Staff Member Access

Staff Team Access grants Team Access to Staff Members with complete OwnerRez access. Note that granting Team Access to Staff Members gives them access to everything in your OwnerRez account including bookings, payments, emails etc. Staff Members are basically a clone of you.

Staff Team Access is not restricted by property or role - they can see and do everything. Be careful with this! The only limit you can apply to a Staff Member is that you can hide the Reports menu. Hiding the Reports Menu won't prevent Staff Members from seeing the financial information in individual bookings, but does make it less convenient for Staff Members to see all your financial numbers neatly organized and readily exported. If you are unsure, grant them Portal User Access instead.

WARNING!

Staff Members have full admin access to *EVERYTHING* in your account including bookings, payments, emails etc. Make sure you want to do this. If not, grant them Read-only or Portal User Access instead.

Review the Team Access Overview to learn more about the Team Access feature.

Team Access Area

Everything is managed in Settings in the Team Access area. OwnerRez Users can navigate to your Team Access account by clicking on the Team Access link on the lower left menu.

Navigate to your Team Access account by clicking on the Team Access link on the lower left menu.

To grant Staff Member Access to your team, complete the steps below for each Staff Member or Owner. OwnerRez Users will invite each Staff Member with their name and email address. When you invite a Staff Member, an email will be automatically sent to them with a link they can use to log in and set their password.

In the Team Access area, you will note that you can toggle between the Staff and Portal Tabs.

Staff Team Invitations

Note we are in the Staff tab. You can invite Staff Members by clicking on the Invite Staff Member as shown below.

 

When sending Staff Member Invitations, users have the following options for Staff access and permissions at the time of the invitation.

  • Read-only access – this user may see everything but cannot make changes
  • Full admin access – this user can do everything you can do
  • Hide reports menu – this hides the reports menu to the user

Be very sure that you know whether Staff Team Members should have Full admin access to *EVERYTHING* in your account including bookings, payments, emails etc. If you are unsure, grant them Read-only or Portal User Access instead.

Below we are giving Bob Peterson full Staff Admin Access minus Financial Reports. Notice the Hide reports menu checkbox is checked. Click on Invite as shown below.

Invite New Staff Member

Staff Team members can access the Advanced Tools area (Settings > Advanced Tools) and configure their own Alerts.

By default, the Hide reports menu checkbox is unchecked meaning that the invited Staff Member will have full admin access to *EVERYTHING* in your account including Financial Reports.

 

If you want to hide your Financial Reports from the Staff Member, you will have to check the Hide reports menu checkbox.

Staff Member Invitation Acceptance

When Staff Member Bob Peterson receives his Staff Member Email Invitation, and clicks on the link located in his email invitation, the link will open your Portal Log In page, as seen below. On this page Bob Peterson's name and email will be prepopulated. New Staff Members will Create a new account and can do the following during the invitation acceptance process:

  • Send an email to you, the OwnerRez User that sent the initial Email Invitation.
  • Update their First and Last Names.
  • If the Staff Member needs to update their email address, OwnerRez Users will need to send a new Portal Access Email Invitation.
  • Staff Members can create their own Password
  • Staff Members will have to check the I agree to the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy checkbox.

Staff Member Email Invitation Acceptance

The Staff Member will then click on Create my account.

If the Staff Member already has a Staff Member Team account, they can use the same log in and password. Staff Member that already have an account can do the following during the invitation acceptance process:

  • Click on the I already have an account radio button.
  • Send an email to you, the OwnerRez User that sent the initial Email Invitation.
  • Update their First and Last Names.

The Staff Member will then click on Link this account.
