Unlike many other payroll systems, SimplePay does not charge for or restrict the number of users on the system. This means that you can give system access to all the people that need it, whether this is a department head who approves leave, a payroll administrator who processes payroll or an external accountant who completes filing submissions. While our user settings already have a range of roles and restrictions that you can configure, we’ve had several requests for giving users read-only access to the system.
We are delighted to announce that we’ve upgraded our permissions to enable you to give users read-only access, with extensive flexibility that lets you customise this on a company, pay frequency or pay point level.
When adding a user, you can still select their permission role (e.g. Leave Admin) and restrict them to specific companies, pay frequencies or pay points. However, when restricting users with Admin or Leave Admin roles, you can select the type of access for each company, pay frequency or pay points, namely:
- Full: gives the user full access to the areas of the system as defined by that particular role
- Read-only: gives the user read-only access to the areas of the system as defined by that particular role
- None: gives the user no access
For more information on setting up users with read-only access, refer to our help article here.
We hope that you love the new feature! Please reach out to us if you have any trouble setting up users or if you have any further questions.
