Multiple permissions profiles

During implementation you will be asked to consider the permission requirements for . Like manager permissions, permissions are stored centrally as profiles, and each is assigned to a profile.
A single permission group called ‘Default’ for all may suit some businesses. Others may wish to have different permissions based on , allow team leads more access, or allow  to use different clock in methods.
To create additional profiles go to Settings > permissions, and click ‘Create new’.  Profiles can be created from Scratch, or you can base a new profile on a current permission profile. Profiles can only be deleted when there are no  assigned to that profile.

Segmenting using permissions profiles

Staff permissions profiles are also a way of grouping . Leave approvals, and leave request notifications are controlled by permission profile, so you may want to have more than one staff permission profile, even if all staff are given the same permissions.
To segment  in this way, create a new profile based on their current profile. Then update their permission profile manually by going to Core HR > People > or via file upload. More on updating profiles here.
