Learn more about our latest permissioning feature, and how you can use it to grant access to your borderless™ business account to members of your team.
What is permissioning?
Our latest permissioning feature allows you to invite other team members to access your borderless™ business account and gain permission to perform certain functions. This allows for more streamlined and efficient access to key team members for a more smoothly run business overall.
Our next section breaks down the different roles that you can assign to team members, as well as the activities that these roles have permission to perform.
Roles and Permissions
There are four roles that you can select when inviting a team member to access your account: Admin, Standard, Developer, and Viewer. Each of these roles provide the new user with access to certain functions on your account.
These functions are Requesting Payments, Making Payments & Payouts, View Activity, Scheduled Payments, Plans, Integration, and Settings & User Management.
Here are the permissions for each role that you can select for new users, as well as product shots that demonstrate how simple and straightforward the process is:
Providing Admin access to a new user gives them full access to all business account functions: Requesting Payments, Making Payments & Payouts, View Activity, Scheduled Payments, Plans, Integration, and Settings & User Management.
Ideal For: Management Team. This is great for managers or people who control all your incoming and outgoing payments.
Providing Standard access to a new user gives them full access to Requesting Payments, Making Payments & Payouts, View Activity, Scheduled Payments, and Plans. It gives no access to Integration and Settings & User Management.
Ideal For: Daily Payment Personnel. This is great for key personnel who are part of the payments/accounting team inside your organization yet are not part of the management team. They can manage the day to day operations but not add bank accounts, invite other users or adjust any settings.
Providing Developer access to a new user gives them full access to only Integration. It gives read only access to View Activity, Scheduled Payments, and Plans. And it gives no access to Requesting Payments, Making Payments & Payouts, and Settings & User Management.
Ideal For: Developers. This is great for your development team who is doing any API integrations. They can test their work in the sandbox environment or monitor your production environment payments. They can view activity but not request or make payments on behalf of the company.
Providing Viewer access to a new user gives them read only access to View Activity, Scheduled Payments, and Plans. It gives no access to Requesting Payments, Making Payments & Payouts, Integration, and Settings & User Management.
Ideal For: Accountants. This is great for an outside accountant to view your payments and track expenses or revenue. They cannot make or request payments on behalf of your organization
