Security


Once the module is activated, it can be accessed by Users with the requisite security roles.  Accounting Managers will have full access while Restaurant Managers and Schedulers will have limited access.


For the Manager Log Module, the following security roles have been added to Restaurant365

  • Manager Log Creator - this role gives Users the ability to create and manage Task Lists and Log Categories
  • Manager Log Admin - this role gives Users full Manager Log access
  • Manager Log User - this role gives Employees access to enter logs and review and complete tasks.  No administrative rights are included in this role.  
    • Note: this role must be given to all Employee users that will access Manager Log


Employee Users: Employees that have been granted access to the Restaurant365 App via the ‘App Access’ checkbox on their employee record will now also exist as Users in the Users list in the Administration section of the Accounting Module.  This Employee to User conversion process will happen automatically whenever an employee is granted ‘App Access’ on their employee record.  In order for these employees to access the Manager Log, a User with ‘User Setup’ will need to add the ‘Manger Log User’ security role to each of these Users.  This can be accomplished on the Employee User Record, via the User Roles screen, or via the Users & Security section in the Setup Assistant.  Click here for more information on Employee App Access.
