    Default Can you have 'users' for your site and them not be able to see everything?

    I was wondering if anyone can help me and tell me how I do this, if I can.

    I need to have someone help me by putting new products, catagories, etc.. on the site, however I'd only like them to have access to certain areas of the site and them not see, for example, the orders and amounts people have spent.

    Is it possible that you can have this, or do they have access to the entire site? Any info you could give would be really helpful.

    Thank you.

    if you go into the admin manager you can create a new admin user and also select/deselect the areas you want them to see.

    Lovely, thanks, have just set one up. Can I ask if ther eis anything that you would not let your employees have access to on the site? I've taken off the Order Manager and the Admin Manager - I assume that everything else would be fine for someone to have access to.

    It's like letting someone have your baby when you've always worked and run your business alone. I am a bit scared about it.

    lol, i know exactly how you feel. those are the two areas that i would stop them having access to. that should do it

    just tell them not to tinker unless you have said so

    Be the best thing you did, so long as you train them up properly. Most mistakes will come from the fact that you do not tell them what you want them to do and how you want them to do it properly.

    I would have set them on packing and orders first tho, then let them have more access as they get use to the system.
    If you are using Sagepay then they can't see card details anyway.
    Regards
