At times, you may need to adjust the permissions for staff added to your partner portal to give them greater visibility of clients and access to more administrative tasks. Staff permissions can be easily adjusted.
A quick reference on staff permissions is below:
To adjust a staff member’s permissions:
- In the Partner Portal, click on Admin Settings>Staff from the dropdown box. In the staff screen, click on the profile of the relevant staff member.
- In the staff member’s profile window, select the role that suits the level of permissions required in the ‘Roles’ section (roles outlined below).
Owner: all available permissions
Account Administrator: can manage communications, preferences, campaigns and billing, but cannot add team members or change security features
Partner: can add clients and assign Certified Consultants, but no access to admin settings
Manager: can add clients and assist with the client file
Basic: can only view client accounts: no ability to edit details or send documents for signing
