Now you can set up access permissions to work with the product catalog. Your employees will see only the information they need and won't be able to accidentally delete an item or change its price.
Access permissions are represented as a list with buttons to enable and disable catalog features. You need to create a role and assign it to an employee or a department. After that, enable the access permissions for a certain role.

Go to the CRM section – Settings – Access permissions – Products and warehouses.
You can also go to the settings section from the product catalog page. Click on the gear icon and select – Access permissions.
How to configure access rights
By default, there are the following roles in the form: online store administrator, online store staff and warehouse clerk. You can create new roles or add employees to existing ones.
To assign roles to employees or departments, click "+" and select the people.
Then enable access permissions for each role.
