Security Roles

What are Security Roles?

Security Roles, or "Sec Roles", are used to determine what functionality a user has access to in TempWorks Enterprise; this includes which reports can be accessed and which fields can viewed/modified/saved. 

There is no limit to the number of Sec Roles which can be established; Sec Roles may also be customized for each client using TempWorks. 

Sec Roles can be customized to allow a variety of different permissions including, but not limited to: Entering Direct Deposit information on an Employee record, viewing specific reports, having permission to change a Customer status.

Common Sec Roles

The most common Sec Roles are "SR" (Service Rep), "PC" (Pay Clerk), and "SA" (System Administrator).   

*Note* Sec Roles are often referred to by their abbreviations.

  • The "SR" role is generally considered the role assigned to Front Office only users.  In general, this allows the user to view and add Employee, Customer, Order, Assignment and Contact records.  This user would not be able to enter Time, run Payroll or Invoicing and post Invoice payments. The minimum Sec Role is "SR". Each user can have additional Security Roles which would open more functionality.
  • The "PC" role is generally considered the role assigned to Payroll and Billing users.  It gives them access to all of the functionality available to the "SR" users as well as being able to enter Time, run Payroll, Invoicing and post Invoice payments.
  • The "SA" role allows the user to access all functionality of the "SR" and "PC" users as well as being able to access the Administration areas of TempWorks Enterprise.
