Q: What do the different default Base Roles mean?
A: There are three options for the parent role. Here are the details of each role:
- Employee: The base employee role does not allow the employee to do the following things: delete sales, access sales settings, give discounts larger than the max discount, and edit employee roles.
- Manager: The base manager role does not allow the manager to delete sales.
- Admin: The base admin role has access to all aspects of the software.
Note: All base permissions will be overridden by the advanced employee permissions.
