  • What are Role Permissions?

    Shape comes out of the box set up for best practices in your industry but because not every company operates the same way, Shape gives you the ability to customize what each user role has access to manage in the system. Define what admins, managers and basic users are able to access and do on your system.

    Navigate to Settings in the top navigation bar and you will find Role Permissions under “Users and Permissions.”

    Role Permissions:

    Choose what admins, managers and basic users are able to access and do on your system by using the check boxes. A checked box means that that user role has access to that particular area of the system or settings page.

    When you are happy with the changes, make sure you press “Submit” to apply the changes to your system.

    Note: Admin roles will have access to all permissions and pages available on the Role Permissions Settings page.
