Important to note: Only users that have the permission to "EDIT OTHER USERS" or "EDIT ROLES" can change user settings.

Setting up staff with billing permissions can be done in two ways:

  • Selecting the Specific User Permissions required to bill, and/or

  • Creating a specific Role (for example: Billing admin)
