Custom User Roles in Vend

In Vend, you have three different roles to assign to your users by default. The admin, the manager and the cashier. New roles can now be created and configured using a "base role" of cashier or manager.

  Note

This feature is only available on our Enterprise plan.


  Important

Only Admins can create and modify new custom user roles.

If you would like to create a custom role, follow the steps below:

1. Navigate to Setup in the side menu and choose Users.

2. Locate and click the Roles tab along the top of the Users page.

3. Locate and click the Add Role button along the top of the Roles tab.

6. Once all options have been configured, name your custom role at the top of the page, and click Save.


Once you've saved the custom role, it will be displayed alongside your other roles on the Roles tab and can be configured as per other roles.

To delete a custom role, click on the role you would like to delete, scroll to the bottom of the page, and click Delete.

Prior to deleting a custom role, all users assigned to that role must be re-assigned to a different role.

A custom role can be re-assigned to any user by editing that user and selecting a new role from the drop-down list.

  Important

Only Admins can re-assign users to either a cashier or manager-based custom role.

Managers can re-assign cashiers to a cashier-based custom role.
