A Role is a group of authorized actions or "Authorizations". Each employee can be assigned any number of Roles. Each authorization can contain a set of actions that users with that authorization can perform. For example, a "System Admin" authorization might contain the Employee Management action.
By default the system has several Roles created. A given Role may also have any actions assigned to or removed from it. The descriptions here are guidelines. Keep in mind you may edit your Roles or create brand new roles as you see fit.
Click Settings in the upper right hand corner. Choose Employee on the left hand side and then Employee Role Management. You can also type "user role management" in the global search box.
From this page you can Create, Edit, and even Delete Roles. Keep in mind that if you delete any roles, it will effect the employees linked to those.
To create a new role, click the "+" symbol. First type in the name you would like, the symbol or legend, a pretty color, and hit Save Role.
Next, select the new role you just created. On the left hand side you will see Authorizations and Settings. Choose the different Authorizations the Role should have by pressing the toggle next to each action. This page will save automatically.
