Managing Profiles - Online Help - Zoho CRM

Creating Profiles

Profiles in Zoho CRM help you define permissions for a set of users. For instance, the permissions required for a person from Sales team might differ from the permissions required by a person in the Marketing team. You can define the permissions for each profile as needed and specify the profile when adding a user.
Default Profiles

By default, two profile permissions are provided. You can only change the permissions for module and no other customization is possible. The two default profiles are :

  • Administrator Profile : This profile has access to all the features in the Zoho CRM account.
  • Standard Profile : This profile has limited access to the features in Zoho CRM account.
