Table of Contents
Roles allow you to manage access to specific areas of the platform for employee users. Everflow clients can add an unlimited number of employee users, and the Roles feature allows for each user to have customized access to the platform based on their job responsibilities. Sections of the platform can be hidden for sensitivity reasons, or to simplify the dashboard of a user with a more narrow scope.
Some areas of the platform even allow for different levels of access:
Full Access: Allows the user to add, edit, etc.
Read Only: Allows the user to simply view the selection
This article demonstrates how to create a Role, and how to assign a Role to a user account.
How To Create A Role
Navigate to Control Center - Accounts > Roles.
Click [ + Role ].
Name the Role and choose any combination of permissions.
Click the checkbox for All permissions, if desired. Or, click the > to expand and customize access within each section.
Restricting Access For Certain Roles
Below, we'll show a few examples for different combinations of permissions based on types of Roles:
People working in finance likely only need access to the Invoice and Reporting Adjustments sections. Removing the other permissions simplifies their menu to show only these areas.
Data Analysts usually only need access to Reporting and Analytics. Keep read only access for Offers and Partners to allow full reporting accessibility.
Account Managers typically need access to Offers, Partners, and/or Advertisers, as well as Reporting and Analytics features. However, you may want to restrict permissions for adding/editing to AMs who are still learning, or who you consider a Junior AM versus a Senior AM.
Senior Account Manager
The AM in this case has full access to the Offer and Partner sections.
Junior Account Manager
The AM in this case has read only access to the Offer and Partner sections.
