Should you have people helping you with your shop, be they your spouse, friends or paid employees, you should make sure to create an employee account for each of them, if only to know who is responsible for which action. The other advantage is that you can give them specific profiles and specific access rights to the administration pages: for instance, you might not want everyone to have access to your statistics, your invoices or your payment settings.
To create a new employee profileaccount, go to the "Administration" menu, select "Employees", and click the "Add new" button. Fill in a name, such as "Martin Doe" or "Shipping handler", and save.
Now that you have a proper account for this employee, you should give it specific permissions, tailored to the profileaccount's activity. A profile An account can be used for as many people as needed – but we do advise you to create one for each helping person.
To assign permissions to an employee profile, account, you must use the "Profile" option in the account creation page.
You can edit these permissions this way: go to the "Administration" menu, select "Permissions", and select the profile you just createdwant to change. A long list of permissions appears.
You can create as many profiles as needed, by using the "Profiles" page in the "Administration" menu, and then clicking on "Add new". Type de profile's name, validate it, then go edit its permission in the "Permissions" page.
By default, a new profile cannot do much. It is up to you to set exactly the parts of your shop to which that employee profile should have access to. It can be a tedious task, but it is an important one.
