Permissions Explained



Any good eCommerce Platform will allow you to apply Permissions groups to allow control over the level of access that each user has in the backend. This can be useful for only allow your sales team to create orders, but not apply discounts, or only allow your warehouse staff to process orders, not modify them.

In Neto, you can provide full access, or limit access to specific areas of the backend by modifying Permission Settings. Once your permission groups have been setup, each user can be assigned to the relevant group to modify their access.

Groups and User permissions can be updated at any time. The Permission Group Manager page allows administrators to view, create and edit staff user permission levels.

Configuring Neto Users

Permission groups allow you to control the level of access that each user has in the Neto backend. You can provide full access, or limit access to specific areas of the backend by modifying these settings.

By default there are 5 permission groups already set up in Neto. The permissions for these User groups are based on the normal access these type of users would need to be provided with.

They are as follows:

  • API User - Can access the API but not access the control panel. Assign this to API users and owners.
  • Admin User - Can do everything. Assign this to business administrators and owners.
  • Sales User - Can enter and edit orders, apply payments and manage customers. Assign this permission group to sales or customer service users.
  • Warehouse User - Can pick, pack and dispatch orders. Assign this permission group to warehouse users.
  • Dropship Warehouse User - Can pick, pack and dispatch orders. This user can only view and dispatch orderlines in their assigned warehouse.

All of these User Permission Groups can be edited to suit the access you want to provide to the people using your control panel, however you can also add your own permission groups if you want to.

The Permission Group Manager page allows administrators to view, create and edit staff user permission levels.
