About Role Permissions

Role Permissions are an effective way for you to manage what your users can view and access. For example, you can hide Margin and Profit information on a Sales Order page and View Sales Order pages.

You cannot suppress functions at line level, but you can suppress a number of pages. See below for more information.

Adding User Roles

You need to add a user role to Unleashed before you can adjust Role Permission settings.

To do so,

  1. Go to Settings | Security | Role Permissions.
  2. Once there, you can add User Roles by entering some text and clicking Add.

The Can Edit option is only available on the Unit Price field for Sales Orders and Quotes

How to hide Margins/Profits/Costs

You can suppress specific information that you do not want your users to gain access on either the Sales Orders (Margin or Profit) and/or View Sales Orders (Average Profit, Costs and Total Profit) pages.

  1. Go to Settings | Role Permissions
  2. Select the role that you want from the Role drop-down menu.
  3. From the Roles Permissions page, select Sales from the tree menu.
  4. Scroll down and select from the Sales Order or View Sales Order menus—the various menu items you want to suppress.
  5. Click on the green lock icon to lock the item (it will become grayed out when selected). As the screen shot indicates, you can select from Margin or Profit from the Sales Order. And Average Profit, Costs and Total Profit from View Sales Orders.

When these settings are applied, the selected option will become hidden from view for the specified role.
