When an employee's role in the company changes, often their permissions do as well. This article will show you how to change the permissions that are granted an employee in the Awardco system.
NOTE: For the purposes of this article, the terms "role" and "permissions" are interchangeable. What the account is allowed to do (its permissions) directly correspond with the role assigned the employee. For example, an Admin has permission to change the information on another employee's account while someone listed as Employee will only be able to edit their own account.
Sign in to Awardco. Select Admin > Users.
Select the name of the User you want to edit.
Select the menu next to Role. Make your changes. Select Submit.
Step by Step Instructions
Begin by signing into your company's Awardco website. You will be brought to the front page of your account: My Profile. Once your account has loaded, select Admin just under your name near the top right corner of the screen.
NOTE: Your screen may look different than the one displayed below. The screen should show your company's logo and preferred color scheme. However, as long as you see your name in the top right hand corner, you will be able to make your desired changes.
Once the Admin page loads you will be able to see the Admin tab options displayed just under your company logo near the top left corner of the screen. Select Users to continue.
Once you click Users you will be able to see the employees in your organization. Scroll down the list until you find the User whose permissions you are trying to edit.
When you click the Name of the employee you are trying to edit, their profile overview will drop down, ready to edit. In their information there is a field called Role where you will see their current permissions.
Next to Role, click their current role to open the drop down menu (in the example provided, the current role is listed as Employee and so, to open the drop down menu you would click Employee). The menu will drop down showing the possible role options. When the menu drops down, a check will be next to their current role. To make your desired changes, simply select the appropriate role.
Once your changes have been made, remember to press Submit. If Submit is not pressed, the changes will not be saved into the system.
If you need to make other changes to an employee's account, please see the guide provided in the article titled, How to Change Employee Email, Password, and Username.
