Blog | Manage Users and their Access

9th June 2014

The recent Shopit release 3.1.6 saw a core update allowing site owners to manage the users who access their platform, and also what level of access they have.

Manage users quickly and easily

By giving more control to site owners, clients can create new users to access their website admin and decide what level of privileges they are given. Being able to manage users quickly means that new staff can be added and leaving staff can be removed within seconds.

User monitoring

Given how much sensitive information is held in a typical eCommerce admin area, we have also made it possible for the site owner to monitor where those users are logging in from (IP address) and what device they are using. This move supports the tight Data Protection laws and helps give the site owner transparency over the goings on of the business.

We hope this changes prove a simple yet powerful addition to our ecommerce platform.
