ResourceFlex comes out-of-the-box with 4 Predefined Roles, but you can always add additional roles and manage (change?) the access right of all existing roles except the Admin role. This feature is available at Settings > Roles menu item. Below is a list and short description of the access rights of the predefined roles:
- Admin – this role provides users with full access to everything in the system. Users with this status can create, manage and delete everything.
- Project Manager – this role provides users with full access to the resources (users with role employee) so that they can book resources for some period of time or allocate resources on the project where they are assigned as project manager.
- Office Manager - this role provides users with full access to the Bank holiday records and day-off (absence?) records, allowing them to create, manage, approve/reject them or even delete them. Office manager status provides the user with access to all employee, employment and contract information so that they can create new resources in the resource pool or manage the information of existing resources.
- Employee - this role provides users with full access to allocations on which they are assigned and on the day-off (absence?)requests that are created from them or for them. Each user who has some of the previous roles will have the same access rights as the Employee role, meaning that even Project Managers and Office assistants can see their allocations and are able to request a day off.
