How to change an employee's role from Employee to Administrator


Once an employee is created in the system they will automatically be set up as an Employee giving them limited access to the system.  To give an employee full access to the system you will need to change their role to Administrator.  To do this you need to click on the Edit option to the right-hand side of the screen.

This will bring up the employee's details.  On the right-hand side of the screen you will see a blue box which lists the main details for that employee.  Inside that box you will see a statement which says either Switch role to Administrator or Switch role to Employee. To switch this employee to an Administrator click on this statement and it will automatically change their role to Administrator.  Vice versa if you want to change an employee from an Administrator back to an Employee.
