As you proceed with setting up the CRM account, your next step will involve adding users and determining their roles and permissions based on which they will perform specific tasks. A user is the one who manages records within the organization, whether their own or those shared by other users. You can add users based on the edition you have purchased and number of user licences that are allowed. Each user can sign-in to their account with an email address and password. Every user is assigned a role in CRM based on their hierarchial position within the organization. By default the CEO and Manager roles are available, you can add more roles based on your company's structure for example, sales manager, sales rep, etc. and set up a role hierarchy. Creating roles will allow you to provide appropriate level of access to the users depending on their position.
Profile is a collection of permissions that give users access to set of tools and features. Once you have defined the roles of the users you will have better clarity on the type of actions you want them to perform within CRM based on which you can create profiles and assign them to respective users.
There are two types of default profile permissions available:
Further depending on your businesses needs, you can restrain or permit access to specific features by using the manage profile permission option. Sometimes different team members are needed to pitch in for a particular project or deal. In such cases, you can enable the data sharing rules for an uninterrupted access to a record across teams and departments.
