In addition to the Global settings for the Managers, the Groups and Staffs plugin also allows the admin to control the managers of the shop individually. The admin can do the same from here: WCFm Admin Dashboard -> Manager -> Manage Manager -> Custom Capability
For checking on the capabilities of the manager, the admin can click on the Edit icon which will him/her to manage-manager page providing editing options like Username, email etc.
In addition to those edits, the admin can set the capability for the particular member by checking the “ Custom capability” option provided. Here’s a screenshot below for better understanding:
From the toggle options given in the capabilities tab, the admin can set the required permission for the particular manager.
It’s to be noted that once a manager is assigned to a Group, then the capabilities of the group will prevail and hence the Custom capability option will not be available in the Edit manager page.
Additionally, one has to keep in mind that Individual capability set will always prevail over the Global settings provided in the site. So for example, if the Manage Product option is set to ON Globally ( for every manager of the site) and for a particular manager ( say manager1) the Manage Product option is OFF, then manager1 will not be allowed to manage the product of the assigned shop.
The admin can set the capability of a manager throughout the site by using Gobal settings. One can do the same from the following path: WCFM Admin Dashboard -> Capability -> Shop manager capability.
The Manager capability settings will give you number of toggle options from where one can actually choose the capability of the Staffs globally ( throughout the site)
The Admin can manage each individual staff by using individual settings provided by WCFM Groups and Staffs plugin. You can assign the capabilities of individual staff from here : WCFM Admin Dashboard >> Staff -> Staff Manage -> Custom Capability
The staffs are listed in the right-side panel-
Once you edit any staff from the above list, you will be redirected to ”Edit Staff” page as shown here:
From the “edit staff” page the admin can assign the capability of the staff by checking the “custom capability” option in the Manage Staff page. Once checked, the admin will get toggle options similar to Capability panel wherein one can assign the capabilities of the Staffs.
Like vendor settings if you are changing any particular capability of a staff individually, it over-writes the priority set Globally ( from the capabilities menu). Thus for example, if your Manage Product option in the capabilities tab as ON globally, and for a particular Staff ( say Staff 1) you have turned the option as OFF, then that particular Staff ( Staff 1) will not be allowed to manage the product of the vendor he/she is assigned to.
The admin can default capability of staffs from Global settings. Go to: WCFM Admin Dashboard >> Capability >> Shop staff capability
The Staff capability settings will give you number of toggle options from where one can actually choose the capability of the Staffs globally.
WCFM Marketplace allows a unique user level called “Staff” which allows the admin to associate them with vendor. Similar to vendor(s), WCFM Marketplace gives admin full access to control the capability of the Staffs assigned in the site. The admin can manage Staff globally or individually depending upon their needs.
Using Groups and Staffs plugin, the admin can assign a manager for respective stores and allocate them to groups as well. Quite similar to Staff, the admin can set the capabilities of manager both on Globally and individual level.
The admin can set vendor permissions globally,in groups or individually ( the later two are applicable only for site-owner using WCFM – Group & Staff plugin)
WCFM Marketplace offers compatibility with many useful modules like bookings, appointments, subscriptions etc. It depends upon the admin if they would like to allow their users ( vendors, staffs & managers) to have control over these integrated modules.
