Duplicate Magento 1 user roles

Save your time and duplicate roles, using ‘Duplicate’ button on the Role Edit page. The Magento user role will be duplicated with all existing Magento 1 role resources. It is much easier to duplicate roles, nor creating new ones from the beginning.

  • Orders
  • Invoices and transactions
  • Credit memos
  • Shipments

Restrict access to Reports tab

Limit the access to reports depending on sub-admins roles.The option will help you to keep your store data safe and properly updated.This option let your Managers work with the relevant Reports (e.g. customers or sales). For example, the marketing manager will see product report with bestsellers.


Product management improvement

  • Choose necessary products and assign them to the corresponding admin users
  • View or edit products created by the user
