Add An Admin User

Create additional admin accounts so that additional team members or designers can log into your site. Please follow the steps below to add a new account or see the documentation link above for more details.

1. Navigate to Settings > Users.

2. Click Add a Admin User.

3. Enter the information for the contact you are setting up including First & Last Name, Email, Username, and Password.

4. Set the permission level for the user of either Basic Admin or Domain Admin. Basic admins can only see sections of the admin panel that they have been granted access to under the Security section (which will appear below General Information after a Basic Admin account has been saved).

5. Assign or create a Sales Associate name for users who will be placing orders. When they are logged in, if they place an order it will be credited and tracked to this name. To create a new Sales Associate name click [Add New]

6. Checking off Is Developer will give advanced access to internal website settings and developer areas of the admin panel. If the user you are setting up is a designer/developer, they will required this access. Note that most users will not need this access level and it should only be given to advanced users involved in the website implementation and development. 

** This will allow users to access Website Settings, Layouts, Designer Launch, the Admin tab for Content Editor Page Properties and the ability to delete Contact Types that are marked as not "Deleteable".

7. Mark the account as Is Active so users can actively log into the account.

8. If you have POS PINs enabled, you can add a new PIN or replace an existing one to allow that user to log in to the POS with a PIN. If the PIN field is left blank and the user logs in to the POS using their Username and Password, they will be prompted to add a new PIN. 

9. Click Save

Admin User Access - Master Admin, Domain Admin, Basic Admin

Master Admin This user have access to all content on the Vin65 platform and to other websites controlled by the same company. Master Admin can only be created by other Master Admins as it is the highest level of admin user. In order for the account to be active, a Vin65 support representative must tie the account to the correct website agency in order for the account to function properly so please contact to grant them login access.
Domain Admin This user has access to all content on the Vin65 platform.
Basic Admin

With a Basic admin you can limited the sections of the Vin65 platform that a user can access. To limit access; select Basic Admin and go to the "Security" tab. Here you can check off the boxes for content this user will have access to. You will have to give the basic admin at least one section of the admin panel to have access to in the Security section in order for them to login.

An example: If you wanted to give someone access to the club area, but not products, you'd check off the main 'Store' box, and the 'Club' box below and leave 'Products' unchecked.
