User Profiles

Profiles control access to what you can do. For example, a user’s profile will determine whether or not they can access all accounts and contacts, certain types of matters, even time entries or any other object/tab at all, and if so, what are their permissions to view or edit these records.

A profile contains the settings and permissions that control what users with that profile can do within AdvoLogix and the Client Portal.
