The users added in Concord CRM are the sales agents that will be responsible to work with potential clients and manage the deals.
You can create an unlimited number of users and apply appropriate roles with permissions based on what is the duty of the sale agent.
Navigate to Settings->Users.
Click Create User.
Add user name, email and role.
Click the Password tab and add user password for login.
Click the Localization tab.
You will be able to configure various localization config related to the user, for example, timezone, locale, first day of the week, date format, etc...
For most of the options like locale, the first day of the week, day format, etc..., the values will be taken from the general system settings and will be automatically populated for the user you are trying to create.
Click on Notifications to toggle any notifications.
Each user may be associated with multiple roles and have given permissions for various actions on Concord CRM, the user associated roles permissions are used to determine whether the user has granted access to perform a specific action.
It's highly recommended to give your users appropriate roles and adjust the roles permissions accordingly to the user duty in your sales workflow.
To create roles navigate to Settings->Users->Roles and click the "Create Role" button.
Give the role name and give permissions to this role, find below an explanation of what every permission means.
Contacts, Companies, Deals
- Owned Only - The user will be able to view records where is assigned to.
- All - The user will be able to view all records.
- Owned Only - The user will be able to edit records where is assigned to.
- All - The user will be able to edit all records.

- Owned Only - The user will be able to delete records where is assigned to.

Bulk Delete - If granted, the user will be able to perform bulk delete actions via tables for all records.
If you grant access to the role to Shared Inbox, the user associated with this role will be able to use the shared company email accounts created within Concord CRM.
In most cases, the email accounts will be general email addresses like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
When you give access to Shared Inbox, be aware that shared email accounts can be accessed by all of the team and each team member will be able to view and interact with the mails.
Each user in Concord CRM can belong to a team, the teams feature in most cases is used for reporting and filtering, for example, if you want to query all the deals that the owner belongs to team "A" and are with status open.
To create new team in your Concord CRM installation navigate to Settings->Users->Teams
- Click Add Team.
- Enter team name.
- Choose team members
- Optionally add team description
- Click Create
Filter by teams
As previously mentioned, the teams feature mostly is used for filtering, for example, to organize your week ahead of time, while viewing the deals table, you can apply the following filter:
The following filter will query all the deals which owner belongs to the "My Team", are expected to be closed "This Week" and are with status "Open".
With such filtering ability, Concord CRM helps you organize sales people and keep an eye of your teams progress.
You can invite user/sale agent to sign up to your Concord CRM installation without adding the user manually.
To invite user navigate to Settings->Users and click the Invite User button.
- Enter the user email address, this will be the user login email address and the invitation will be sent to this email.
- If needed, choose roles for the user.
- If needed, choose teams for the user.
- If needed, enable Super Admin and API Access.
- Click Send Invitation
The Invitation Created mail template will be sent to the invited user.
The invitation link expires after 3 days or after the user sign-up.
Concord CRM has a very important and unique feature, timezone per user.
Each sale agent added in Concord CRM must have its own timezone configured for the application, this will allow having sale agents all over the world working on potential clients and not interfering with the application default timezone.
Each user timezone must be set accordingly to the actual user timezone so the user can see all the dates within the configured timezone without thinking what will be the timezone when e.q. the activity the colleague created is due.
Super Admin User
Super admins in Concord CRM are the users who are able to perform any action and view any data without limitations, by default when you are performing fresh install of Concord CRM, the initial user is automatically marked as super admin.
