.


Understanding Admin Permissions:

Admin Permissions allow you to fully customize the functionality and access available to particular admin roles within your business.

In essence, Admin Permissions control which functions you give staff access to; the Interface Permissions control which modules staff can see.
