About Shipping KPI system - Role management

Role management is a function to manage role and accessibilities within the Shipping KPI system. This function allows account managers to limit some users in their own companies to see just a certain set of SPIs, KPIs, PIs, META data and CUSTOM fields. Furthermore, the function can help users to hide some SPIs, KPIs, PIs, META data or CUSTOM fields that they would not like to see when entering data and benchmarking.

Account manager can access role management by selecting “My Company” as in the picture below. In “My Company” section, account managers can create roles, modify roles and edit permissions for each role.

Role management is a concept to give users or account managers more control when using the Shipping KPIs system. In general, role concept includes four main functions: preconfigured global roles, managing roles, assigning role to users and access requests management.
