Types of User Permissions

For each permission, you'll select the appropriate level of access for that role. Access levels include:

  • View & edit: The user will be able to access and edit the information in that section.
  • View only: The user can access the section in a read-only state.
  • No access: The user cannot see anything in that section.
  • Run & submit: This is unique to payroll permission and a two-step approval process should be enabled. A user can access the payroll screen, input data, and submit payroll for another user to review and approve before it gets processed.
  • Run & approve: This is unique to payroll permission. Run, submit, and approve payroll.
  • View & export: This is unique to Reports permissions. The user can modify the available filters and export functionalities (e.g., print, export to .CSV, export to QuickBooks, generate a share link) in the Reports section.
  • View-only (Reports): This is unique to Reports’ permission. A user can use the available filters but cannot use the export functionalities. They will not appear to users with this access level.
