What are the different user permissions in ME?

In MarginEdge, there are five types of user accounts, each with varying permissions within the system:

"User"   A "User" can upload invoices, place orders, enter inventory counts, and view most operational information in ME.   They cannot add, edit or remove products or recipes, nor can "users" setup, close or delete inventories.  This role is typically used by in-store non-managerial staff.

"Sous Chef" The “Sous Chef" is a modified version of the user role. Users with this role have the additional ability to add, edit, and delete and upload pictures for recipes but only for recipes restricted to their restaurant unit, not for any other restaurant in a restaurant group. Any recipes they create are automatically restricted to their restaurant.

"Manager"   A "Manager" in ME has all the privileges of a "User" plus can add or edit count sheets, close, re-open, and configure inventory, and add other "Users" or "Managers".

"Accountant"   An "Accountant" can view most operational information (products, recipes, inventory), plus has access to all accounting-related screens, such as the Export, Categories, and all mapping pages, such as Category Mapping and Vendor Mapping.   

"Restaurant Admin"   This type of user has access to all elements of the MarginEdge system.

 *There is an additional role called PMIX Mapper which can be given to any user. This role gives additional permission to a user with user, sous-chef or manager to do PMIX mapping.
