Your Access - Access Control

New Access Control option

We have added a new Access Control option called: New Add/Edit Employee

Managing Down

Managers with access to Add/Edit Employees, can not edit the Employee Profile for user that have access to Add/Edit Employees or Payroll or Setting.

This means managers only have access to staff that have less access than them selves.

Full Explanation

We're making some changes to make Access Control more flexible and with higher configurability.

Access to some areas will now be controlled by combining two or more different access fields.

The new approach means the area can have multiple views depending on what the user has access to.

This table shows the old and new requirements needed to gain access to these areas:


Reports - FinancialsReportsReports and Payroll
Reports - TimesheetReportsReports and Timesheet
Reports - RosterReportsReports and Roster
Reports - EntitlementsReportsReports and Leave
Employee Profile - FinancialsSettingsAdd/Edit Employees and
Payroll - Read Only
Employee Profile - Access Control
SettingsSettings and
Payroll - Read Only
Employee Profile - RemainderSettingsAdd/Edit Employees

Combining Payroll with other options is now the key way to provide access to sensitive financial information.


Groups can be limited to different areas:

Group ControlGroup UsageAccess required to add staff
AllUsed everywhereSettings, Payroll - Read Only
PayrollUsed in the payroll modulesSettings, Payroll - Read Only
RostersUsed in non payroll modulesSettings, Rosters
Self ManagedStaff can select the Groups they want to be inNo access required

When viewing the Employee Profile only staff with access to Payroll, will be able to access a Group set to either All or Payroll.

Middle management can now access the Employee Profile, without seeing payroll information or putting staff in payroll specific groups, they will only have access to Groups with Access set to Rosters.
