New Roles and Permissions

Another exciting new feature has just gone live!

In response to requests from many clients, we have increased the number of roles that you can assign to users on the system, each of which has a different set of associated permissions that determines what the user can see and do on the system.

Previously, you were only able to restrict the access of users to certain companies / payment frequencies / pay points. You will now still be able to do this… and more! There are now three possible roles that you can assign to a user: Admin, Leave Admin and Approval Only.

All existing users on the system will, by default, be assigned the Admin role. Therefore, they will still be able to do exactly what they were able to do in the past. Additionally, any restrictions to companies / payment frequencies / pay points that you had previously put in place, will still be in effect.

The two new roles – Leave Admin and Approval Only – were designed to make your life easier and give you more flexibility. For example, you can assign the Leave Admin role to someone who only administers leave but should not have access to any salary information, or someone who should only be able to approve leave / info update requests, can be assigned the Approval Only role.

However, if you have no need for these new roles, you can ignore these changes and continue as you did before – with all users having the Admin role.

Please note: this new feature has necessitated some terminology changes on the system: previously, we used to talk about multiple “roles” that could be associated with an email address. However, now we will refer to multiple “users” being associated with that email address. More information about multiple users is available here.

As always, your feedback will be highly valued, especially since we are considering adding more roles in the future.
