For merchants leveraging our In-Store Returns solution, there are two roles specific to Store Managers and Associates. Additional details are outlined in our "What roles and permissions can be set for store staff?" article.
Access by User Role
Each role has specified full or limited access to dashboard sections:
Users and their assigned roles can be managed from the User Management section in the Return Manager (dashboard). Look for User Management on the left hand navigation bar in your dashboard:
Both users with Owner and Administrator roles have access to this functionality, though what each role can do varies slightly.
Both Owners and Administrators can:
- Search users by name, email, status or role
- View user details
- Navigate through the user list through pagination
Owners have the exclusive ability to:
- Quickly add new users
- Easily edit user data, manage assigned role, or activate/deactivate users
Creating New Users
Users can be managed from the User Management section. Easily add new users clicking the blue button Add User in the right corner. An invite is sent to the provided email address, and the user gets into a “pending” status until the invite is accepted.
Searching For New Users
Search for users within the User Management section on the top left corner of the page. Users can be search by: First Name, Last Name, Email, Role and Status.
Results are paginated to easily view all existing users.
To edit users' assigned roles or information, hover and select the user from within the User Management section. You can then edit user information, grant role permissions and activate/deactivate user rights.
Adopting New User Roles
Once activated for your account, all of your users will maintain the role assigned to them by the Returnly Support member when they were onboarded. In order to take advantage of the new roles, we recommend to identify which of your users have an assigned Owner role and edit the assigned role as needed.
