How do I configure access control permissions for features based on roles?

Once you have created a role, the next step is to configure feature access for it. Follow the steps below to configure access: 
  • In the Admin Panel, under Permissions menu, click and open Roles
  • Hover over the role for which you want to edit the control settings and click on Permissions.
  • The control settings for this particular role across various features will be listed in the form of check boxes.
