Store administration groups give you a convenient way to limit your employees' access to your store depending on their experience and job duties.
For instance, you might hire someone to manage your online marketing efforts. You would want them to be able to work with MIVA Marketplace, Miva Merchant Mailer, and Miva Merchant Submit, and possibly with your affiliates program. But you would probably want to prevent them from changing your products or categories. To accomplish this, create a store administration group with those permissions, and assign your marketing expert to that group.
In another case, you might hire a part-time employee to handle customer calls on weekends. You could permit them to view, add, and edit customer information, so they could make corrections while on the phone with your customers. But you might want to restrict them from deleting a customer.
To view the members of an existing group, or to see what permissions have been assigned to that group, click Edit, in the right margin of the Groups list.
To create a new group, locate Groups [Add] below the store name in the left navigation area, and click Groups. If you are already viewing the Groups list, click the Add Group button, near the upper-right corner of the list.
For more information on creating and modifying groups, including details about assigning users to groups, and what each of the permissions means, see Add or Edit Store Administration Groups.
To delete one or more store administration groups, select the associated check boxes in the Remove column, and click Update.
Removing a group does not delete the group members from your system. It only rescinds whatever permissions they had been allowed as members of the group. Their status in any other groups will not be affected. If you want to delete a user, you can do so from the Users list, at the domain level.
