In Concord CRM, a flexible roles and permissions system is implemented to ensure a structured access control based on the responsibilities of each user within your organization. Each user can be associated with multiple roles, where each role has specified permissions for various actions within the CRM. These permissions are critical in determining what actions a user can perform.
- Identify Necessary Roles: Determine the various roles necessary for your organization's sales workflow.
- Define Permissions: Clearly define the permissions each role requires to efficiently perform its tasks.
- Assign Roles to Users: Associate the defined roles to users based on their job responsibilities.
- Review and Adjust: Periodically review and adjust roles and permissions to ensure they remain relevant as job functions evolve or new features are added to Concord CRM.
It's highly recommended to give your users appropriate roles and adjust the roles permissions accordingly to the user responsibility in your company sales workflow.
To create roles navigate to Settings -> Users->Roles and click the "Create Role" button.
Give the role name and give permissions for the role being created, find below an explanation of what every permission means.
- Owned Only - The user will be able to view records where is assigned to.
- Team Only - The user will be able to view all records owned by the teams he manages.
- All - The user will be able to view all records.
- Owned Only - The user will be able to edit records where is assigned to.
- Team Only - The user will be able to edit all records owned by the teams he manages.

Imagine your company have multiple teams with managers, each team has one manager and multiple sales agents.
Each manager has to see all records of his team NOT all records of the company.
One manager can manage multiple teams, this means he has to see all records owned by his teams.
To achieve the scenario mentioned above, follow the steps below:
- Create a new role, for example: Team Manager.
- For the resource records you want to the team manager to view/edit/delete give the Team Only capability.
- Save the role.
- Create a new team, for example: "Energy Team".
- For the team being created, select team manager user (e.q. John Doe) and add users to to this team.
- Edit the team manager user (John Doe) and apply the "Team Manager" role.
Now, the team manager user will be able to view, edit, delete (if granted) all of the teams he manages users owned records.
If you add an admin account to a team and grant regular user permissions to manage team records, he will be able to view/edit/delete the admin account records as well.
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.
