This article looks at how to allow access rights to certain system settings. To learn more about how to give a non-admin additional access to certain areas, please see the link below for the Edit Access Rights function and the use of the filters:


As well as allowing a user access rights to certain areas of the system, you can also allow them access to certain Settings options. You will find the available options at the bottom of the 'Custom Access Settings' list. 

If you provide an employee edit access rights to all of the available Settings for a specific location, in most cases they will only be able to view and update this information for that location - this is explained below.

Holiday & Absence Settings

If you have access to the Holiday & Absence Settings for a number of locations, there will be a drop-down box at the top of the page to allow you to switch between these locations and update the Settings for each.

Authorisations Settings

You are able to create Authorisations rules for the specific location you have access to. When selecting Approvers, you will still have the ability to select anyone in the company to approve requests from this location. 

Accruals Settings

You can create Accrual rules for this location only. 

Performance Settings

You have the ability to create Performance Reviews for this location, as well as view existing review templates. Please note that you would still require the standard ‘Performance’ access right to have admin access to an employee’s performance review.

ATS Settings

This setting works slightly different. When given access to the ATS Settings, you will have access to all of the ATS settings. Often, recruitment teams will work closely together across all locations - but don’t worry, the ATS Settings do not contain sensitive employee data.

You will be able to update the default Pipeline order, create email templates, configure Application and Vacancy Settings etc. 

Logbook Settings

Here you can give a user access to create and edit logbook screens, as well as managing the access. For more on custom logbooks, please see:

Ripple Settings

Give a user admin access to the Ripple area, where they can build interactive and background ripples, schedule them and assign them to employee’s records. To learn more about this area, please see:

Document Settings

Give access to the Document settings tab. This will allow a user to create and edit document templates that can later be applied to an employee’s record. TO learn more about creating document templates, please see:

Quick tip - When giving access to any of the settings areas, the system will only take into account the Location you have selected for that user.
