Access Control

By default, each user can read their own data only, while the supervisor can read subordinate's records.

However, you can create the scenario for your company through the control on access rules, transfer control and access groups.


Hierarchy Access

The system provides the following 3 types of access rights on subordinates' records:

  1. Read records

Access Group

As mentioned above, you can control the data access between different user roles, but how about some users instead of all users within the same group?

You need to create new access groups at the section of User in Admin panel.

Following are the common groups:


Boss and Secretary Secretaries always need to handle tasks from boss, so they may need to search data and distribute sales lead for him.
Team Based Users They works as a team, so may need to share records to other users.
