Now let’s talk about the different users of your business. Console typically allows you to set up accounts or profiles for your team members who would be operating the system. They include:
- System Admin
- Store Manager
- Supervisor etc
Depending on your business, you may also have the option to set user roles, which enable or restrict users from accessing certain features or information. For example, while administrators may have full control over the system, cashiers would only have access to the sell screen.
Go over the different roles in your business and set up your users accordingly.
To view and create users, navigate to Settings → General Settings → User Management. Already created users will be listed here.
