2. Select Create Admin User to create a new admin user.


3. Enter in:

  • The full Name of the user. This will automatically generate a unique username.
  • The Email address. This will be used to send them an email to set their password.

  • Permission, select your desired permission group e.g. managers view.
  • Search restriction, select the operation or specific rosters within that operation.
  • Turn on the blue toggle if the user should receive outstanding (STP) Single Touch Payroll submission reminders. This is mostly for finance/payroll teams.

Applying a permission group to a new user or existing user:

Permission groups can be applied when setting up a new user, or by editing an existing. To apply to an existing user:
