Which permissions have each role configured in Sesame?

Plans: Time, Advanced, HR Starter, HR Professional and HR Enterprise. 

There are three type of roles in Sesame: 

  • Higher roles
  • Lower roles
  • Customised roles

The permissions that each role has are explained below: 

Higher roles

Owner: This role will be assigned to the account creator by default. This person will have access to all the functionalities, and permits, and will have full visibility and editing power over the employees of the account. It is the only role that can manage groups of companies. Therefore, it is the only one that will be able to assign company roles and generate new companies. At the beginning of the account, it is the only one that will be able to offer viewing permissions in some functionalities such as Payroll.

General manager: They will also have the same viewing and editing capabilities over employees as the owner but will not be able to manage groups of companies. This is the main difference with the owner.

HR: This role is designed for the validation of requests, both for holidays and absences as well as clock ins/outs. It is responsible for the management of all these requests as long as there is no manager assigned to it.

In terms of accessibility, they have the same accessibility as the administrator.
The HR chat is also your responsibility. This chat, once installed, can only be viewed by this role. Users with the HR role are responsible for maintaining conversations with employees who use the chat.

Lower roles

Manager: They have the same access over their employees as a manager. The only difference is that the manager can supervise employees independently of a department or workplace.

Workplace administrator: A workplace administrator can create new users and configure their employee files, holidays, working days... In addition, they will also manage incidents and requests from teams in the workplaces they manage.

Department administrator: A department administrator can create new users and configure their employee files, holidays and working days. In addition, they will manage requests for absences, holidays and employees' clock ins/outs for the departments they manage.

Employee: By default, all users will be created as employees with the exception of the first owner, although they can be assigned any other type of role later. Employees will only be able to clock in/out, make holiday and absence requests, allocate time to tasks and projects, answer evaluations or check individual information.

Customised roles

Communicator Role: This role is designed to make announcements to the team through the Announcements section.
