The "Add new employee" button takes you to the employee creation form.
It has a dozen the following settings:
- First name and Last name. The name does not appear to customers, but is very helpful when you need to know who did what on your shop.
- Email address. If allowed to, the employee will receive customer's emails and PrestaShop's notifications on this address. It is also used as the account's login identifier.
- Password. Try your best to not make it obvious. You do not want an employee's account to be used by unknown people.
- Subscribe to PrestaShop newsletter. Subscribe to PrestaShop newsletter to receive e-commerce tips and news from the PrestaShop team.
- Default page. You can decide which page the user sees right after logging in. This could be the Stats page for SuperAdmins, or the Orders page for salespersons.
- Language. The default language, since your business might be done in English, but your logisticians might be from another country. Make sure to add the necessary languages, using the "Translations" page under the "International" menu.
- Active. You can temporarily and definitively disable an account. This enables you to create temporary accounts, for instance when you need help during the holidays or the shopping season.
- Permission profile. It is very important that you assign a correct profile to each employee account. A profile is tied to a set of permissions and access rights, and you should get to know the existing ones, listed in the "Profiles" page. The profile determines which part of your shop's back office the employee has access to; for instance, when the employee logs in, only the pages/menus that have been configured as accessible to his or her profile will be displayed. This is a very important setting.
