- Restrict user access to the Procurement List by Location AND by Department.
- Limit what Departments Order Items that a Purchaser has access to.
The following article outlines how to update a Purchaser's permissions settings. Due to customization, your interface text may differ. In this article, we are using the default labels Location and Department. Learn more here.
Within Settings, select Manage Users under the Setup & Manage section.
Select a User from within the list.
Select the Roles & Permissions tab.
Make sure the Purchaser has the Procure permission. If not, click on Edit Permissions at the top, and check the box to add the Procure permission. Once the permission is added, you should see the Locations and Departments button next to the Procure permission. Location or Department may be listed differently in your account based on your organization's categories.
If the Locations have been assigned, continue to step 6. If not, select the Locations button next to the Procure permission to select the appropriate Locations. Once all the Locations have been checked, select the blue Assign Selected Locations button.
- Next, select the Departments button.
Check the Departments you want the user to be able to create Purchase Orders for, then select the blue Assign Selected Departments button. Make sure to add at least 1 department to Procure since, by default, the departments assigned will be 0. Once both Location(s) and Department(s) are selected, the Purchaser will only see Order Items from the Departments that they were assigned to.
- A Procurify team member can only turn this feature on. You will know this setting is unavailable if you do not see an "Assigned Departments" column next to the Assigned Locations column within a User's Roles & Permissions.
- Currently, this feature requires you to assign the appropriate Departments to each Purchaser, which means you must go into each user's Roles and Permissions to complete the setup. Until this is done for each Purchaser, they will not have access to the Purchasing List or be able to create new Purchase Orders. For this reason, we suggest enabling this feature after informing your Purchasers of the changes.
- With Advanced/Granular Permissions, the Permissions import template can be used to bulk update and assign departmental access to Purchasers.
