User Roles and Permissions Explained
Learn how our Roles settings work in shopVOX to prevent team members from accidentally messing with settings they shouldn't be.
What are Roles?
User roles are how you set permissions and internal controls inside your shopVOX account.
This gives your account added security, and allows you to tailor each users experience to one that fits their role in your company, and hide those that do not.
We load the following Roles as defaults to give you a good starting point.

What are Permissions?
A Role is defined by set of Permissions and each Permission is explained below in detail.
