User access is simply different types of restrictions placed on users. An employee at a lower level might only have access to some things in the company but their manager or supervisor would have access to many more things in the company as they are higher up. This means that more restrictions are placed on the lower level employee as they have a different user access level than their supervisor who has far fewer restrictions.

User access levels are restrictions placed on different users on which aspects of the system they have access to and what actions they are authorised to perform. For example, a manager of a business may have access to information about their employees, the power to schedule different employees at different times, and business statistics such as sales etc. whereas an employee may only have access to their own information.

User access levels define what information the different users on your account can access and edit. They are particularly important for when you want to keep your employees' hourly rates confidential. When adding a new user, you'll be asked to assign them a user role.

User access levels state what data each user can view, edit or delete. These are usually based on a person's position

within an organisation and are set up and managed by the network administrator.
