Anything else you want to tell us about the help?

There are two levels of online access:

  • Online file user—a file user can only access an online company file they have accepted an invitation to use. File user access is the basic access you would give people working on your file.
  • Online administrator—an online administrator can work with any company file that is listed under the owner’s software serial number. In addition to this, an online administrator can invite more users, and purchase additional online files. You would only give administrator access to a person you trust to manage user access to your company file data, such as your office manager or your bookkeeper.

As people within your business change roles, the type of access they have to AccountRight and the tasks you need them to perform in relation to your company files might also need to change.
