Delegated Team Management

With Delegated Team Management, you can give your managers the ability to manage your current and future team members, including permission sets, while limiting their access to sensitive account information like bank account and tax details.

Team members with the Manage Team Members permission enabled can:

  • View permissions associated with each permission set
  • Assign new and existing team members to permission sets and locations they’ve been given access to manage
  • Edit team member information, including job titles, personal information and passcodes

Changes to permissions within roles can only be edited by an Owner or Administrator.
