Purpose: You can now share access to your Sendcloud account with your employees, and limit their usage to only the parts of the platform which are relevant to their function. In this article we explain how you can manage and add new sub-users to your account with the user management feature.
The Sendcloud subscription plans have been updated. If the subscriptions shown in the banner above don’t match your current subscription plan and you’d like to know more, please click here.
You might have multiple employees who need access to Sendcloud features so they can process orders, but you may not necessarily want them to also have access to private information or account settings. That's why we've developed this beta version of the user management feature.
This feature allows you to add multiple users to a single Sendcloud account and assign them different roles.
What is a sub-user?
Sub-users automatically have access to a predefined view of the Sendcloud platform. They can be invited via email and once accepted they'll be visible in the panel as a sub-user. The access they have depends on the roles they've been assigned. Each sub-user can be assigned multiple roles. For example: the Shipping role and the Pickups role.
If a sub-user tries to access an area of the platform that they don't have access to, a pop-up window will inform them that their access is restricted and to contact the main account holder (admin) for assistance. Please note that by enabling agent login permission, you are also granting this permission to all sub-users associated with the main account.
Sub-users can have different roles assigned to them. Each role has different levels of access . In the table below you can find all the roles and a short description of what each role means.
|Admin||As an admin you have access to everything in your Sendcloud account. This includes manager all user roles within the panel.|
|Packer (legacy)||This role is a combination of the Customer Support role and the Shipping role. It focuses on label creation, managing pickups but Packer also gives access to support tickets.|
|Finance||The Finance role offers access to things like pricing, export reports, invoices and the subscription plans|
