When inviting users to help manage your business in FoodLogiQ Connect, you have the ability to restrict their location access. You can define a user's access upon invite or edit as needed from the User Management page. By default every user has access to all locations. However, you may want to limit a user's access for different reasons.
Why would you want to restrict location access?
- As a restaurant chain operator, you may have users that work at a single location. You can restrict their access so they don't need to select their location when submitting a quality incident and can only view incidents relevant to them.
- If you have regional managers or area directors who are responsible for a subset of restaurants, you can select the locations that are relevant for that user. This restricts the information that the user can view within Connect.
