  1. Click “User Settings” in the main menu on the left-side of the screen
  2. Select the “User” tab
  3. Choose the restaurant(s) you want the user to access
  4. Fill in the user’s information
  5. Send an invite
  6. The user will need to accept the invitation via email before it expires

Boom! Bob’s your uncle. Still need help? Watch our tutorial or open a “request access” ticket anytime.


User Management Roles Refresher

Not sure who can do what on the Portal? Here’s a handy little guide.

  • Admin (usually the owner) – can add/change anything in the Portal
  • Editor (usually a manager) – can add/change anything in the Portal but cannot edit/add new users via User Management
  • View-only (usually a consultant/accountant) – can view most pages but cannot make changes. Can also use a limited version of Message Us to submit business-as-usual tickets.
  • App-only – can access the Restaurant App

And there you have it—two more useful features designed to help keep business running smoothly without skipping a beat. You’ll be a Portal guru in no time.
