How do I grant access to only certain areas in the admin?
This article will show you how to provide/restrict access to only select area(s) in the admin.
The first thing that you will want to do is create a new group (People > More > User Groups & Permissions) by clicking on the "Add New Group" button.
Next you will give your new group a name and assign permissions to it. Use the arrows in the middle to move the permissions from right to left.
In the example above we have given our sales staff access to Marketing, Orders and People and of course Login to Admin. View allows them to see but not edit information, Edit allows them to make changes in those areas.
Please note: that by design, the permissions will grant access to the entire section that you select...ie, you cannot pick and choose individual areas to restrict/grant access. For example, you cannot have your users view just "Manufacturers" under People...it's all or nothing.
Lastly, you will "Edit" the user(s) that you would like to assign to the group you created. Scroll down to the "Groups" section and use the arrows to assign the group to the user(s).
Don't forget to save your changes.
So, with the example we created above, any member of the sales staff will only see the above menus when they login to their account.
